Tiger Woods is enjoying a second stint as a Team USA assistant captain after receiving rave reviews for playing that same role at last year's Ryder Cup. But while he's "having a blast" with "a great group of guys" at this year's Presidents Cup, it also appears that the 14-time major champ brought some female company with him to the New York City area.
For a second consecutive day, Woods was photographed navigating Liberty National with Erica Herman. And on Friday, Getty Images went as far as identifying Herman as Woods' girlfriend. Here were the two together on Thursday:
And here's a slew of photos of the two on Friday:
Herman appears to be the same woman who attended the U.S. Open with Woods and his kids earlier this month. She was also the general manager of The Woods pop-up restaurant at the Genesis Open in February, according to this article from Woods' website that she's quoted in. Woods' TGR Ventures runs that PGA Tour event, which Woods was committed to play until he withdrew with a back injury.
So it is unclear whether Herman is a business associate, friend, or actually Woods' girlfriend, but she has been inside the ropes all week and she's certainly dressed like the other significant others in attendance:
And if they are a couple, we're excited for Woods, who deserves some happiness after a pretty rough 2017. In any event, for inquisitive minds out there, Erica Herman is the mystery woman walking around with Woods this week at Liberty National. And we don't expect—nor are we entitled to—any other info from Tiger on the matter.
UPDATE: Here's a photo of the two on Saturday.
