Former world number one golfer Tiger Woods has announced that he and his 2-year-long girlfriend, Olympic skiing champion Lindsey Vonn, have called it a day due to their incompatible schedules. On Monday, he posted a message on his website: “Lindsey and I have mutually decided to stop dating. “I have great admiration, respect and love for Lindsey and I’ll always cherish our time together. She has been amazing with Sam and Charlie and my entire family. “Unfortunately, we lead very hectic lives and are both competing in demanding sports. It’s difficult to spend time together.”

Woods had divorced from Swedish Elin Nordegren in 2010 following the revelation of a series of extramarital affairs. The 30-year-old Vonn, too, updated her Facebook page, saying: “After nearly three years together, Tiger and I have mutually decided to end our relationship.

 “I will always cherish the memories that we’ve created together. Unfortunately, we both lead incredibly hectic lives that force us to spend a majority of our time apart. “He and his beautiful family will always hold a special place in my heart.”The couple were last seen together in public at last month’s Masters golf tournament, where Vonn was seen with Woods’s seven-year-old daughter Sam and six-year-old son Charlie.
