Minnesota native Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods are going public with their relationship.

Vonn tweeted Monday, "I guess it wasn't a well-kept secret but yes, I am dating Tiger Woods.

Our relationship evolved from a friendship into something more over these past few months and it has made me very happy.

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.

Thank you for understanding and your continued support!" She also posted the statement on Facebook.

Woods also announced the relationship. He posted the following statement on his Facebook page, "This season has been great so far and I'm happy with my wins at Torrey and Doral. Something nice that's happened off the course was meeting Lindsey Vonn.

Lindsey and I have been friends for some time, but over the last few months we have become very close and are now dating. We thank you for your support and for respecting our privacy. We want to continue our relationship, privately, as an ordinary couple and continue to compete as athletes."

Meanwhile, Vonn has been recovering after she suffered a knee injury in early February.
