  • Tiger Woods is back and healthy, eager to pull off a strong performance at The Masters.
  • Woods is dating Erica Herman, who is a manager at a Florida restaurant he owns.
  • The divorced golfer started dating Herman last year, and the couple made their first appearance together in April.

Tiger Woods has teed off at The Masters in Augusta, Georgia.

His girlfriend may be watching him from the crowd at the most prestigious golf tournament in the world. Tiger Woods – one of the game’s all-time greats and a four-time Masters champion – will be cheered on by Erica Herman in person or from afar.

While little is known about Tiger’s girlfriend and their relationship, her potential appearance at The Masters may be one of the few times she has been seen publicly.

Below, what we know so far about Erica Herman:


Multiple sources have cited Herman as being 33 years old, which would make her a full decade younger than her beau.
