The 41-year-old has had well-documented issues with infidelity and admitted to cheating on ex-wife Elin Nordegren during their marriage which ended in 2009.

‘Kristin suspected it, but he would always deny it by belittling Erica’ a source close to the blonde beauty – who bears a striking resemblance to Nordegren – told Radar Online.
‘Kristin eventually caught them together. It was a big mess.’ they said of Woods’ alleged affair with Herman.
A source close to Smith said she’s ‘not the type to run her mouth’ but that she’s ‘very embarrassed’ by how the pro golfer handled their relationship.
It was revealed by Radar that Woods was dating Smith in November 2016. It was revealed in August 2017 that they had split months earlier.
