Woods announces that he is dating Olympic gold medalist skier Lindsey Vonn via Facebook.
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 tells CNN that boyfriend Tiger Woods has been an ‘inspiration’ in helping her recover from knee surgery.
Tiger and I both went through rehab with our injuries at a similar time, so we were both in the gym together and pushing each other and motivating each other, both frustrated. I think we both helped each other a lot through that time, and I drew a lot of inspiration from him and I think he does the same with me. We continue to push each other and it’s a really positive relationship in that way.
Vonn and Woods, announce breakup after dating for three years.
Tiger and I have mutually decided to end our relationship. I will always cherish the memories that we’ve created together, Vonn wrote on Facebook. Unfortunately, we both lead incredibly hectic lives that force us to spend a majority of our time apart. I will always admire and respect Tiger. He and his beautiful family will always hold a special place in my heart.
