Earlier this week they released photos and their own respective statements regarding their budding romance, and Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn decided to do so for a specific reason.
During his press conference yesterday, the golf pro explained that the public declaration took all the wind out of the tabloids proverbial sails.
We basically devalued the first [paparazzi] photos. We felt like it was the best thing to do. Were very happy about it.
On Monday, Lindsey wrote on Facebook, “I guess it wasn”t a well-kept secret but yes, I am dating Tiger Woods. Our relationship evolved from a friendship into something more over these past few months and it has made me very happy.”
Tiger added, “Lindsey and I have been friends for some time, but over the last few months we have become very close and are now dating. We thank you for your support and for respecting our privacy.”
