The sports and gossip rumor mills are churning regarding Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods dating after her rep said in a statement that ... she has no comment.
"Lindsey is currently in the midst of the World Cup season in Europe," the rep said.
"Her focus is solely on competing and on defending her titles and thus she will not participate in any speculation surrounding her personal life at this time."
Not exactly a "they are not dating" denial, was it?
Whether or not Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn are officially an item, the skier's celebrity star power may have just gotten a bit brighter. Or a lot brighter.
The bombshell blond is a skiing staple in the sports world, but any sort of link to Tiger would propel her to the most-watched rungs of the Hollywood totem pole.
Even before Woods' serial cheating was exposed in late 2009 in one of the biggest celebrity scandals of all time, he was hugely, widely, enormously famous.
"Unless she's been living under a rock, she probably knows about his track record," says one celebrity news magazine editor of Vonn and Tiger's past.
"Anyone that is linked to him now is probably going to suffer in some way because of that. This could make her a household name, for better or worse."
Lindsey Vonn isn't totally obscure, winning gold at the 2010 Winter Olympics, and also being briefly linked to Tim Tebow at the height of his fame in 2011.
A serious relationship with Woods would trump all of that, though, especially given how his marriage to Elin Nordegren imploded after that infamous crash.
"I think people are always going to care about Tiger Woods," says another gossip publication. "But I would be surprised if he got into a long-term relationship."
"He's been really focusing on his golf and winning back fans and sponsors."
If the rumors are true, do you think they'd make a good couple?
