Tiger Woods’ girlfriend, Erica Herman, has been a staple at most major golf events in which Woods has competed. The Masters was no different — Herman was watching Woods from the gallery, along with his mom and his two kids, Sam and Charlie. Generally speaking, however, Herman seems to do her absolute best to stay out of the spotlight.
Herman has been dating Woods for about two years now. Despite Woods’ high level of fame, the two enjoy quiet nights in and around Jupiter, Florida, where Woods owns a home. They are rarely photographed by paparazzi and don’t often step out at big events (unrelated to golf) together.
Here’s what you need to know:
Herman Was in Augusta for the Masters & Hugged Woods After His Historic Win
After Woods finishes his final round on Sunday, he was greeted by his two kids, Sam and Charlie, his mother, and Herman.
After finishing his putt on the 18th hole, Woods threw his arms up in the air to celebrate. He was first greeted by his son, Charlie. Woods picked up his son — who was clearly so proud of his dad. Next, Woods hugged his mother, who was also standing by, cheering. Woods then shared an embrace with his daughter, Sam, and, lastly, hugged Herman, who was wearing a red top and a large black hat.
It wasn’t at all surprising to see Herman at The Masters. She is a huge supporter of Woods and was at the 2018 Ryder Cup, The Match: Tiger vs. Phil, and The Tour Championship 2018, to name a few.
Last year, after Woods won The Tour Championship, he shared a sweet moment with Herman on his way to the clubhouse. The two shared a kiss — one that instantly went viral on social media.
Tiger Woods’ Girlfriend Hadn’t Been Seen in Public This Year
The last time that Herman and Woods were seen out in public together was back in December. The couple attended a Presidents Cup media opportunity at the Yarra Promenade in Melbourne, Australia. Serving as captain of the U.S. Team, Woods will be able to select himself as a player if he doesn’t automatically qualify, as PGATour.com notes. Ernie Els will serve as captain of the International team.
Herman was photographed sitting next to Woods at the event, which was held on December 5. She was dressed in casual country club attire, her yellow top matching the detail in Woods’ Presidents’ Cup pullover. Herman appeared fresh-faced and wore her hair in a ponytail. The couple looked very comfortable together.
Prior to that event, the two were together at the Ryder Cup. Herman attended a few events with Woods at Le Golf National.
Herman and Woods have been spotted out and about together over the past couple of years — the two were photographed at a World Series game at Dodgers Stadium in 2017 — but in 2019, the two hadn’t been spotted together at all until today.
