In a statement released along with a small photo gallery on his Facebook page, Tiger Woods announced that he is dating U.S. skiing star Lindsey Vonn.

Tiger's statement:
This season has been great so far and I'm happy with my wins at Torrey and Doral. Something nice that's happened off the course was meeting Lindsey Vonn. Lindsey and I have been friends for some time, but over the last few months we have become very close and are now dating. We thank you for your support and for respecting our privacy. We want to continue our relationship, privately, as an ordinary couple and continue to compete as athletes.

Professionally speaking, this is a great move for both of them.

Tiger's moving on from the disaster of his extremely public serial infidelity during his marriage with former Swedish model Elin Nordegren, and he's starting fresh with a very popular American athlete.

On the other hand, Vonn is catapulting into the public eye, to levels that she has never seen before.

Vonn is already a very popular skier, but she's still just a skier. Winter Olympians aren't publicized anywhere near as much as major athletes. By latching on to Tiger, she's putting herself on a level of publicity and visibility that most skiers will never achieve.

Financially, this could be a huge boon for Lindsey, and it could help Tiger a lot with repairing his public image.

As far as an actual legitimate dating relationship goes, this is an absolute train wreck waiting to happen.

Sure, there's a chance that Tiger has turned things around and is ready to be faithful to one woman. But honestly, I'm doubting it.

What's your take? Is this relationship legit? And will it last? Or is it just a PR move for both of them?
