Tiger Woods discussed his breakup with Lindsey Vonn in a Time magazine interview published Thursday.
“Well, with Lindsey, what was hard is we never had time together,” Woods said, according to the report. “We’re texting each other. It was a great relationship, but it was so hard, when I’m training to do my sport, it takes umpteen hours to do, and I can’t travel, except to my tournaments, because I’m here dedicated to my two kids. Meanwhile, most of her summer is spent in South America, at training camps in Chile and Argentina, and then you’ve got her season, which is mostly in Europe. And I can’t travel because I have the kids — my off weeks I’m devoted to my kids — and I have to be here. It’s a relationship that was fantastic, but it just can’t work on that level. It just could not work. It was doing an injustice to both of us.”
Vonn, who will compete in Alpine skiing World Cup races in Lake Louise, Alberta, from Friday through Sunday (streaming information here), said she had no regrets about their three-year relationship in a CNN interview published last week.
“I loved him, and I still love him,” Vonn said. “Unfortunately, it didn’t work out for us.”
The injured Woods, 39, has fallen to No. 400 in the Official World Golf Ranking and is extremely unlikely to qualify for the first Olympic golf tournament in 112 years next year. There is no timetable for his return to competition.
