Tiger Woods is Dorky and Goofy, According to Lindsey Vonn

"PUNK: Chaos to Couture" Costume Institute Gala - ArrivalsTIGER Woods has quite the sense of humor — according to his girlfriend.

Lindsey Vonn says there’s more to Woods than his impressive golf swing.

“He’s always making jokes,” Vonn, 29, told Katie Couric on an episode of Katie airing Tuesday.

“He’s funny. He’s really laid back. He’s a great guy.

“He’s very competitive just like me. We have very similar personalities.

“He’s goofy, like dorky-goofy. He’s not going to be that excited that I just said that.”

Vonn recently credited Woods for helping her through the recovery process after, on Feb. 5, she tore the anterior crucial ligament and medial collateral ligament in her right knee and fractured her tibia in a crash at the Alpine skiing world championships in Schlamding, Austria.

“I’m not a very patient person,” Vonn said. “Tiger’s very patient and he’s very mentally tough. He’s a grinder.

“He works extremely hard, and he’s obviously also had an ACL injury as well and had the same surgery, so he knew what I was going through.

“He said just be patient, keep working hard, and everything is going to turn around. It really helped me get through it.”
