Tiger Woods has made his return to golf after he suffered traumatic injuries following a major car crash in 2021 as his fans delight in seeing him take part in the 2022 Masters
The famed golfer has started the year off with a triumph after being induced into the golf Hall of Fame in March.
Away from the golf course, Tiger’s personal life has been the centre of his later public life after his marriage broke down following his infidelity scandal.
But what is his relationship with his ex-wife Elin Nordegren like now and how did he meet his current girlfriend Erica Herman?
Do Tiger and Elin get along?
Since their very public divorce in August 2010, the pair have been working on their relationship.
Tiger shared in June 2019 that they are on much better terms now and communicate a lot better, which he feels is incredible.
He explained that he wishes they had done that much earlier on after their separation but likes that he has a “best friend” like that.
After Tiger’s accident, Elin took care of their children, daughter Sam, aged 14 and Charlie, aged 13.
When the golfer became well enough for visitors, it was reported she made sure their children were able to see him in hospital.
Elin received more than $100 million or around €91 million in the divorce settlement, according to TMZ, and is now in a relationship with former American football player, Jordan Cameron.
They welcomed their first child together, a son, in October 2019 and are quite private about their romance.

What is Tiger’s relationship with Erica like?
Tiger first met his now-girlfriend Erica Herman while she was completing her undergraduate degree at the University of Central Florida in Orlando.
During their studies, she worked at the nightclub called the Blue Martini, which Tiger frequented.
They reportedly became a couple after Erica graduated and made their relationship public at the Presidents Cup in September 2017.
Erica is said to get along very well with Tiger’s children and has reportedly gotten the seal of approval from Elin.

How is Tiger’s health?
Following his serious car crash, Tiger suffered substantial leg injuries which required him to undergo rehabilitation.
He shared that even though he had done rehab before for other injuries, this experience was more painful than anything else he had dealt with.
During the accident, he suffered comminuted open fractures to both his tibia and fibula bones in his right leg, which meant he needed to focus on strengthening it to compete again.
What is Tiger’s net worth?
Tiger is one of the highest earning athletes in the world, only beaten by Michael Jordan.
The pro golfer has earned around $2.1 billion or €1.9 billion throughout his career and is estimated to be worth over €730 million in 2022.
