"I was unfaithful, I had affairs and I cheated. What I did was unacceptable," he said at the time about his numerous affairs. "I hurt my wife, my kids, my mother, my wife's family, my friends, my foundation and kids all around the world who admired me."
From marriages to mistresses to girlfriends — Woods' list of relationships that followed is nothing short of interesting.
Scroll through the gallery to see Tiger Wood's past and present flames:
Woods first met Elin Nordegren at the 2001 Open Championship while she was working as a nanny for golfer Jesper Parnevik. The two later tied the knot in 2004 and later welcomed daughter Sam, 14, and son Charlie, 13. The couple split in 2009 after it was revealed Woods had been stepping out on their marriage.
The woman at the center of Woods' cheating scandal, Rachel Uchitel, had an affair with the California native which came to light in 2009. The nightclub manager later alleged she signed a non-disclosure agreement that banned her from speaking about the golfer with anyone.
Uchitel also noted in the HBO documentary Tiger, "I have stayed quiet about this story, but at this point, I have nothing left to lose. My name hasn't lost the stigma at all. It's always been 'Rachel Uchitel comma Tiger Woods' mistress.'"
The PGA tour champ and olympian Lindsey Vonn, 37, publicly dated from 2013 before calling it quits in 2015. The skier noted of their relationship's demise, “I will always cherish the memories that we’ve created together. Unfortunately, we both lead incredibly hectic lives that force us to spend a majority of our time apart." The two have remained friendly with each other since their split.
Woods and Kristin Smith dated from 2015 to 2017. However, things reportedly did not end on great terms as TMZ reported the pro athlete and Smith were in arbitration over a non-disclosure agreement following their break up.
Woods and Erica Herman reportedly met while she was managing one of his Florida restaurants and began dating in 2017. The brunette beauty was in attendance at the 2018 Tour Championship where the athlete got a winning kiss from his lady.
Herman is even close with Wood's ex-wife and his children as she was seen with them at the PNC Championship in 2020.
