Golf: How Erika Herman put Tiger Woods on the road to redemption



After winning his first major in 11 years, Tiger Woods was spotted giving his girlfriend Eric Herman a public kiss.

Since then, the PDA has cemented Herman as a woman who put the troubled golf star back on her way to redemption. Sun even called her Woods' "savior".

But who is the woman Woods has been with for only 18 months, which has finally marked the change in how a man humiliates scandals?

The end of Woods' six-year marriage to Elin Nordegren in 2009 sparked the beginning of the fall of American golf legend from grace.

Nordegren left their marriage with a £ 72m (NZD $ 138m) deal when his alleged affair with the New York chief nightclub Rachel Uchitel was uncovered.

It was reported that the former world number one had spent thousands of dollars on prostitutes on tour.

Woods then began therapy for sexual dependence before being arrested for having five different types of drugs in his system and falling asleep at the wheel.

Finally, his relationship with Olympic skier Lindsey Vonne also broke out between 2012 and 2015, when Vonn revealed that they said goodbye because they spent most of their time separately.

Although a friend of the golfer later claimed that he was unfaithful again with "nameless, anonymous woman".

Woods then met Herman through his Florida restaurant, Woods Jupiter, where she was employed as general manager in 2017.

However, it was not revealed whether Woods had personally hired Herman to run his pop-up restaurant, but after crossing the road, their romance quickly took off.

Herman announced the status of the couple by wearing the "player's husband" badge on the presidential cup later this year, but he tried to escape the headlines, be labeled "golden excavator" and said she had been on Woods for over ten years.

The 33-year-old joined Woods and his two children for a vacation in the Bahamas at the end of 2017 before being spotted in the stands next to the children at the US Open.

It is said that Woods, who allegedly slept with about 120 women during his marriage to Nordegren, cheated on his texas stylist ex, Kristen Smith, with Herman.

However, Woods denied all claims he cheated again, stating that he broke up with Smith a month before seeing Herman.

Two days after making their relationship official, Herman escorted Woods to court where he confessed to his reckless driving fee and later joined him in the Royal Box at Wimbledon – put on a united front once more.

Woods has since managed to avoid any other scandals, holding Herman by his side at all major tournaments.

And after yesterday's public moment, it seems that Herman will probably be seen in many others.
