(Newser) – Why anyone would enter into a relationship with Tiger Woods after this is a mystery to us, and yet: Sources tell Star skier Lindsey Vonn has done just that, according to the New York Daily News and the New York Post. They've apparently been together since November, with Tiger visiting the Olympian in Austria while she was racing, then taking her to Antigua. According to a Hollywood Life source, "They met through the ski community, because Tiger is an active skier," and Vonn has been teaching his kids how to ski.

It's the first serious relationship for Tiger, 37, since his divorce from Elin Nordegren (who, the Daily News notes, looks a bit like Vonn). As for the 28-year-old Vonn, she was just divorced from her husband of six years, Thomas, this month. For some reason most of us probably wouldn't comprehend, Tiger "wants to marry again," a source explains. He "thinks Lindsey could be the woman." But "it took Lindsey a while to trust him because of his past," says a source, and her friends are reportedly concerned.
