The rumor mill started churning in November about Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn, and it just revved up again after Woods made a stop in Salzburg, Austria, on the way to the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship.
In November, Woods was in Vail at the same time as Vonn, but she denied that they were seeing each other. “We are just friends,” she told the Denver Post. “My brother was the ski instructor for his kids this November in Vail. Guessing that’s where it came from.”
Now the Salzburg News is reporting that Woods made a quick stop in Salzburg, landing his private jet Sunday and leaving Monday. Vonn was in Salzburg at the same time for a TV interview, according to the article. The paper also ran photos of Woods in a Yankees cap (above).
Vonn, a 28-year-old champion skier and Olympic gold medalist, has just gone through a divorce. Vonn made Tiger-related headlines back in 2010 on the day of his nationally televised public apology. Here's what she said, as reported by Time.com:
And like millions of Americans, Vonn can't help poking fun at Woods' staged event. When a member of her Vonn-tourage tells her that Woods gave a few friends hugs after ending his statement, she cracks, "They're like, 'Yeah, you're awesome, you go have that sex.' " The room breaks into a laugh. Then she describes a skit she would want to perform if asked to host Saturday Night Live: picture Vonn at Woods' podium, blue backdrop and all. "There's something you don't know about me," Vonn says in a faux solemn, apologetic voice. "Tiger, you're like my idol, and I too have a sex problem." More laughter. "That would be freaking funny."
