Minnesota native and Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods confirmed the gossip Monday: They are dating.

The superstar athletes posted photos of themselves on Woods' Facebook page. They also asked for privacy, hoping to pursue the relationship "as an ordinary couple."

Vonn tweeted:

Here's what they put on Facebook: "This season has been great so far and I'm happy with my wins at Torrey and Doral. Something nice that's happened off the course was meeting Lindsey Vonn. Lindsey and I have been friends for some time, but over the last few months we have become very close and are now dating. We thank you for your support and for respecting our privacy. We want to continue our relationship, privately, as an ordinary couple and continue to compete as athletes."

Vonn divorced her husband Thomas Vonn in 2011. She recently told People magazine she has long battled depression. A season-ending knee injury didn’t stop St. Paul native Vonn from winning her sixth consecutive World Cup downhill championship earlier this month.

Tabloids at one point reported that golf star Woods was trying to reconcile with his ex-wife, Elin Nordegren. The two divorced in 2009 amid reports that he had affairs with a number of women.
