Tiger Woods' rumored and newly-credentialed girlfriend Erica Herman, who tagged along with him at the U.S. Presidents Cup over the weekend, turns out to be the former general manager of the golfer's pop-up restaurant, Golf.com reported.

Herman, 33, was photographed numerous times with the former No. 1 golfer in the world, snuggled up to him and holding on to him while on the course, though the relationship has not yet been confirmed.

Herman was wearing a "player spouse" credential at the event, a tag normally given to the wife or girlfriend of the event's players and captains, Golf.com noted, and Woods was serving as team captain Steve Stricker's assistant at the annual golf tournament at Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, New Jersey, according to the New York Post.

Herman was introduced as the general manager of Woods’ on-course pop-up restaurant The Woods at 10 at the Genesis Open in Los Angeles back in February.

"We are bringing the (TGR Ventures) expertise and experience to a live event," Herman said on TigerWoods.com at the time. "It's just a taste of our menu. This is a way of sharing what we have learned and done. It's a great opportunity for people to see what we can do."

Woods, 41, married Elin Nordegren in 2004, but they divorced in 2010 following his admissions of infidelity. The golfer, who has not played in a tournament after back surgery earlier this month, also had a highly publicized relationship with gold medal-winning skier Lindsey Vonn until they parted ways in 2015, Variety noted.

Woods announced in August that he had split up with girlfriend Kristin Smith some time last year, TMZ reported.

Woods entered a DUI first-offenders program in Florida in August after he was arrested in May on suspicion of driving under the influence in Palm Beach County, CNN reported.

He is expected to plead guilty to a lesser charge of reckless driving Oct. 25 in connection with him completing the program, CNN noted. He was found sleeping in his 2015 Mercedes-Benz with the car running on May 29.

Woods issued a statement after the arrest saying he had "an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications" he was taking for back pain and a sleep disorder, CNN said.

According to TMZ, a Palm Beach County toxicology report stated that Woods had traces of THC, the main chemical compound in marijuana, in his system along with hydrocodone (painkiller, generic form of Vicodin), hydromorphone (powerful painkiller known as Dilaudid), alprazolam (Xanax), and zolpidem, a sleeping pill more popularly known as Ambien.

The golfer hasn’t played competitively since pulling out of the Dubai Desert Classic in February, and he has had undergone multiple back surgeries, including a fusion surgery. It was his fourth operation since 2014.
