Tiger Woods will be on the slopes to watch girlfriend Lindsey Vonn for at least one of her World Cup races at the World Championships next month in Colorado.
Vonn, who won a record-tying 62nd women's World Cup race in Italy on Sunday, said afterward the 14-time major winner is going to make it work.
”It’s tough to have two athletes competing at the same time, but he’s definitely going to make something work,” she said.
The races take place from Feb. 2-15 in Vail and Beaver Creek, with Vonn set to race in two events: the super-G on Feb. 3 and the downhill on Feb. 6. She may also race in the super combined (Feb. 9), the team event (Feb. 10) and giant slalom (Feb. 12). Woods is scheduled to make his 2015 debut at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, played from Jan. 29 to Feb. 1, then the Farmers Insurance Open the following week. Vonn's two certain races fall on Tuesday pro-am day and Round 2 at Torrey Pines. The remaining events are during the week of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, which Woods hasn't committed to at this point.
While Woods wasn't in Italy for Vonn's downhill win, he did get up early to watch with his daughter Sam. He texted Vonn after the race to congratulate her.
Vonn said, "He said, 'Good job,' and he's proud of me.'"
