Match made in athlete heaven? Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods have officially been dating for over seven months now, but fans are still trying to learn more about the famous couple. On the upcoming Tuesday, Nov. 5 episode of Katie Couric‘s self-titled talk show, the host asks the 29-year-old Olympic skier to explain what her 37-year-old golf pro boyfriend is really like as a person.
“He’s funny,” Vonn says of Woods with a big smile. “He’s really laid-back. He’s a great guy. He’s always making jokes . . . very competitive, just like me.”
“We have very similar personalities,” she further explains, “but if there’s one thing I could say: he’s funny. He’s goofy, like dorky goofy.”
“Really?! I don’t know, you just don’t think of Tiger Woods as kind of dorky,” Couric says in disbelief. “He seems like such a cool costumer.”
Vonn jokingly adds, “He’s probably not going to be that excited that I just said that.”
The gold medalist confirmed she was dating Woods on Facebook in March 2013, after meeting at an event in 2012. Vonn was previously married to fellow skier Thomas Vonn, whom she divorced in 2012. Woods divorced from wife Elin Nordegren in 2010 following an epic cheating scandal.
During an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman last week, Vonn explained how their friendship evolved into a relationship. “We’re athletes, so I guess we have something in common there,” she told host David Letterman. “We met at his charity event in Vegas, Tiger Jam, and, yeah, we were friends for a long time. I don’t know, we just kind of relate really well to one another.”
