Tiger Woods, Lindsey Vonn Use Facebook To Confirm That They Are Dating

By David Cohen 

The rumored relationship between golfer Tiger Woods and injured skier Lindsey Vonn is now official, as both sports stars posted about it on Facebook — a rare move for the notoriously private Woods.

Woods posted the following update on his page Monday, along with four pictures of him and Vonn:

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.

And Vonn posted at around the same time:

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
