Former Olympic champions and Tiger Wood started dating back in 2013 after they met at a charity event in 2012. Wood’s ex-wife, Elin Nordegren, caught and confirmed her husband, Tiger Woods, in a cheating scandal with Lindsey. They were caught together in public on numerous occasions.
Over the years, they have maintained a healthy relationship by supporting each other. Vonn has been caught cheering for Wood at the August National Golf Club, while Tiger has also sent out positive and motivational messages to Vonn through his social media.
Tabloid attention and their split up
Tiger Woods is unarguably one of the most famous athletes in the world. It’s no surprise that his personal life is openly discussed in tabloids. But all this media attention and celebrity gossip have a negative impact on the actual people they document. It stands to reason that the same happened here as well, with both athletes eventually finding themselves unable to sustain the pressure.
Things were a lot different when they first announced their relationship. Soon after their official announcement, the couple was comfortable enough to have wood’s kids; Sam and Charlie, joined them on a yacht and went fishing. Vonn reportedly got along with the kids like they were her own. She even took them out to school or walked to the park or beach. It seemed like they had found the perfect match for each other.
However, by 2015 the power couple called their relationship to a dramatic end. Lindsey announced on her social media that it was a mutual decision, and it was hard to keep their romantic life in balance with their professional life. The 14-time major champion and Olympic champion parted ways with utter grace and respect for each other.
In a recent interview, Lindsey finally revealed what broke them apart. She mentioned that it was quite a challenge to keep a relationship in private when people constantly want a scoop of their relationship and all those nasty little details. This put her in a difficult position because she couldn’t focus her entire attention and time on Woods.
“Great terms” with Tiger
It has been seven years since their relationship, and Lindey announced that regardless of the past, they both remained on good terms and supported each other in their endeavors. Woods got into a terrible car accident in February 2021 after which Vonn mentioned her best wishes and prayers for her ex-partner.
After their breakup, Vonn was briefly involved with a hockey player, P.K. Subban for three years. She is now a highly esteemed skier champion with three Olympic medals, participation in four Winter Games all around America, and the face of the skier team of the USA. she announced her retirement in 2019 after winning a Bronze medal in a downhill skiing competition. Recently she released a book of her professional career and achievements along with her mental health issues.
