Lindsey Vonn has been extremely visible at most of the golf tournaments Tiger Woods has played in over the past year or so. Now that it is her turn to compete in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, one would assume Tiger will return the favor and be there to support his better half. That is apparently not the case, and it could be leading to tension.
According to the National Enquirer, Woods and Vonn are “at odds” because Tiger intends to play in multiple golf tournaments while Lindsey is competing in Russia. Vonn recently joked that she is unsure if Woods would be flying to Russia because he doesn’t like the cold, but she is reportedly angry behind closed doors.
“Lindsey is demanding to be considered an equal, but she thinks Tiger still sees her only as a pretty accessory and doesn’t take her skiing career seriously,” a source reportedly told the Enquirer. “Lindsey told Tiger, ‘I supported you this season. Now, it’s your turn to support me in public. I’m not just your cheerleader — I’m a world class athlete too!’”

The source also claimed that the arguments between the two have been “very nasty.”
While we have no way of knowing if the report is true, it is worth noting that Vonn has expressed frustration in the past over being viewed as simply Tiger’s girlfriend. She has her own athletic career and clearly wants people to acknowledge that. Time will tell if one of those people happens to be her boyfriend.
