TIGER WOODS was cheered on by girlfriend Erica Herman and his children Sam and Charlie during his birdie blitz at the Open.
The 14-time Major champion surged to the top of the leaderboard at Carnoustie with his loved ones behind the ropes.
Herman, 33, was pictured alongside Woods at last year’s Presidents Cup – the first time the couple had gone public.
Daughter Sam, 11, and son Charlie, nine, are from Woods’ previous marriage to Swedish model Elin Nordegren.
That ended in July 2010, some eight months after Woods was revealed as a serial cheater.
Nordegren is said to have walked away with around £76million as part of the settlement.
But that was a long way from the American’s mind during his incredible charge at the Major he has already won three times.
And his nearest and dearest looked to loving every second of seeing their man do what he does best.
Woods, 42, said he was desperate to show his kids what he could do on the course.
They have missed his years of dominance, with Sam a baby when he won his last Major, the 2008 US Open.
He has previously said: “I want them to see what I’ve been able to do my entire career.”
