Tiger Woods couldn’t stop grinning as he was crowned winner of the 2019 Masters this weekend – but it wasn’t just the trophy that put a smile on his face.
The golfing champion was seen giving his restaurant manager girlfriend Erica Herman – who he has dated for 18 months – a huge embrace after the tournament, showing her off in front of the world’s cameras.
After eleven years without a major title, the couple’s public kiss cemented Erica as troubled Tiger’s ‘savior’.
The pair’s PDA comes just months after Tiger mouthed “I love you” at Erica after winning the Ryder Cup last September.
It marked a change in the player, who has been dogged by scandal after he reportedly slept with around 120 women during his marriage to Elin Nordegren, who hit him with a golf club when she discovered his infidelities.
As well as being arrested for having five different drug types in his system and falling asleep at the wheel, Woods underwent surgery to fuse two vertebrae in his lower back last year.
So who is the woman who’s tamed the Tiger?
The party girl who ‘chased Tiger like a puppy’
Erica announced the couple’s official status by wearing a “player spouse” badge, normally reserved for WAGs at the President’s Cup in October 2017.
It’s believed that the golf star met his first brunette girlfriend in more than a decade through his pop-up restaurant, The Woods Jupiter, in Florida, where she worked as a general manager for several months in 2017.
When their romance was made public US site Radar Online reported that Erica was known as ‘a gold-digger’ and a ‘big partier’ within her inner circle.
Insiders also said that Erica, who has a background in the hospitality trade, had been hoping to date the pro golfer for a decade.
Speaking to Sun Online in September, they claimed: “Erica’s been chasing Tiger around like a puppy for close to ten years. I’m not sure if his wife knew, but I’m not sure how she couldn’t know.
“I can’t believe Tiger is out in public with her now”.
From clearing messy tables to dating a multi-millionaire
It’s not clear whether Tiger personally hired Erica to work at his restaurant or not, but they will have crossed paths on several occasions during her time there.
The super-luxe sports bar, where staff wears Nike trainers and classy sportswear while providing guests with hot towels after their finger food, is said to have a tight-knit staff team.
But Erica stopped working at The Woods in February 2018.
Just two months after they made their relationship official in October 2017, Erica accompanied Tiger and his two children with Elin – daughter Sam, 11, and nine-year-old Charlie – to the Bahamas.
The restaurant manager was also spotted sat next to the children at the US Open in September 2017, although she and Tiger had not made their relationship public.
There were rumors at the time that Tiger had cheated on his Texan stylist ex, Kristin Smith, with Erica.
It was reported that Tiger was dating Kristen in November 2016, although the pair are said to have split just nine months later in August 2017 – a month before he was spotted with Erica.
At the time a source told Radar Online: “Kristen suspected it, but he would always deny it by belittling Erica.”
Just two days after making their relationship public, Erica accompanied him to court in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, where he pleaded guilty to reckless driving being found asleep in his car in May 2017.
She later joined him in the Royal box at Wimbledon in July 2018 – putting on a united front once more.
Could Erica be the first woman he’s faithful to?
When his six-year marriage to Elin was breaking down in 2009, there were numerous reports he’d spent thousands on escorts while on golf tours.
The final straw for Elin came when his alleged affair with New York nightclub boss Rachel Uchitel was uncovered.
Elin left their marriage with a £72m settlement, and Tiger started sex addiction therapy.
Tiger then went on to date Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn for three years from 2012 to May 2015, when Lindsey revealed they had parted ways due to spending “the majority of our time apart.”
But a friend of the golfer later claimed he had been unfaithful again with a “nameless, faceless woman”.
“Lindsey found out about women again, always while he’s on the road. Just like when he was with Elin.
Yet this time around, it seems Tiger is willing himself not to fall in to same trap, with Erica being seen been by his side at all major tournaments.
And judging by the PDA we witnessed at the Masters yesterday, she’s likely to be spotted at far more.

Forget Obinim, Obofour And The Rest; I’m The Most Powerful Ghanaian Preacher : Opambour Explains Why
Founder and leader of Ebenezer Miracle Worship Center, Reverend Ebenezer Adarkwa Yardom aka Opambour has stated categorically that he is the most powerful Ghanaian preacher all other things being equal.
His assertion comes just after Bishop Obinim asserted that he is the most powerful man of God in Ghana and that his colleague pastors don’t come close to him in the spiritual world.
Bishop Opambour’s assertion seems to be a subtle response to Obinim who is the founder and leader of the International Godsway Church. However, Opambour in a recent television broadcast revealed that he is the only one God has given him the power to do his work both spiritually and physically.
“Let me tell you something when they talk about the power of God you don’t understand. You have to come so that I can tell you how the power of God looks like because I am the only person he has given his power. He has given me all the powers to do his work spiritually and physically. There is nobody powerful in Ghana than me…so come and let me help you”. Opambour revealed in a recent telecast on Prophet 1 television.
He, therefore, called on anyone who needs his help to consult him because no one comes close to him in the spiritual realm. He added that those who’ve never had an encounter with His should run to him as soon as possible.
Bro Sammy To Face 15 Years Imprisonment If Found Guilty : FDA
Gospel musician Brother Sammy is likely to face 15 years imprisonment and could also be fined a maximum amount of 180,000 cedis if found guilty.
According to the Public Relations Officer for the Food and Drugs Authority, James Lartey, the gospel musician flouted the law when he advertised his drug on social media without approval from the agency.
“We’ve reported him to the police because he has flouted our law. Well, this is an offence against the law, so we’ve left everything for the police. So the police will be doing the investigation and questioning, and if found guilty he will be sent to court.
According to the Public Health Act, Act 851, when you flout the law and you’re found guilty, you’ll pay a minimum fine of GHs 90,000 or maximum fine of GHs 180,000 and then if the Judge decides to jail you, the minimum jail term is 15years and the maximum is 25years or the Judge can say he will do both” he disclosed.
He also stated that his outfit is putting measures in place to bring offenders like Bro Sammy to book for selling unapproved products.
The gospel musician was arrested over the weekend after he revealed that he has the cure for cancer, diabetes, Asthma and the deadly HIV/AIDS.
Bro Sammy stated that his drug which is ‘Spiritual Divine Healing Water’ was a revelation by God.
He was however invited by the Food and Drugs Authority to aid in the investigation because his so-called healing water was not approved by the agency.
