Tigers Woods and Lindsey Vonn Confirm Relationship

After months of speculation, PGA golfer Tiger Woods and Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn have officially confirmed via social media that they are a couple.

Vonn wrote on Facebook, "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"

Tiger also used the Facebook forum to share photos and this message: "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."

Rumors spread like wildfire after Tiger sent his personal plane to transport Vonn back to the U.S. for surgery after she suffered a serious injury during a downhill practice run in Austria.  She tore two ligaments in her right knee and suffered a tibial fracture.

Woods and Vonn are both divorced.  He has two children with ex-wife Elin Nordegren.
