It's official: After months of rumors, golf star Tiger Woods and Olympic skiier Lindsey Vonn confirmed Monday that they are indeed dating.

"Something nice that's happened off the course was meeting Lindsey Vonn," Woods, 37, posted on his official website yesterday, along with a handful of lovey-dovey photos of the pair. "Lindsey and I have been friends for some time, but over the last few months we hvave become very close and are now dating."

Twenty-eight-year-old Vonn, who is recovering from a February injury and subsequent knee surgery, also confirmed the news via Facebook, writing: "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."

Wood's last high-profile romance with a beautiful blonde wasn't so hunky-dory: In 2009, he and wife Elin Nordegrand split in scandal after he admitted to having affairs with multiple women.
