The fourth and final major championship of the 2022 golf season has arrived.

Thursday morning, The Open Championship from St. Andrews will begin play. Tiger Woods, a 15-time major champion, is set to partake in this year's Open Championship. 

Woods has been over in Europe for more than a week, now. He passed on playing in the U.S. Open in order to get healthier for The Open Championship. 

Erica Herman, the longtime girlfriend of Tiger Woods, has joined her boyfriend over in Europe.

Tiger Woods and Erica Herman have been dating for several years. They reportedly met through work, as Erica, who came up in the restaurant industry, worked for Tiger's restaurant, The Woods, in Jupiter, Florida. 

The happy couple has been together for several years, with Erica being right off the No. 18 green when Tiger won The Masters back in 2019.

Tiger and Erica have since been seen together at several prominent golf tournaments.
