Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn Confirm Their Relationship... via Facebook?
After months of speculation, Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn has confirmed that she’s happily dating---Tiger Woods. Yes, that Tiger Woods. The Tiger Woods who sent his private plane to pick her up after she was injured on the ski slope last month. The Tiger Woods she’s been friends with for quite a few years. The Tiger Woods who was married with two children until well, you know. That whole “angry wife smashing his SUV with a golf club because she found out he’s been cheating on her with dozens of other women for years” thing.
Maybe Lindsey didn’t hear about that?
Otherwise I really don’t understand why anyone in their right mind would get into a relationship with Tiger. Yes, he went to rehab for sex addiction and, after laying low for some time, seems to be trying to regain his golden boy status, but still. You’d think the recently divorced Vonn could have dated a few more men before settling on a guy who was the butt of late night comedian jokes for an entire year.
Woods announced their relationship on his Facebook page today:
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.
Despite his past, I do hope it works out for both of them and they’re able to make a fresh start. But if I were Lindsey, I’d still sleep with a nine-iron under the bed.
