Did Tiger Woods' Romance with New Girlfriend Lindsey Vonn Spark His Charge Up the PGA Leaderboard?
Tiger Woods and new girlfriend Lindsey Vonn announced their new romance on Facebook and even released a few photos of the couple smiling together to confirm their new relationship.
That was met with immediate skepticism from some, one gossip report has already claimed that Tiger and Lindsey are only together as a public relations ploy for sponsorships.
While Tiger is wearing a Nike golf polo in the online pics from the couple, others have said their romance is very real and Lindsey has considered his past and is happy to be going forward in her romantic relationship with Tiger.
Among all the gossip about the couple, one thing seems certain.
Tiger Woods golf game is very improved since he began dating Lindsey.
In four starts this season, Woods has two wins.
Add to that, he is red hot again this week, Tiger is leading at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando, Florida as play began on Sunday.
He is on the verge of going to No. 1 for the first time in 2 1/2 years as a win today will place him back on top of the world golf rankings.
A win in the PGA golf tournament would also be his eighth Arnold Palmer Invitational and his 77th career tournament victory and would seemingly end his slump and place him back looking to dominate the game again.
He only won three tournaments all of last year (2012), but since he began dating Lindsey, he is already 2 for 4 and looking to make it 3 for 5 by winning one of his favorite tourneys to win.
With the confidence of a solid relationship and a putting stroke that is back and looking spectacular at times, will Jack Nicklaus' major victory record be in jeopardy?
Tiger has 14 major victories, while Jack Nicklaus' holds the record with 18 majors.
Woods hasn't won a major since 2008, and hasn't won a Masters since 2005, but all eyes will be on Tiger this season as he approaches the four majors with his swing back in line and a new blonde on his arm.
Will Lindsey be the spark that puts Jack's record in jeopardy?
