Lindsey Vonn made her Masters debut this morning.
The Olympic ski racing champion was spotted at the Augusta National Golf Club veranda next to a putting practice green watching Tiger Woods warm up.
With her not-inconspicuous sighting on golf’s biggest stage, the couple – which recently confirmed they’re dating – is clearly comfortable taking things public!
Dressed in a long beige dress that hid a large brace on her surgically reconstructed right knee, Lindsey Vonn plans to watch the first hole in person.
After that, she’ll have to watch from the clubhouse.
“I can’t really walk too much yet,” she said, adding that she arrived in Augusta, Ga., for The Masters a few days ago with Tiger. “And it’s so hilly here.”
Vonn said she’s also getting acclimated to golf culture.
“Very different from a ski race,” she said with a smile.
With her right leg up occasionally as she sat on the veranda, Vonn, who also wore a wide-brimmed straw hat, said the rehab of her knee is on schedule.
She plans to compete in the 2014 Olympics. For now, though, she’s there for her man. “I’m looking forward to The Masters,” she said. “I’m here to the end.”
Look for world #1 Tiger to be there at the end, too – oddsmakers have him as the strong favorite to don his fifth green jacket at the presitgious event.
Team … Liger?
