Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn are no longer together. Woods and Vonn both issued similar statements today confirming the end of their three-year relationship.
“Lindsey and I have mutually decided to stop dating,” said Woods on his website. “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 shared the news on Facebook.
“After nearly three years together, Tiger and I have mutually decided to end our relationship,” Vonn said.
“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.”
Vonn, 30, and Woods, 39, made their relationship public in March 2013. Vonn appeared at the Masters with Woods and his children, Sam and Charlie, including during his first appearance in the Masters Par-3 Contest in 11 years.
Woods finished T-17 at the Masters and has announced a full summer schedule, including next week’s Players Championship, which he won the last time he played in the event in 2013. [myad]
