‘She’s a good influence on him’: Lindsey Vonn cheers on boyfriend Tiger Woods at the British Open… as ex Elin Nordegren ‘approves of their relationship’
By Bianca Carneiro Daily Mail PUBLISHED:19 July 2013
Their relationship has been getting hotter since they started dating last year.
And what better way to cool down than a cup of ice cream?
Olympic skier Linsey Vonn was spotted enjoying a frosty treat as she kept an eye on boyfriend Tiger Woods along the greens of the British Open in Scotland on Friday.
The 28-year-old munched on her sweets as she traversed the field on the unseasonably warm day, flashing her pearly whites as she peered along the sidelines at her love — who after day one was ranked atop the leader list in 3rd place.
The gold medal winner dressed in a blue vest top and white shorts, her blonde hair pulled back in a loose pony tail.
Tiger and Lindsey started out as friends after a chance meeting at a charity event in 2012 but their relationship soon turned romantic after the busy duo started corresponding via phone calls and texts.
‘We talked a lot, corresponded a lot, and he was a good friend who was always there. And then it became more,’ Lindsey told Vogue. ‘It’s amazing. Life changes very quickly, in a very positive way, if you let it.’
Their seemingly strong relationship comes after years of romantic struggles for the golfer, who divorced wife Elin Nordegren in 2010 after a highly public cheating scandal.
Later, Tiger would be tied to nearly a dozen women who claimed to have intimate moments with the sports star, and ultimately took a break from the game as he was dropped by sponsors.
Despite the nasty split, the Swedish beauty seems to be turning a new leaf.
Sources tell the New York Post that the former model — who has two children with Tiger — has given her approval, saying that her ex ‘seems happy with Lindsey, and she gets on well with the children.’

When it comes to Tiger’s past indiscretions, Lindsey no doubt knew what she was in for.
She says that she easily overcomes the media scrutiny by simply being ‘happy’ in her relationship with the famed golfer.
‘Tiger’s fame is obviously in the extreme, the amount of scrutiny that he’s constantly under,’ she says.
‘But that’s the thing: It all comes back to being happy. It doesn’t really matter what anyone else thinks; do what you love to do and be happy and that’s it.’
The pro skier has also had a rocky past, having divorced her skiing coach Thomas Vonn in 2012.
‘I am definitely not getting married — to anyone,’ she told Vogue magazine this month.
‘It’s very hard for me to relate to someone who doesn’t do sports at a high level. That part is necessary. But to have business in the relationship is very difficult. It definitely did not work for me, and I would not recommend it. I would also not recommend getting married
