Tiger Woods is working on turning his life – and image – around by hooking up with a popular athlete, as the PGA Tour star is reportedly dating U.S. Olympic skier, Lindsey Vonn.
The duo has been a pair for a couple of months now, as Woods is also an avid ski enthusiast. He is also rather fond of blondes, making this a perfect match.
Both Woods and Vonn went through fairly high profile divorces, although Woods came across much worse than Vonn. As for the rumors that Woods was attempting to get together with his former wife, Elin Nordegren, I would say it is safe to say we can forget about that ever happening.
Not that it had much of a chance even before news of Woods’ newest romance broke.
Woods reportedly traveled to Austria to watch Vonn at a skiing even, and then later flew her to Antigua for a romantic getaway prior to beginning the 2013 PGA Tour season. Woods split from his wife in 2009 after it was revealed that he had been unfaithful for years, cheating on her with upawards of 20 different women over the course of their marriage. Vonn finalized her divorce just this past month.
While many may just see this as a rebound for both, sources close to the controversial and womanizing Woods say that he is quite serious about Vonn, which is at least a bit funny, considering she poked fun at him a couple of years back for his apologetic press conference that fooled nobody after his separation.
To each their own, I suppose. Forgive and forget. Although, Vonn’s friends are a bit leery of Woods’ past, and feel she could be setting herself up for heartbreak.
And perhaps a few sexually transmitted diseases as well.
My advice to Miss Vonn? Spend time with Tiger at your own risk. Just make sure to wear all of that big, bulky, protective ski gear into bed.
What? You never know.
