Woods, Vonn use social media to confirm relationship

After months of speculation, Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn made their relationship official on March 18 the way any other 21st-century couple would: They took to Facebook and Twitter.

A tweet from Woods’ account (@TigerWoods) on Tuesday read, “Just posted some pictures of @Lindseyvonn and me on Facebook” and featured a link to Woods’ Facebook page. Four photos of the couple were posted there, along with the following message:

“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.”
