Herman and Woods started dating before their relationship was made public in September 2017. She used to work as the general manager at his restaurant, The Woods Jupiter until February this year.
Later they were seen wearing matching Dodgers jerseys at the second game of the World Series in Los Angeles. Herman was also seen with Woods and his children as they watched the New York US Open Men's Singles Semi-Finals and Final in September last year.
In December, she was seen again with Wood and his children daughter Sam, 11, and son Charlie, 9, on a beach in the Bahamas. In July this year, the pair appeared at Wimbledon to watch the tennis.
Woods fell from grace when stories came out of him cheating on his wife, Elin Nordegren, of 6 years with numerous women. They divorced in 2010.
He then dated Olympic medalist Lindsey Vonn from 2012 to 2015. From November 2016, he started seeing stylist Kristin Smith but they separated in 2017 after The Sun reported that she believed he was unfaithful to her.
Woods has fought against back problems that stemmed from a crippling back injury and had 4 back surgeries. He also dealt with the backlash from his DUI arrest in 2017.
