Tiger Woods’ girlfriend Erica Herman is not much for the public spotlight despite dating one of the most recognizable athletes in the world. During a rare interview with Radar Online in August 2019, Herman emphasized that the couple is still going strong.
“Our relationship is great,” Herman noted. “Great with no end in sight.”
Some fans were curious about their status during last year’s PGA Tour after she was not seen at some the tournaments, but Herman admitted to Radar that she “doesn’t like public attention.” Herman has been a regular at Woods’ tournaments prior to the sport being halted by COVID-19.
“We haven’t split,” Herman explained to Radar. “I’ve been to every tournament he’s been at.”
