AUGUSTA, Ga. — World champion skier Lindsey Vonn of Vail took time out from physical therapy on her leg to watch her boyfriend play at the Masters.
Vonn is dating the number one golfer in the world, Tiger Woods, and she showed up at Augusta National to show her support.
The New York Times reports Vonn wore a beige dress that was long enough to cover the brace she wears on her leg.
She told the Times Golf Blog that she was having difficulty walking because Augusta is so hilly. She watched Tiger play the first hole and then planned to watch more of his performance in the first round from the club house.
She’s been in Augusta for a few days and she’s working out with her physical therapist at a gym there.
Vonn says her surgically repaired knee is progressing and she’s on schedule to make her return to world skiing competition in the 2014 Winter Olympics.
Woods shot a two-under par 70 on Thursday.
