Lindsey Vonn’s ex takes a dig at Tiger Woods

When Lindsey and Tiger were in a relationship, she was often spotted at Woods’ matches. One time, she also surprised Woods by bringing his kids along with her. The couple also frequented many awards shows together.

Going into the 2013 Masters, Tiger Woods was the No.1 Golfer in the world. However, in the Finals, he faced a penalty after a bad drop. This drop penalty was faced with much criticism. And even though he was allowed to keep playing, he fell behind.

One of these critics was none other than Thomas Vonn, the ex-husband of Tiger Woods’ then-girlfriend Lindsey Vonn. Thomas took to Twitter to share the news of Woods’ penalization and took a dig at the champion golfer. Not just Vonn, many people accused Tiger of cheating. Notably, he moved the ball back a few feet from where he originally meant to take the shot after it had rolled into the water. It was only later that both officials and Woods realized that he had committed a penalty.
