Three years ago he hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons as a string of affairs were revealed, but it appears that disgraced golf star Tiger Woods may have been tamed by new love, champion skier Lindsey Vonn.
Shockwaves were sent through the sporting world in December 2009 when it was revealed that Tiger had cheated on his wife Elin Nordegren with a string of women
The blonde beauty, Vonn, was reportedly wary of getting involved with the golfing star because of his past, but it appears that Tiger has pulled out all the stops to prove he has learnt from his mistakes.
The world’s most notorious womanizer Tiger Woods has begun his first serious relationship since his marriage to Elin Nordegren ended in 2010. The Masters winner has been dating Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn since November, and he is so crazy about her that he took her on a romantic trip to Antigua, reports the Hollywood Life.
“He wants to marry again and thinks Lindsey could be the woman,” a source close to the 37-year-old philanderer shared the information.
The pro golfer was also spotted earlier this month watching the blonde beauty in a World Cup Ski tournament.
“They met through the ski community, because Tiger is an active skier,” a source close to Lindsey reveals. “Lindsey has been teaching Tiger’s kids Sam and Charlie how to ski.”
It must be serious if she has met his kids! The pair is currently busy with their respective sports careers, but they are trying to make time for each other and their budding romance.
As the Daily Mail reports, Tiger’s form has improved since he has been seeing the champion skier: after dropping out of the top 50 in 2011, his ranking is now back up to No. 2.
Lindsey was once married to fellow Olympian and professional skier Thomas Vonn in 2007. They finalised their divorce this month after four years of marriage.
Lindsey is an accomplished sportswoman, she is one of only six women to have won World Cup races in all five disciplines of alpine skiing and has won 58 World Cup races in her career, and has won four overall World Cup championships – one of only two female skiers to do so.
The skiing superstar is also renowned for her beauty, appearing in Sports Illustrated’s Olympic Swimsuit Edition in 2010, and making No. 59 on Maxim’s Hot 100 list of the same year.
Tiger was married to Swedish supermodel Elin Nordegren for five years before a highly-publicised cheating scandal in December 2009 lost him his marriage and affected his career.
Elin, 32, won a $110 million divorce settlement from the shamed sportsman after he admitted his affairs, and has been concentrating on creating her dream home, rebuilding a $12 million North Palm Beach estate in Florida.
Since their divorce, Elin has dated several men, including wealthy financier Jamie Dingman and professional hockey player Douglas Murray, to whom she was first romantically linked in July 2012.
Lindsey’s friends are concerned that the golfer will go back to his old womanising ways, but for now it seems that this Tiger has been tamed.
