It may not seem the likeliest of pairings, but Tiger Woods’ ex-wife Elin Nordegren and current flame Lindsey Vonn have apparently become close friends, according to an US Weekly report

Woods’ former wife, 34, reportedly approached the 29-year-old Olympic alpine skier because she knew Vonn would be around Nordegren and Woods’ two young children, the article stated. 

"After meeting her, she found she actually liked her," a source told US Weekly. "Elin likes that Lindsey is a strong woman." 

Nordegren split with Woods in 2010 amid news of the golfer’s serial infidelity.


Woods and Vonn went public with their relationship in 2013, and the Olympic gold medalist has been seen palling around with Woods’ kids at Tiger’s golfing events ever since.
