THE RUMOURS WERE true, Tiger Woods is dating world-champion skier Lindsey Vonn.

The couple jointly announced it on Twitter and Facebook this morning, posting photos with the 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.”

It’s his first public relationship since getting divorced.

of a Vonn-Woods romance began in January, when Tiger was spotted in Salzburg with Vonn. In February, Tiger gave Vonn a ride from Switzerland to the US in his private jet when she injured her knee.

Two weeks ago there were rumours that they were hanging out on his yacht in Florida.

“I guess it wasn’t a well-kept secret but yes, I am dating Tiger Woods.” Vonn wrote on her Facebook. ”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”

Vonn filed for divorce in November 2011, according to TMZ, and it was finalized in January 2013.

It’s a big deal for Tiger, who has been lying low in his private life ever since his many affairs were revealed in 2009.
