Why Lindsey Vonn Says Relationship With Tiger Woods 'Didn't Work'
Huffington Post - 6 months
Maintaining a relationship is hard when you’re a pro athlete with a busy schedule. It’s even harder when the same is true for your boyfriend. Just ask Lindsey Vonn.  On Monday night’s episode of “Running Wild with Bear Grylls,” the champion skier gave some insight into why her three-year relationship with Tiger Woods came to an end in May 2015.  “I loved him so much and I still do, and it just didn’t work, you know,” she said. “It was too much with his competition schedule and mine and, you know, he has two kids.” (Woods has a son and daughter with ex-wife Elin Nordegren.)  “We’re still on good terms and we’re friends, but it was really hard,” Vonn added.  When discussing the end of the high-profile romance in the past, the 31-year-old Olympian has said it may have been poor timing right off the bat. Vonn split form husband Thomas Vonn in November 2011, after four years of marriage. “Jumping into a relationship right away after getting a divorce was probably not the ...

Lindsey Vonn Opens Up About Tiger Woods Split: 'I Don't Regret Anything'
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Until their split in May, Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods were one of the most talked-about couples in sports.  In a new interview with The New York Times, Vonn gives some insight into why the pair called it quits after three years. "Jumping into a relationship right away after getting a divorce was probably not the smartest move on my part," Vonn told the paper. (She and ex-husband Thomas Vonn split in November 2011 after four years of marriage.) “Thomas was really my first boyfriend, so I didn’t have a lot of dating experience,” she said.  Still, the ski star had nothing but good things to say about her relationship with Woods. “I don’t regret anything. I loved Tiger, and I had an amazing three years with him. But it was a learning experience as well. With every relationship, you learn what you need and what you want in a partner," she said. The pair confirmed that they were dating in his-and-hers Facebook posts in March 2013. Vonn used the same medium to announce th ...

Lindsey Vonn May Be Dating Tiger Woods, But She's Just Not That Into Golf
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
Lindsey Vonn may be dating Tiger Woods, but don't go calling her a golf fan. The Olympic skier stopped by "Late Night With Seth Meyers" on Tuesday night and gave a very unconvincing reply when pressed about her appreciation for Woods' profession. "Do you like watching golf?" Meyers asked Vonn, who's been dating the golfer for two years. "Is that something you did before [dating Tiger Woods?]” “I love golf," Vonn said after an elongated pause. Sensing the sarcasm, Meyers continued his interrogation: “It seems very different, as an adrenaline junkie, it seems very different.” “I just…I love golf,” Vonn said, before doing the math on how long a day on the green with Woods can last. "That's like, five hours." The 30-year-old Olympian has been a frequent presence at Woods' tournaments since they began dating in March 2013, a few months after her divorce from Thomas Vonn was finalized. Earlier this month, she brought Woods' two kiddos with his ex Elin Nordegren to visit ...

Lindsey Vonn Talks Divorce, Olympic Setbacks And Dating Tiger Woods
Huffington Post - about 3 years
It's been a tumultuous last few years for Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn, both on the slopes and in her personal life. In January 2013, the star athlete's divorce from husband and former coach, Thomas Vonn, was finalized. Then just last month, Vonn was forced to pull out of contention for the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, after re-injuring her right knee in December. That's enough to get anyone down, but in the February issue of "Self" magazine, the 29-year-old gold medalist says she's open to whatever challenges life throws at her. "What's the point in being afraid? I've crashed a million times," she tells the magazine. "If you go around being afraid, you're never going to enjoy life. You have only one chance, so you've got to have fun." She added: "Getting divorced was the scariest thing I've ever done. I'd been dating him since I was 18, and I realized I wasn't happy anymore. I wasn't sure if I was strong enough to be on my own, but I found out I am. Now I'm in charge of ...

Lindsey Vonn, Tiger Woods' Kids Bond At Golf Event
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Lindsey Vonn And Tiger Woods have gone on record saying that they won't be getting married, but that isn't stopping the Olympic skier from stepping into the role of unofficial stepmom to Woods' two kids. Vonn was spotted at The Tour Championship bonding with Woods' kids -- and it's pretty darn cute. Check out the video above to see what we mean. And although she won't be become the kids' real stepmom unless the pair change their minds and tie the knot, Vonn has compared their relationship to that of a husband and wife before. "We talk golf after his golf rounds, but mostly I listen. We really are normal in that way," she said. "Lots of people go home and talk to their wife or husband about their job. That’s what we do." Both have been divorced before; Vonn split from Thomas Vonn in 2011, after getting married in 2007. Woods and his ex-wife, Elin Nordegren, ended their marriage in 2010 after Woods' many infidelities came to light. Woods and Vonn announced their relationship thr ...

Lindsey Vonn Dishes On Marriage
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Lindsey Vonn has made it clear in the past that she does not intend to walk down the aisle again after her divorce from Thomas Vonn. And now, in a new interview with the Associated Press, she reiterated yet again that marriage is not in the cards for her. "I'm done with that. The box is checked," she said. "I don't really believe that you need to be married to someone to be their life partner." Vonn, who is currently dating Tiger Woods, did go on to say that she isn't ruling out having children and starting a family, though she would only do so once she feels ready to step away from skiing. "I want to make sure that I've done what I want to do in my sport. I don't want to leave skiing early," she said. "I want to feel like I've done everything I can do. So, we'll see." And although Vonn has made it clear that she won't be marrying Woods, she did compare their relationship to one between a husband and wife in an interview with The New York Times in June. “We talk ...

Vonn Nearing Return To Snow
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
VAIL, Colo. — For six months, Lindsey Vonn has thought about little else other than her reunion with skiing. She spent four hours a day in the gym trying to get her surgically repaired right knee healthy enough to step back into her ski boots. She spent even more hours sitting by a river bank with a fly-fishing rod in her hands, peacefully pondering what it would feel like to return. A thought she would quickly stifle – too painful with her knee still mending. "Because I feel like I'm claustrophobic when I'm not skiing," Vonn said in an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday. "I just want to go fast." And very soon, that will happen again. Vonn is way, way, way ahead of schedule in her return to the slopes. She wasn't supposed to be back on snow until around November. But she's planning to ski this weekend in Portillo, Chile. Nothing too aggressive, of course, just a few easy runs with the U.S. team to test out her knee. But later at the camp ...

Lindsey Vonn Swears Off Marriage
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
Lindsay Vonn and Tiger Woods' every move has been chronicled by the tabloids since they announced their relationship on Facebook in March 2013, but despite their seemingly fast-paced romance, Vonn recently told Vogue magazine that she's ruled out marriage for good. "I am definitely not getting married. To anyone," Vonn told the magazine. Part of that reluctance stems from her four-year marriage to former coach Thomas Vonn, whom she divorced in November 2011 and said she no longer speaks to. Vonn told the magazine that she has no plans to mix business and pleasure again: “Doesn’t work. I think there needs to be a certain kind of understanding because it’s very hard for me to relate to someone who doesn’t do sports at a high level. That part is necessary. But to have business in the relationship is very difficult," she said. "It definitely did not work for me, and I would not recommend it. I would also not recommend getting married!” But she insists she doesn't regr ...

Lindsay Vonn Opens Up About Relationship With Tiger Woods
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Lindsey Vonn has become tabloid fodder and the subject of negative online comments since announcing her relationship with Tiger Woods. But the Olympic skier, who split from husband and former coach Thomas Vonn in 2011, told the New York Times late last week that her experience with divorce taught her how to ignore the naysayers and focus on her own happiness. “I’m not an idiot; I try not to look, but I see what people say about me on Facebook,” Vonn said. “I see other things written. But I don’t care. I learned a while ago from my divorce that my happiness is the most important thing. That’s all I can control. And right now, I’m happy.” Perhaps some of Vonn's happiness can be credited to her blossoming relationship with Woods. The two confirmed that they were dating in March 2013, after media reports suggested the two were more than friends in January 2013. Vonn even compared their relationship to one between a husband and wife in the New York Times. “We talk g ...

Tiger Woods's Ex Mistress Questions If Lindsey Vonn Is His One And Only
Huffington Post Sports - almost 4 years
Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn's relationship announcement came as a surprise to at least one of the golfer's alleged ex-mistresses -- and she says there could be 15 other girls who were just as shocked. On Monday, Woods revealed he and Vonn are dating in a Facebook post, saying, "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."
