Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods mutually ended a nearly three-year relationship, according to Vonn’s social media and Woods’ website.

“Lindsey and I have mutually decided to stop dating,” Woods said on his website. “I have great admiration, respect and love for Lindsey and I’ll always cherish our time together. She has been amazing with Sam and Charlie and my entire family.

“Unfortunately, we lead very hectic lives and are both competing in demanding sports. It’s difficult to spend time together.”

Vonn and Woods went public with their relationship on March 18, 2013, one month after Vonn blew out her right knee in a crash at the World Championships. She ended up missing the Sochi Olympics.

Vonn and Woods were often seen together at Woods’ golf tournaments, Vonn’s ski races and at least one Denver Broncos football game.

Woods could make the 2016 U.S. Olympic golf team, but he’ll likely have to be in the top 15 of the Official World Golf Ranking at the cutoff in July 2016. Woods is currently ranked No. 116.

Vonn, who became the winningest women’s World Cup Alpine skier this past season, hopes to make the 2018 U.S. Olympic team.
