Tiger Woods confirms he's dating Lindsey Vonn

So, the cat's out of the bag.

Golfing great Tiger Woods confirmed a very loosely kept secret Monday: that he and six-time reigning World Cup downhill skiing champion Lindsey Vonn are an item.

On his Facebook page, Woods wrote: "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 posted on Facebook, saying: "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"

Vonn is currently nursing and rehabilitating a badly injured right knee, hoping to defend her 2010 Olympic downhill gold medal in Sochi, Russia, next year.

At Doral on March 10, Woods won his fifth golf tournament in less than a year. At the Masters, which starts April 11, Woods will attempt to win his 15th major championship, second all-time to Jack Nicklaus.

    Open golf tournaments, such as the U.S. Open, are held to try and give amateurs the chance to break into the field of professional golf. Golfers participate in a series of smaller tournaments to qualify for the Open where they proceed to the big tournament where they compete against professionals. The last amateur to win a U.S. Open was back in 1933.."

    It is heartbreaking to see that Vonn could be so could be so inept with relationships. However, just as intelligence lacks common sense, beauty lacks judgment.
    The point is that if Woods would cheat on Ellen, Woods will certainly chest on Vonn. She is certainly ignorant if she thinks otherwise.

      Lindsey Vonn is my skiing hero. That girl knows how to fly down the slopes. She takes some pretty spectacular spills,too. Hope she gets her knee back in shape for the Olympics. Tiger is a cad, but maybe he learned his lesson the last time around. Otherwise, Lindsey could probably kick his butt, without taking a golf club to him.

      Devon, what point are you trying to make? People should stick to their own race? What a racist, ignorant comment! Comments like this are the reason I usually avoid message boards. They are where idiots are allowed to freely display their ignorance. I personally wish the the best for Tiger and Vonn. She is very beautiful and famous and he is very rich and famous. Why wouldn't they be attracted to each other. They are also both world class athletes so they likely have a great deal in common other than race.

      Grey, you clearly is NOT black so you are QUALIFIED to say what blacks should do or not. Blacks have to live with being black everyday and blacks have to deal with race issues within thier race that came from slavery and thinking their are not good enuf or pretty enuf. There are some blacks who become successful and then deal less with black because they think they are no longer black and do not want to be black. See, you do not have to deal with this, black do. There are black children who have a negative view of themselves because of what this "white society" have taught. Again, you are clearly is NOT black so you would NOT understand. This issue is beyond you. ALso, when blacks get into trouble when they turn their backs on the black communikty, those same blacks run back to the community. Funny when Tiger was in trouble, he went back to focus on his black daddy and the inner city. So even Tiger knows the race. Plus,TIger is Asiand and Black YEt he dates blonde whites. Tiger is oolor stuck and look at color as well.

      Well, JO, Tiger ONLY DATES WHITES. SO even he sicks to ONE RACE. Personally, dating one race does NOT make person a racist (Racist is word some people need to read learn the meaning) it is a CHOICE; however, if you hate another group and deal with your own, that is racist.
