Tiger Woods appears to ignore excited fans who want an autograph at the Open in Carnoustie

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.

Francesco Molinari gets his hands on the Open trophy as he wins first ever major tournament at Carnoustie

But that was a long way from the American's mind during his incredible run 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."

Woods eventually finished in a share of sixth place as Italy's Francesco Molinari – his playing partner on the day – birdied the 18th to win by two.
