The world’s most famous golfer, Tiger Woods, and America’s most famous skier, Lindsey Vonn, decided to call it quits and announced their breakup on Sunday.
In a personal message from Tiger Woods, 39, on his official website, he stated:
“Lindsey and I have mutually decided to stop dating. I have great admiration, respect and love for Lindsey and I’ll always cherish our time together. She has been amazing with Sam and Charlie and my entire family.
“Unfortunately, we lead very hectic lives and are both competing in demanding sports. It’s difficult to spend time together.”
Vonn, 34, posted a very similar message on her Facebook account:
“After nearly three years together, Tiger and I have mutually decided to end our relationship. I will always cherish the memories that we’ve created together. Unfortunately, we both lead incredibly hectic lives that force us to spend a majority of our time apart. I will always admire and respect Tiger. He and his beautiful family will always hold a special place in my heart.”
The former couple were seen together last month at the Masters Tournament in Augusta, Georgia, where Woods placed seventeenth after being off for three months to rehab his back and sharpen his game. The alpine skiing phenom was seen on the course with Woods’s son, Charlie, and daughter, Sam.
Breitbart News reported in April that Vonn expressed that she enjoyed being with Tiger and his children and felt “privileged to be along for the ride. They’re great kids — I love ’em.”
