Tiger Woods is fresh off his April Masters win, his first major title in 11 years, and his friends are crediting his girlfriend Erica Herman for “taming” the golfer and aiding his comeback, according to Page Six.
“She’s been 100 percent supportive, when he was down with his health and all that stuff,” Arjun Atwal, a friend of Woods and fellow golfer told the tabloid.
“When an athlete or man in any walk of life has support from his partner, or vice versa, you end up doing well. Or as well as you can. And when Tiger does as well as he can, he usually beats everyone.”
Herman and Woods have been dating since 2017. However, their relationship was thrust into the spotlight after Woods passionately kissed her after his momentous win. The pair originally met when the New Jersey native was in college at the University of Central Florida. As a side job, Herman waited tables at a bar Woods to frequent.
