If it's not official until it's on Facebook, Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods are now officially a couple as of Monday morning.
After weeks of speculation, the Vail-based skier and the champion golfer took to their respective Facebook pages and announced that they were dating. The couple also released a professionally-shot photo album showcasing photos of the pair together.
Vonn wrote on her Facebook page:
I guess it wasn't a well-kept secret but yes, I am dating Tiger Woods. Our relationship evolved from a friendship into something more over these past few months and it has made me very happy. I don't plan on addressing this further as I would like to keep that part of my life between us, my family and close friends. Thank you for understanding and your continued support! xo LV
Woods' Facebook post:
This season has been great so far and I'm happy with my wins at Torrey and Doral. Something nice that's happened off the course was meeting 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. We thank you for your support and for respecting our privacy. We want to continue our relationship, privately, as an ordinary couple and continue to compete as athletes.
Both also sent out tweets confirming the relationship.
