Tiger Wood sure has good choice in women. After his divorce from a blonde bombshell by the name of Elin Nordegren, his current girlfriend is also a fair-haired beauty named Lindsey Vonn. But the surprising fact that few know is that the two make quite an odd couple.
Yes, Tiger’s ex-wife is on friendly terms with his new girlfriend. Elin was apprehensive at first regarding the influence Lindsey would have on the children. But after she got to know her, she has adopted a relaxed and positive mindset.
There are no worries since Lindsey is the ideal parental figure. She treats the kids with such gentleness and tact that she has literally won Elin’s heart. There seems to be no doubt in Elin’s mind that her children are in good hands so long as Lindsey is with Tiger.
"After meeting her, she found she actually liked her," the source says of Nordegren. "You'd think it would be weird, but Elin loves Lindsey and they talk all the time," the source tells US Weekly. "Elin likes that Lindsey is a strong woman."
Tiger Woods has a son and a daughter from his model ex-wife. And the children are pretty young being five and sex years of age respectively. Tiger and Elin broke their marriage four years ago when the latter got to know that the former had utilized his libido with a string of women in her absence.
Now, Elin often accompanies the two on vacation trips and is on a comfortable frequency with Lindsey whom she absolutely adores. Both are tough women who have emerged as survivors. Elin in a way strongly identifies with Lindsey who serves as a role model and keeps Tiger within his limits.
"Lindsey is really good for Tiger. She's strong, opinionated, and keeps him in line," the source explains. "Elin found that they are very similar and have a lot in common. They laugh and talk like they have been girlfriends forever."
Lindsey is not about to repeat the same mistake which Elin did and has the golfer wrapped around her finger. Tiger is absolutely smitten with Lindsey and admits this much that, since she is also an athlete like him, they both get on very well with each other.
"We're athletes, so I guess we have something in common there. We met at his charity event in Vegas, Tiger Jam, and, yeah, we were friends for a long time," Lindsey Vonn said in November. "I don't know...we just kind of relate really well to one another."
