TIGER Woods has confirmed he is dating alpine ski racer Lindsey Vonn.
In a post on his website, Woods shared pictures of the couple and said he was happy.
"This season has been great so far and I'm happy with my wins at Torrey and Doral," Woods wrote.
"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."
Vonn also made a post on her Facebook page confirming the relationship.
"I guess it wasn't a well-kept secret but yes, I am dating Tiger Woods," she wrote.
"Our relationship evolved from a friendship into something more over these past few months and it has made me very happy.
