Lindsey Vonn’s ex has some harsh words for her new boyfriend.
When Tiger Woods was caught in a violation during the Masters, an sharp-eyed television viewer phoned the PGA to turn him in. As a result, Woods was penalized two strokes and dealt a blow in the golf major.
It led to criticism that Woods would (at least appear to) knowingly bend the rules, especially under the scrutiny of a nationwide audience.
Thomas Vonn just thought it was funny. The ex-husband of Olympic skiier Lindsey Vonn, he took it as an opportunity to poke fun at Tiger and his past of bending the rules. During the golf major he sent out a tweet making fun of Tiger.
Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn have been linked together since late 2012, but just confirmed their relationship earlier this year. Earlier this week Vonn was seen waiting for a table on the Augusta National Golf Club veranda as Tiger took some warm-up swings before his first round began.
Vonn was there to cheer on her boyfriend, but her recently reconstructed right knee would keep her from actually watching Tiger Woods play the course at the Masters. Vonn said she planned to watch the first hole but stay in the clubhouse after that.
“I can’t really walk too much,” Vonn said. “And it’s so hilly here.”
Vonn is still recovering after tearing two ligaments in her right knee in a ski crash in February. She had surgery two weeks after the injury, and said she aims to be back for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.
It was a rare public appearance for Vonn and Woods, who have been very quite about their relationship. Vonn even made a note of this when she made the relationship official.
“I don’t plan on addressing this further as I would like to keep that part of my life between us, my family and close friends,” the 28-year-old Vonn wrote in her post. “Thank you for understanding and your continued support! xo LV”
It seems like Thomas Vonn isn’t taking the relationship too well, joking that it was him to turned in Tiger for the violation.
No problem Masters tournament happy to call in and help. You always have to keep an eye on those cheaters ;)yhoo.it/Zh7TBu

Thomas Vonn was likely satisfied with the result of the Masters. Tiger Woods finished fourth, four shots behind winner Adam Scott.
