Love is in the air as Woods and Lindsey Vonn confirm dating

Sport has a new power couple: Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn confirmed they’re dating.

Two months after rumours began circulating in Europe, Woods and Vonn posted separate items on their Facebook pages Monday afternoon to announce their relationship. The posts include photos of golf’s 14-time major winner and the Olympic and World Cup downhill ski champion.

‘This season has been great so far and I’m happy with my wins at Torrey and Doral,’ Woods said. ‘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.’

Woods made a stop in Austria - where Vonn was competing in the Alpine skiing world championships - in January on his way to Abu Dhabi to start his season.

Two weeks ago, after he won the Cadillac Championship at Doral for his second win this year, The Daily Mail published photos that showed a woman, who appeared to be Vonn, in a golf cart at the marina where Woods’ yacht ‘Privacy’ was docked.  ‘I guess it wasn’t a well-kept secret but yes, I am dating Tiger Woods,’ Vonn said on her Facebook page. ‘Our relationship evolved from a friendship into something more over these past few months and it has made me very happy.’

Both said they wanted to keep everything else private. Woods posted four photos with Vonn on his page, while Vonn’s had one of those photos.

Vonn is recovering from right knee surgery, something familiar to Woods, after a February 5 crash. Her divorce from Thomas Vonn after more than four years became official in January. They separated in 2011. Vonn, whose maiden name is Kildow, decided to keep Vonn as her last name after the divorce.
