“Erica controls Tiger and gets rid of people around him because she is threatened and jealous,” a source told RadarOnline.com.
The insider described their relationship as “toxic.”
“She has a temper,” the source said. “They fight and argue.”
Although Woods, 42, “seems miserable with her,” the insider believes they continue to date because he “doesn’t want to be alone.”
After the tournament, Woods was filmed kissing Herman, 33, as she gave him a pat on the butt. Herman is general manager of Woods’ Jupiter, Florida restaurant, The Woods Jupiter. They went public with their relationship in November 2017.
Although Woods came in second during Sunday’s final round at the U.S. PGA Championship, it was considered the return of the legendary golfer, who has been struggling recently. The father-of-two failed to qualify for the 2018 U.S. Open.
He was also arrested in May 2017 for driving under the influence. Five different types of drugs were found in his system, according to a toxicology report.
He pled guilty to one count of reckless driving. He was ordered to a 12-month probation period and to enroll in a treatment program.
Woods was involved in a legal battle with ex-girlfriend Kristin Smith. In April, RadarOnline.com reported they are in arbitration to settle a dispute over a non-disclosure agreement.

Reports claim Smith signed an NDA in exchange for money when he was allegedly busted cheating on her. Despite signing the contract, Smith believed the NDA was not valid.
“This whole arbitration has made Kristin mad and he’s just buying time in hopes for her silence,” a source told RadarOnline.com. “When this is over if he doesn’t get his way, Kristin will have a major story to tell.”
The insider also alleged that Woods “is using photos of her to try to hurt her.”
