Talk about a couple of champions: Lindsey Vonn is dating Tiger Woods.

Olympic and World Cup champion ski racer Vonn says in a posting on her Facebook page Monday that their "relationship evolved from a friendship into something more over these past few months and it has made me very happy."

Likewise, on his page, Woods wrote, " 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."

His post is accompanied by pictures of the couple.
