On March 18, 2013, Tiger Woods posted that he is now dating Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn in a message to fans on his Facebook page along with several pictures of the couple. Vonn also confirmed the relationship on her Facebook page. The Daily Mail (UK) reported the previous week that Woods and Vonn spent the weekend of the WGC-Cadillac Championship on Woods's yacht at a Miami-area marina. Celebrity tabloids have linked the pair since since they were both in Vail in November. Vonn tore her ACL and MCL and had small fractures of her femur and tibia in a terrible crash at the Alpine world championships in Austria on Feb. 5. She is rehabbing to compete in the Winter Olympics next year. Both Woods, 37, and Vonn, 28, are divorced.
