Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods have been reportedly dating since November, according to HollywoodLife.com, citing sources close to both individuals.
Tiger, 37, has been seeing Olympic Gold medalist Lindsey, 28, for two months, and HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY reveal how met. “They met through the ski community, because Tiger is an active skier,” a source close to Lindsey reveals. “Lindsey has been teaching Tiger’s kids Sam and Charlie how to ski.”
It must be serious if she has met his kids! The pair is currently busy with their respective sports careers, but they are trying to make time for each other and their budding romance.
“Their busy schedules mean they don’t get a lot of time together, but they constantly talk on the phone,” a Tiger source tells Star. “And Tiger has made more of a commitment to Lindsey lately — he’s pulling out all the stops.”
The website is also reporting that Woods took Vonn to Antigua for a “romantic vacation,” and a few weeks ago, Tiger allegedly visited Vonn in Austria, where she was competing in the Audi FIS Alpine Ski World Cup event, before he headed to the Middle East for the Abu Dhabi Championship.
Following Woods’ infamous apology to the world in 2010, Vonn mocked the staged event, according to Time.com:
When a member of her Vonn-tourage tells her that Woods gave a few friends hugs after ending his statement, she cracks, “They’re like, ‘Yeah, you’re awesome, you go have that sex.’ ” The room breaks into a laugh. Then she describes a skit she would want to perform if asked to host Saturday Night Live: picture Vonn at Woods’ podium, blue backdrop and all. “There’s something you don’t know about me,” Vonn says in a faux solemn, apologetic voice. “Tiger, you’re like my idol, and I too have a sex problem.” More laughter. “That would be freaking funny.”
Well, as we’ve discovered in recent years, Tiger has more of a sense of humor than he leads on.
“Lindsey is currently in the midst of the World Cup season in Europe,” the statement read. “Her focus is solely on competing and on defending her titles and thus she will not participate in any speculation surrounding her personal life at this time.”
Woods, unsurprisingly, would not comment on his personal life.
