Lindsey Vonn on Tiger Woods: ‘I Still Love Him’

June 30, 2016

Lindsey Vonn is probably tired of talking about Tiger Woods. Their relationship may have ended in 2015, but people are still fascinated by the famous pair. In an interview for Access Hollywood yesterday, Vonn was pressed about her relationship with Woods.

Vonn said that she and Tiger are still friends and keep in touch. “I still love him. He’s a great guy and he’s a great father. I have the utmost respect for him. I just wish him the best. We’re friends,” she said.

Co-host Donald Faison especially wanted to know more about “toothgate,” the January 2015 incident when Tiger Woods appeared at one of Vonn’s skiing races with a missing front tooth. “What’s up with the tooth?” Faison asked. Vonn repeated the details that Woods himself has given about what happened, saying that a cameraman turned into Woods, knocking his tooth out.

Faison was impressed with Tiger’s fortitude in the face of unexpected dental pain. “Strong dude,” he said.
