Woods, Vonn announce relationship

March 18, 2013


Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn are officially in a relationship.

Woods announced on his Facebook page on Monday that he is dating the Olympic and World Cup champion skier.

"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. "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."

Woods is playing at this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard. He is seeking his eighth title at Bay Hill, which would match Sam Snead's record for the most victories at a single event. The tournament begins on Thursday at Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando, Fla.
