“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,” Woods wrote on his Facebook page. “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.”
Lindsey Vonn also posted a statement to 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”
Also released with the statements were four very carefully selected photographs. The photos show the couple smiling together, and are so carefully staged and scripted that they almost look comical. The photos resemble the photos that couples send out when they announce their engagement. Well, we say, whatever makes them happy. But it does seem sort of silly to throw up all of these statements and photos about dating, and then say “leave us alone”. Ahhh, celebs.
Rumors have been swirling about Vonn and Woods dating for quite some time now. We all already know the story behind Tiger’s divorce from Elin Nordegren, (sex scandal ring a bell?), and Lindsey’s divorce from her husband was just finalized last month. (The pair split back in 2011). When Lindsey’s brother was spotted giving skiing lessons to Tiger’s two kids, people started to wonder if the two could possibly be dating.
But the real kicker was when Lindsey had her horrible ski accident at the Alpine World Championships back in February. Turns out, Tiger dispatched his private jet immediately to fly to Austria and pick her up so she could come back home to recover. Friends don’t send private jets to pick up friends in other countries, do they? Nope, that is strictly a boyfriend job!
These two have been through the ringer as far as love and relationships are concerned, and it’s nice to see them happy. It also seems like they are a great pair, with their talents and love of sports. They both understand the business, and seem like they would be made for each other! We wish Tiger and Lindsey the best of luck in their future together!
