‘I will always cherish the memories that we’ve created together. Unfortunately, we both lead incredibly hectic lives that force us to spend a majority of our time apart. I will always admire and respect Tiger. He and his beautiful family will always hold a special place in my heart.’
Vonn also expressed her continued admiration for Woods in 2018 as his golf career experienced a resurgence.
‘I support him. We’re friends, we congratulate each other … it’s really nice to see him playing so well again,’ she said.
