Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn: Officially a Couple

Tiger and Lindsey

Wait, there’s an update! (March 30, 2013) —  So, there’s this. Everyone else was thinking it, I even said it in my original post… but US Weekly took it a step farther and made it their latest covers’ tag line: ‘In Love With A Sex Addict’. Oh’ gossip magazine writers get to have all the fun don’t they? Here’s a blurb from magazine:

“The couple first met at Woods’ April 2012 Tiger Jam charity fundraiser in Las Vegas, and the attraction was immediate. “With Tiger, Lindsey is happier than she’s ever been,” a Vonn friend told Us Weekly.” Ah, young love.

Well for the first time since his divorce from Elin Nordegren, Tiger Woods says he’s off the market. He and his World Cup Downhill Skiing Champion girlfriend, Lindsey Vonn, made their romance “Facebook official” today. Aw, how very middle school of them.

Here’s what Tiger posted:

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.

Here’s Lindsey’s announcement:

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

Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn Dating The cute couple, they look a little more like good buddies.

Both of the athletes have been married in the past. In fact, it was Vonn’s previous marriage to her former coach, Thomas Vonn, that left her estranged from her father for years. He apparently didn’t approve of her marrying someone 9 years older than her. So I’m sure he’ll be thrilled now that she’s linked up with a recovering sex addict who is 9 years older, right? Truth be told, I hope they’re both happy and can move on from whatever hang-ups they’ve had in the past and will live happily ever after. Though, I doubt they will.
