Lindsey Vonn has been released from a Vail, Colo., hospital after undergoing testing and treatment for intestinal pain. Vonn's spokesman, Lewis Kay, wrote in an email to the Associated Press that the four-time World Cup ski champion was "resting comfortably at home" and that she's "feeling much better" after an overnight stay in the hospital. Kay said it is unclear when Vonn "will be able to return to the mountain” as she prepares for a World Cup event in Aspen on Nov. 24. There has been concern in Vonn's camp regarding her ailment, the cause of which doctors have been unable to determine, according to Kay. Vonn's ski technician, Heinz Haemmerle, said Vonn's recent trip to the hospital was not her first in recent weeks.

It appears skier Lindsey Vonn and golfer Tiger Woods are getting serious about their romance, with the two spending more and more time together in recent weeks. Earlier this week, Woods let Vonn use his private jet to return to her home after she suffered a knee injury during the world ski championship in Austria, which many took as the first public sign of their relationship. After all, you don't usually lend your private jet to just anyone. I certainly don't. Now, according to Us magazine, Vonn and Woods have met each other's families and Vonn gave Woods' kids a ski lesson as they spent Valentine's Day together.

Tiger Woods has been the butt of many jokes since his marital meltdown in 2009, and new girlfriend Lindsey Vonn's ex-husband, Thomas Vonn, has joined the chorus of would-be comedians. Woods came under scrutiny on Friday night after he took a questionable drop following his watery approach at No. 15 during the second round of the Masters tournament. His original shot struck the flagstick on the fly and drew back into Rae's Creek in front of the green. It seems Masters officials took some phone calls from television viewers who called out Tiger for taking his drop from behind his original spot when he determined the designated drop zone was less than desirable.

How good is Lindsey Vonn? She wins titles even when sidelined by a serious knee injury. Vonn won her sixth straight World Cup downhill title after Wednesday's race in Lenzerheide, Switzerland, was canceled because of fog. The cancellation allowed Vonn to win the title by one point over Tina Maze of Slovenia. "Omg I won the World Cup Downhill title!!!!! 6 in a row with a bum knee! Everything in life comes back around" Vonn tweeted after the race was canceled. Vonn's downhill trophy gives her a World Cup record 17th title, surpassing Austrian great Annemarie Moser-Proell.

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!

A request by American women's skiing star Lindsey Vonn to compete in a men's World Cup downhill race has been rejected by the sport's governing body. The International Skiing Federation council met Saturday in Oberhofen, Switzerland, and ruled that women are not entitled to compete against men, and vice-versa, during World Cup events. "It's very clear," said Sarah Lewis, FIS secretary general, in an interview with the Associated Press. "It's called the men's World Cup and the ladies' World Cup. The men race the men's World Cup and the ladies race the ladies' World Cup. FIS and World Cup points are not transferable from one circuit to another.
