Although it’s been speculated for months that Tiger Woods, 38, has been dating Lindsey Vonn, the golf star made it official: On Monday, he posted several (professional-looking) photos of himself with the 28-year-old World Cup alpine ski racer accompanied by the following statement:
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.
The announcement comes just days after photos were taken of the pair leaving Woods’ private yacht in separate golf cars.
The two athletes, who first met in April at a charity event, have been romantically linked since November.
