Tiger Woods’ Secret Romance With Joanna Jagoda: Why Did the Golf Legend Keep Their Affair a Secret for 10 Years?

Tiger Woods has a place on the highest pedestal with legends like Sam Snead and Jack Nicklaus. He was the youngest of the lot to have earned the Career Grand Slam. Yet his name has made most headlines for amours, drunk driving, and related lawsuits.

Out of the affair storylines of the champion golfer, the one with Joanna Jagoda is central. Who is this woman that Tiger Woods had the longest relationship with?

Woods crashed his car in a single-vehicle accident while driving drunk back in 2009. It is also speculated that the pro golfer was hiding an affair in the car at the time. Rumors suggest that his then-wife stepped in to help, only to be taken aback.

Why did Woods try so hard to steer this ship clear of the press? Joanna Jagoda may have sabotaged the marriage between Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren.

Tiger Woods’ Marriage was Infested with Affairs
Woods and Elin Nordegren married on October 5, 2004. He had ranked as a blazing golf star for over six years by then. Elin Nordegren was a notable model at the time.

Together they raised a family that would be his ‘tiger team’ through 2010. Nordegren was admired by Woods and the public for her support of her husband. She credits Woods as a great father in return. The marriage was lionized for the love, luxury, and jollity it exuded.

Needless to say, the ‘happily-married-family-man’ attracted good press for years. This was the prime reason for Woods covering up the affair as well as he could.

Turns out, it was also not the only affair Woods had. Major media like New York Daily News and Fox reported that Tiger Woods had several romantic involvements at the time. Many women came out of the woods claiming relations with the star. The bad press back then still attracts jabs.

Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren separated formally on August 23, 2010.

Tiger Woods may have been concerned about Business Deals and Public Image
The tarnished image of the PGA champion in 2009 and 2010 was bad for business – more so for the companies that had ties with him. Accenture, AT&T, Gatorade, General Motors, and TAG Heuer dropped deals with him. Golf Digest magazine got rid of the deadwood in 2010, starting with their February issue.

Daily News estimated that his business network may have lost a shared minimum of $5 billion or twice as much owing to the scandals. Tiger Woods may have foreseen the massive backlash and hid the affairs.

Affairs still keep having the ‘tiger’ by the tail. Tiger Woods is still involved in amorous scandals costing him millions and continued fallout.

Who is Joanna Jagoda and what does she do?
Joanna Jagoda was a student of law when she first crossed paths with Woods. The two started dating soon. The record-making golf player was photographed frequently with Joanna Jagoda in 1999 and 2000.

Rumors are that Woods continued relations with Jagoda even after he got engaged to his then-girlfriend Elin Nordegren in November 2003. This adds up to ten years from 1999 to 2009 of Woods hiding his heart.

Jagoda today works for JP Morgan Chase, functioning as Executive Director and Assistant General Counsel as well.

Did Tiger Woods Cheat on his Ex-Wife with Joanna Jagoda?
They say tigers don’t change their stripes! Eldrick Tont “Tiger” Woods has been infamous for his affairs – married or not. He has managed multiple relations as a bachelor, married man, and divorcee. He is also caught under the influence of ‘tiger juice’ occasionally.

The ex-wife of Woods, Elin Nordegren is rumored to have found out about her husband’s affairs after he helped him out of a car crash. The couple divorced soon after and Woods have been less active on the fields ever since.

One could think that injuries are keeping Woods in downtime. Yet it is hard to believe Tiger Woods may not have cheated on ex-wife Elin Nordegren with Joanna Jagoda. Why Woods built a nest in the meantime is a headscratcher.
