Tiger Woods, Lindsey Vonn confirm they are dating on Facebook

March 18, 2013|By Chuck Schilken

Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn are dating!

All right, so we pretty much already knew that. But now the 14-time PGA major tournament champion and six-time reigning World Cup women's downhill skiing champ have decided it's OK with them that we know.

The two of them simultaneously (how romantic!) posted similarly worded (so cute!) announcements regarding their relationship on their respective Facebook accounts Monday morning.

I guess this means we can officially break out the "Liger" nickname!

Woods' post: "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."

Vonn's 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"

Woods even goes as far as to post four photos of the happy couple (ah, it feels so good to finally be able to say that!).

Now I know they want us to respect their privacy, but I also realize it's hard to contain the overwhelming joy you are feeling at this moment. So feel free to express yourself right here in our comments section. We promise not to tell Liger!
