Tiger Woods divorced model wife Elin Nordegren back in 2010, sparking a media circus that still hangs over the golf legend.

Now it appears he’s dating another famous woman.

Rumors have been circulating that Woods is seeing world famous skier Lindsey Vonn. Reports come out this week from multiple tabloids that the two are a couple.

Both athletes were involved in highly publicized divorces, before becoming single again. Vonn separated from her husband and former coach, Thomas Vonn, in 2011. Their divorce became official shortly after the New Year.

Woods’s divorce was one of the biggest scandals to rock the sports world in recent memory. In late 2009, details emerged of Nordegren discovering the Woods's extramarital affairs. Over the next few weeks, several women came forward, claiming to have had a relationship with Woods, while he was still married.

With news of Woods and Vonn’s relationship surfacing, the gold medal winner has released a statement, regarding the reports.  

"Lindsey is currently in the midst of the World Cup season in Europe," read the statement published by USA Today, which was issued by publicist Lewis Kay. "Her focus is solely on competing and on defending her titles and thus she will not participate in any speculation surrounding her personal life at this time."

Woods has not made a statement of his own. He is currently participating in the Farmer Insurance Open in San Diego.

If the rumors are true, this would be Woods’s first serious relationship that has been reported since his high-profile divorce. According to HollywoodLife.com, the two have been dating for two months.

Both Vonn and Woods may be the greatest athletes in the history of their respective sports.

Woods, 37, has won 14 major tournaments, and is second all-time with 74 career wins on the PGA Tour. Vonn, 28, is one of only two female skiers to win four World Cup championships.

Below are some pictures of Woods's famous girlfriend.
