Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods have not been dating very long, but the couple is already creating a buzz and receiving advice from most unlikely sources. Vonn in particular was warned by a former girlfriend that she may not be the only woman in Woods' life and was definitely not his type.

"You know when the pics came out of Tiger and his new girlfriend – somewhere, 15 other girls were going, 'Huh? I thought I was his girlfriend!'" Devon James, Woods' alleged mistress, told TMZ.
"I thought he would have picked a woman who was more petite and not someone who is more muscular and has a bigger head than his. Maybe his taste has changed since [ex-wife Elin Nordegren] and the 27 mistresses," James added.
Vonn and Woods announced their relationship via Facebook on Monday. There had been months of speculation since the two were often seen together in public. Both have had failed marriages and managed to get together. They finally addressed the rumors in Facebook posts on their respective pages.
"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," Woods posted.
"He confessed everything in his past to her and stuff – they're really into each other. They're a really happy couple – not living together yet," a friend told Us Weekly.
"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!" Vonn posted on her Facebook.
