Tiger Woods says he's dating Lindsey Vonn in Facebook update
Now that's what we call a relationship status update.
This season has been great so far and I'm happy with my wins at Torrey and Doral. Something nice that's happened off the course was meeting Lindsey Vonn. Lindsey and I have been friends for some time, but over the last few months we have become very close and are now dating. We thank you for your support and for respecting our privacy. We want to continue our relationship, privately, as an ordinary couple and continue to compete as athletes.
Vonn also confirmed the relationship on her Facebook page.
I guess it wasn't a well-kept secret but yes, I am dating Tiger Woods. Our relationship evolved from a friendship into something more over these past few months and it has made me very happy. I don't plan on addressing this further as I would like to keep that part of my life between us, my family and close friends. Thank you for understanding and your continued support! xo LV
The Daily Mail (UK) reported last week that Woods and Vonn spent the weekend of the WGC-Cadillac Championship on Woods's yacht at a Miami-area marina. Celebrity tabloids have linked the pair since since they were both in Vail in November.
Vonn tore her ACL and MCL and had small fractures of her femur and tibia in a terrible crash at the Alpine world championships in Austria on Feb 5. She is rehabbing to compete in the Winter Olympics next year.
Both Woods, 37, and Vonn, 28, are divorced.
