“Essentially Being in a Fish Bowl”: Lindsey Vonn Once Described the Reality of Her Relationship With Pro Golfer Tiger Woods

Relationships between celebrities often sour out due to external issues, like schedules or paparazzi pressure. But, for the Alpine Skiing queen, Lindsey Vonn, things were not as simple. Although Vonn is an elite athlete, it seems the territory was a bit too much to tackle for her.

Lindsey Vonn and her golfer boyfriend Tiger Woods may have dated, but they were one of the power couples in the sports industry. The duo became official in 2012 and dated until 2015 before announcing a mutual separation. This honestly came as a shock because to fans, the couple was made for each other. Even Vonn herself would speak often about all the lessons she’d learned from Woods.

But the actual truth between Vonn and Woods was spilled out by the Olympian herself. In a 2016 article, she detailed what it actually felt like to date the greatest golfer of all time. And, the reality is far from roses and rainbows.

In a HuffPost, the then 31-year-old skier spoke all about her relationship with her ex, Tiger Woods. According to her, the decision to split was quite hard for both of them.

Lindsey was far from being comfortable due to all that unwanted spotlight on her. Speaking about it Vonn said, “It was essentially being in a fish bowl. Everyone’s looking at you and judging you and commenting on what they think is right or wrong.”
