It's official: Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn are dating.
Woods posted a message on Twitter and a collection of photos on his Facebook page of the two -- officially confirming his relationship with the Olympic gold medalist.
Woods wrote on Facebook :
"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."
Vonn posted her Facebook Fan page:
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
Vonn is currently nursing and rehabilitating a badly injured right knee, hoping to defend her 2010 Olympic downhill gold medal in Sochi, Russia, next year.
At Doral on March 10, Woods won his fifth golf tournament in less than a year. At the Masters, which starts April 11, Woods will attempt to win his 15th major championship, second all-time to Jack Nicklaus.
