Meet Erica Herman, Tiger Woods' mysterious girlfriend who is joining him at the Ryder Cup

Rob Carr/GettyTiger Woods has been dating 33-year-old Erica Herman for the past year. Herman was in Georgia to celebrate Woods’ PGA Tour Championship last weekend, and now she has joined him in Paris for the Ryder Cup.

Last weekend, Tiger Woods did what some thought was impossible: capping an epic season-long comeback to win his first PGA Tour event since 2013 Sunday afternoon.

Erica Herman-who formerly managed a restaurant Woods owns in Florida-was at on-site at East Lake Golf Club to celebrate with her boyfriend following his big victory. The next day, Herman joined Woods on his flight to Paris for this weekend’s Ryder Cup at Le Golf National.

Below, take a look at what we know so far about Erica Herman and her relationship with Woods:
