An unhappy golfer walks off the 18th green, hands his putter to his caddie and says, “Kid, you’ve got to be the worst caddie in the world.” The caddie replies, “Sir, that would be too much of a coincidence.”
So, Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn have called it quits. Hung up the old nine iron, so to speak. Woods is said to be in shambles, while Vonn seems to be shrugging it off like it’s not that big of a deal. That tells me that this relationship was over some time ago and they were simply waiting for the best opportunity to announce it.
Tiger, who is dealing with a lot right now, says he hasn’t slept in three days. His father died a year ago, March 3rd. They were very, very close and that, alone would be enough for most of us.
But on top of that, Woods finished the Masters tournament tied for 17th at five-under overall. He finished with a one-over 73 on the day and hit the fairway only twice from the tee.
Vonn, the American ski queen has avoided questions about her split from Woods and said she was firmly focused on reclaiming her Olympic downhill crown at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Games.
The gold medallist and the former world number one golfer had become the golden couple of American sports after meeting at a charity event in 2012.
Vonn is moving on, and quickly. She poked fun at Woods’ press conference. Woods gave a few friends hugs after ending his statement. Vonn said, “They’re like, ‘Yeah, you’re awesome, you go have that sex.’ ” The room breaks into a laugh. Then she said she wants to host Saturday Night Live: picture Vonn at Woods’ podium, blue backdrop and all. “There’s something you don’t know about me,” Vonn said, “Tiger, you’re like my idol, and I too have a sex problem.” More laughter. “That would be freaking funny.”
Far be it from me to judge anyone when it comes to relationships. I’ve been married four times and had other relationships that crashed and burned. But, you’d think Vonn would take it easy on the guy, instead of kicking him while he’s down.
I don’t think either one of them should receive special treatment. After all, they’re still married – to different people. I don’t know. Maybe Tiger did something we’re not aware of or Vonn is just mean spirited. It’s not for me to judge. I don’t have all of the facts.
See you tomorrow.
