How Tiger Woods Reportedly Met His New Girlfriend

Tiger Woods is a couple of holes away from winning his first PGA Tour event in more than 5 years. The 42-year-old golfer is several strokes up on the rest of the field at the Tour Championship.

It's about to be a huge night for Woods, a 14-time major champion, who's now playing some of the best golf he ever has.

Woods spoke before his final round about how much this would mean to him.

“I’ve gone through a lot this year to get myself to this point, and understanding and fighting my way through it, I'm certainly more equipped than I was in March because of what I've gone through,” Woods told reporters. “It feels great to have worked my way into this spot. This has been a difficult setup. It's a golf course that's very easy to make bogeys, and it's difficult to make birdies. My game plan throughout the week has been very conservative.

“And occasionally I'll get hot for a couple holes and try and take advantage of it. It hasn't been real complicated.”

Woods will have some major celebrating to do tonight if he can hold on in the final couple of holes. It's possible he'll be celebrating with his new girlfriend, Erica Herman.

Herman was the general manager of Woods' restaurant, The Woods, in Jupiter, Fla. Herman has been credentialed as a "player's spouse" during recent tournaments, per Golf.com. She's since been spotted with Woods at other tournaments.

Most recently, she was spotted with him after the PGA Championship.

The couple was spotted at a restaurant earlier this year, too. Photos can be seen here. And, earlier this summer before The Open, they were seen at Wimbledon.

Tiger Woods appears to be excelling both on and off the golf course these days.

The final round is being televised on NBC.
