Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn and tennis star Tiger Woods have decided to end their relationship after spending almost three years together.

Lindsey Vonn, Tiger Woods Split

“After nearly three years together, Tiger and I have mutually decided to end our relationship,” Vonn announced on Facebook Sunday. “I will always cherish the memories that we’ve created together. Unfortunately, we both lead incredibly hectic lives that force us to spend a majority of our time apart. I will always admire and respect Tiger. He and his beautiful family will always hold a special place in my heart.”

Not long after Vonn’s post, Woods confirmed the split from his longtime girlfriend on his website.

“Lindsey and I have mutually decided to stop dating,” Woods wrote. “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 were last seen together on the golf course at the pre-Masters Par 3 Tournament last month, where Vonn helped his kids – Sam, 7, and son Charlie, 6 – caddy for their father. The two announced their relationship in March 2013.

Prior to dating Woods, Vonn had been married to skier Thomas Vonn. Woods divorced from former model Elin Nordegren after six years of marriage in 2010.
