Lindsey Vonn says she isn’t sure if Tiger Woods’ schedule will ever free up enough for him to watch her ski now that her knee is repaired and she’s ready to hit the slopes again.

HOW THEY GOT HERE

Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn made headlines in March when they announced they were a couple. See how love bloomed.

But she may want to look into goading him into a race or two, if she’s having as much trouble beating him in head-to-head games as she says. Vonn sounded chipper while talking with USA Today about her return to competitive skiing this week, but she did reveal that, in her relationship with Woods, the competitive Olympic skier is often bested by the competitive world-class golfer.

“We’re really competitive with everything,” she said. “Ping pong, tennis and whatever. I usually lose, which is really depressing.”

There is one child’s game where she still has the edge, though. “The hand-slapping game,” she said. “I’ve got better reflexes and better balance.”

She said Woods is hoping to make it to some of her events now that her lengthy knee rehab is over, but it’s a logistical challenge. “We’re trying to figure it out,” Vonn said. “But he definitely wants to be there. … He plays pretty much the entire year.”

Vonn had similar remarks for a People article published Thursday, when she was asked whether Woods would make it to the Winter Olympics.

“We’re going to see how his schedule goes, but he’s hoping to come,” she says. “He’s kind of a fish out of water in the cold weather. It’s going to be really cute!”

Vonn also noted in that article that Woods doesn’t have any habits that irritate her, noting that “he doesn’t even leave the seat up.”

It looks like Vonn has the upper hand in that one, too.
