Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn reportedly are in a romantic relationship, and things are said to be heating up between them.
Vonn tore two ligaments in her knee during a crash at the Alpine World Championships in Austria last week. Woods reportedly sent his private plane to pick her up and bring her back to the US where she had surgery.
Now, a source tells People Magazine that the two have been getting “closer and closer.”
“Tiger and Lindsey have been friends for a while, and nothing started out romantically at all,” a source told the magazine. “But they really have a lot in common and got closer and closer. He still refers to her as ‘my very good friend,’ but he’s been spending more and more time talking to her – and talking about her.”
Vonn recently divorced her ex-husband, who was also her skiing coach. Woods divorced ex-wife Elin in 2010 after it was revealed he was having sexual relationships with multiple women while married.
The source told People that the two are able to relate to each other well.
“Tiger really does want a woman who he can have good conversations with,” he says. “He wants shared interests and outlooks. He is finding that with [Lindsey].
“She’s not freaked out by his past, and that’s really appealing to him,” says the source. “He really does deserve to be happy. He has been flogging himself for three years, and it’s good to see him moving forward.”
Rumors about the two dating have been floating since November. Vonn’s publicist issued the following statement when asked about the rumored relationship last month:
“Lindsey is currently in the midst of the World Cup season in Europe. Her focus is solely on competing and on defending her titles and thus she will not participate in any speculation surrounding her personal life at this time.”
