In photos obtained by TMZ today, Erica Herman was seen outside the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in West Carson, California, along with the golfer’s caddie Joe LaCava.
The duo were no doubt lifting Woods’ spirits after the SUV he was driving rolled off the road in LA on Tuesday morning.
Although the golfing champ did not sustain any life-threatening injuries, he did experience open fractures in his leg and shattered his ankle and required orthopedic surgery.
“Mr. Woods suffered significant orthopaedic injuries to his lower right extremity that were treated during emergency surgery,” the hospital’s chief medical officer Dr. Anish Mahajan said in a press release shared on Woods’ official Twitter account.
Dr. Anish Mahajan added that Woods’ injuries “were stabilized with a combination of screws and pins”.
Woods and Herman, 35, have been dating for the past four years, debuting their relationship in September 2017 at the Presidents Cup in New Jersey.
The couple met when Herman served him at The Woods Jupiter, one of his restaurants in Florida where she was employed. At the time, she was studying political science at the University of Central Florida in Orlando and hoped to become a lawyer.

Herman has been by Woods’ side ever since — and this isn’t the first health scare they’ve faced together. Back in April 2017, she was believed to be his main support system when he underwent back surgery.
“She’s been 100 per cent supportive, when he was down with his health and all that stuff,” Woods friend and fellow professional golfer Arjun Atwal told Page Six in 2019.
“It’s not like he has a bunch of people around. She was right there for him.”
Woods was previously married to Elin Nordegren from 2004 to 2009 and they share two children together: daughter Sam, 13, and son Charlie, 12.
