Golfer Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn just announced their relationship on Facebook and Twitter with a series of professionally-shot photographs and now they would like their privacy.
The 37-year-old golfer confirmed rumors that he was dating the 28-year-old Olympic skier in a message on his Facebook page, saying, “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”
Rumors had swirled around Woods and Vonn for the past few months. Vonn neither denied nor admitted her relationship with Woods in January, but when Tiger sent a plane to pick up the Olympic skier after her injury last month, it was clear that they were something more than friends.
In her own statement, Vonn said, “I guess it wasn’t a well-kept secret but yes, I am dating Tiger Woods.” Woods apparently sent his private plane to Austria to pick up Vonn last month after her knee injury.
