Tiger has confirmed he is dating skiing star 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," Tiger said on his Facebook page.

"We thank you for your support and for respecting our privacy," his statement went on to say. "We want to continue our relationship,privately,as an ordinary couple and continue to compete as athletes."

Vonn also posted the news on  Facebook ," I guess it wasn't a well kept secret but yes I am dating Tiger Woods."

Rumors of the incident first began to fly when Vonn was suffered a skiing-related injury on Feb. 5  Alpine Ski World Championships.  Woods sent his private jet to fly her back home, fueling speculation that the pair had grown close since meeting at a charity event last April.
