Tiger Woods has a new girlfriend because of course he does. He took her to a three day golf event, The Presidents Cup, over the weekend, the one where Trump dedicated a trophy to Puerto Rico in a “let them eat cake/have this useless symbol” moment. Initially I thought it was a Trump-planned event, but it’s an ongoing PGA event and real Presidents were also there including Obama, Clinton and GWB (ok I use the term lightly with that last one). It’s also been held every other year since 1994 and was thankfully not at a Trump course this year, it was at the Liberty course in NJ. The US won for the seventh time in a row.
The Daily Mail has the details about Tiger’s girlfriend, a 33 year-old manager of one of his restaurants (he likes restaurant managers) named Erica Herman, and they have photos of her on Sunday looking super clingy while Tiger looks over it. I’m including some pictures here which highlight his body language with Erica vs. other people at the same event. My favorite photo is this one, where Tiger looks like he’s about to eye roll. Apparently Tiger has publicly dated at least two woman since Lindsay Vonn, but I haven’t been paying attention until now.
Remember how Tiger got that DUI in May from mixing too many prescription meds? He was so intoxicated he was sleeping behind the wheel of his damaged car on the side of the highway. He could barely stay awake during the field sobriety test. Well he did some kind of rehab which doesn’t sound like traditional rehab, just doctor supervision to reduce and monitor his drugs so he doesn’t abuse them, and he looks better now. I hope he’s cleaned up.
He still seems addicted to sex and looking for his next fix though, especially in these photos from Sunday. I’m thinking that Erica worked his last nerve over the course of the three days by being a clinger and an opportunist, she posed with the other player’s wives and had “player spouse” access credentials, but that’s just me playing photo assumption. My guess is that she got promoted from sidepiece to event date when there was an opening and that she just blew it by not playing it cool. Sidepieces have to be cool girls above all else if they want a shot at promotion. See: Lindsay Shookus. Tiger isn’t married anymore but I would bet he has the same pattern with a primary girlfriend and a bunch of women on the side. The last one accused him of that, and given what he got up to during his marriage that’s to be expected.
