Though the couple might not be back together (though Lindsey Vonn confirmed they are texting regularly again), both Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn are back in the news this weekend.
Tiger Woods is making news because he is back in contention for a PGA title for the first time in two years, and Lindsey Vonn because she is speaking out on the chosen location for the 2022 winter games.

Yesterday, Tiger Woods shot a 66 at the Quicken Loans National to soar up the leaderboard, one shot back of leader Ollie Schniederjans. CBS Sports is calling the showing “vintage Tiger Woods.”
“As I said, I have been through this before and you make changes to the game, it takes a little time sometimes and got to be patient with it and I know what I’m doing out there,” said Woods. “It’s just a matter of time before things start to click in and get more jelled and things that — the new patterns become more natural.”
“It doesn’t feel unusual. So, it’s obviously been awhile since then. Obviously I don’t know how many months it is. I’m in a good spot. I’m looking forward to the weekend. I’m looking forward to getting after it.”
Tiger Woods is juggling many things right now. According to plan, Tiger is scheduled to launch a high-end restaurant this month in Jupiter, Florida.
“I envision a place where people can meet friends, watch sports on TV and enjoy a great meal,” Woods said in a statement. “I wanted to build it locally where I live and where it could help support the community.”

While Tiger Woods is shooting a round of golf in Virginia, Lindsey Vonn is training on the slopes of a summer snow camp in New Zealand. Yesterday, Lindsey spoke to the press about her thoughts of the Winter Olympics 2022 in Beijing, China.
“I think it needs to be put in cities that are, that it’s still relevant in,” Vonn said at Roundhill ski field near Lake Tekapo – where she is training. “I mean you have it in Europe or you have it in the United States.”

“I mean the Olympics are a really big deal and when you have it, you know where it’s awkward for timezones and for television, it’s just not that exciting,” the 2010 Olympic downhill champion said on Friday. “But I think you can make it exciting if you’re smarter about where you host the Olympics.”
