While Tiger Woods recovers from severe injuries in the aftermath of a deadly car crash, his girlfriend is making sure he gets all the love by visiting him.

Herman wore a mask as she headed in with LaCava by her side. Dressed in stone-washed jeans and a basic white tee with a tie-dyed jacket, she carried a paper cup and a backpack.

The golfing royalty was rushed to the hospital following the car crash in Los Angeles. He had to be extricated from his SUV and suffered open fractures in two bones.

Woods' ankle was shattered, and he required screws and pins to stabilize the bones of his legs. A deputy from the LA County Sheriff's Department, Carlos Gonzalez, said he was lucky to be alive.

When Gonzalez and his team found him, Woods was calm and lucid. He was wearing his seatbelt, which Gonzalez believes saved his life. No charges have been filed against Woods. 

Woods was driving his Genesis SUV by himself and was believed to be driving at a high rate of speed. Authorities found no indications of braking or skid marks.


Woods and Herman started dating in 2017. Herman used to manage one of the golfing legend's restaurants in Florida. In January, a source told People that the couple had been getting more serious. 

"They live together at his house now."

The source also revealed Herman gets along pretty well with his ex-wife, Elin Nordegren. The ladies reportedly have a friendly relationship, and Nordegren is happy for her ex. 

The source further shared how Nordegren and Woods do a great job of co-parenting. The duo got divorced in 2010 after hitting a rough patch due to a scandal.
