Tiger Woods may or may not be dating Lindsay Vonn.
The news that the high profile sports stars have decided to hook up has been making the rounds over the past week. The rumors emerged last week after Hollywoodlife.com reported that the two had been seeing each other since November thanks to a mutual love of skiing.
"They met through the ski community, because Tiger is an active skier," a source tells the website. "Lindsey has been teaching Tiger's kids Sam and Charlie how to ski."
According to reports, the new couple haven't had much time to spend together due to their work schedules, but have have been spending the time growing closer over the telephone and a visit or two. For his part the famed golfer, who famously was ditched by his former wife Elin Nordegren after she discovered that he cheated with numerous women, has decided to ignore the rumors.
On the other hand, Vonn has issued a statement that neither confirms nor denies any romantic connection. Her reps say, "Lindsey is currently in the midst of the World Cup season in Europe. Her focus is solely on competing and on defending her titles and thus she will not participate in any speculation surrounding her personal life at this time."
Who else has the gold medalist been romantically linked to?
Thomas Vonn: It was love on the slopes for the three-time Olympian and her future husband when they met during the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics. He would go on to replace her father, Alan Kildow, as her coach. The two seemed like they were headed for a happy ending when they took their love off the hills and headed down the aisle in 2007. Unfortunately, the love didn't last and they filed for divorce four years later.
Tim Tebow: The gold medalist laughed off rumors that she was romantically involved with the New York Jets quarterback earlier this year. The rumors swirled after the skiing superstar made the trademark Tebow move after her World Cup victory in December 2011. It all started after Vonn, who is friends with the NFL quarterback's brother Robby Tebow, if she could borrow his famed move if she won. The response was a worldwide cry for a love match between the beautiful blonde and the NFL star. Unfortunately, it seems that there was no love in the cards for the duo and both have gone on to have new romantic connections.
