Is Tiger Woods dating Kristin Smith? Woods denies Daily Mail report


Tiger Woods has been rumored to be dating Kristin Smith for well over a year now, and the rumors kind of flare up and then go away. However, on Aug. 10, the Daily Mail in the United Kingdom reported Woods and Smith were seen for the first time in public as a couple.

That didn't set well with the 14-time major champion, and he took to Twitter to put to bed any speculation that the two are currently dating -- although he confirmed they did in the past.

Woods makes it clear that he's not with Kristin Smith. It's unclear if he's dating anyone else, but he rules out Kristin Smith.

The Daily Mail claimed to have the first photos of the two as a couple, claiming they were taken July 31 near Albany in the Bahamas, where Woods has a residence and posted from on Twitter that he had been grabbing lobsters bare-handed in the ocean.

So who is Kristin Smith? Smith, 34, was briefly married to former Dallas Cowboys player Gerald Sensabaugh. They have a child together. She owns a styling company called The Clad Life.

When Tiger Woods was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence on Memorial Day weekend, tabloids reported Smith found out about the news while shopping and was visibly distraught at a Neiman Marcus.

On Aug. 9, Woods, through his attorney, pleaded not guilty to driving under the influence while agreeing to enter a program for first-time offenders in exchange for pleading guilty to reckless driving.
