Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn have officially confirmed their relationship today in a systematic PR move via the couple’s Facebook pages.
Tiger, a 14-time major winner and in the argument as the greatest golfer of all time, posted the above image to his Facebook page along with the following explanation:
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.
Lindsey, an Olympic gold medal winning skier, followed up on the news with her own Facebook post:
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 of the two being an item have been swirling for months, especially after Tiger sent his private jet to pick up Lindsey after her recent brutal crash. Now that it’s official we can all say congrats to Liger (Napoleon Dynamite was ahead on this one)!
