Lindsey Vonn says she's dating Tiger Woods

Talk about a couple of champions: Lindsey Vonn says she is dating Tiger Woods.

Olympic and World Cup champion ski racer Vonn says in a posting on her Facebook page Monday that their "relationship evolved from a friendship into something more over these past few months and it has made me very happy."

Lewis Kay, a spokesman for the Minnesota-born skier, confirmed the validity of the post to The Associated Press.

Woods posted this on his Facebook page: "This season has been great so far and I'm happy with my wins at Torrey and Doral. Something nice that's happened off the course was meeting Lindsey Vonn. 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. We want to continue our relationship, privately, as an ordinary couple and continue to compete as athletes."

Vonn is recovering from right knee surgery after a Feb. 5 crash that ended her season. Her divorce from Thomas Vonn after more than four years of marriage became official in January. They separated in 2011.

Elin Nordegren divorced Woods in 2010 after learning he had a string of affairs during their five-year marriage. They share custody of their two children.
