Tiger Woods might be the crown prince of golf but that is not the only reason he makes headlines. Thanks to his rather prolific career, every aspect of the athlete’s life arouses media and public attention. Recently, Tiger Woods and Erica Herman have been gathering a lot of buzzes after they were seen displaying affection publicly at several events.
The golfer is no stranger to having his relationships being the topic of discussion on various platforms. The ruckus that followed his cheating scandal led to his wife chasing him out of the house in the middle of the night, wielding a golf club.
