Elin decided to end their marriage when her husband admitted to numerous affairs during their time together.
Elin, whose children Sam and Charlie are from her marriage to Tiger, confided in HELLO! In her one and only interview, the model said she wanted "people to know how hard it's been".
In 2010, she won a gold medal at the Winter Olympics, becoming the first ever American woman to be decorated in the downhill category.
Now, her relationship with Tiger will increase her profile even further and provide the sporting world with a power couple not seen since the likes of Andre Agassi and Steffi Graff.
"I don't plan on addressing this further as I would like to keep that part of my life between us, my family and close friends.
Thank you for understanding and your continued support! The relationship is the first sign that golfer Tiger is moving on following his highly-publicised divorce from ex-wife Elin Nordegren.
Tiger's new partner Lindsey is to the slopes what the sportsman is to the golf course.
The blonde is a World Cup alpine ski racer who competed with the United States national Team.
A Catholic can never, ever, agree to the use of artificial contraception IN marriage, as well as prior to marriage.
A Catholic is not permitted to have genital intercourse until married, no matter how much it seems right or you love each other, or if there is a desire to live together to see if it will work out first, etc.
A non-Catholic must accept this AND show respect for the person they love by not ridiculing this belief and not tempting them to have sex.
A non-Catholic must accept that the person they love submits to the teaching authority of the Catholic Church in their life and needs to have their mortal sins absolved by a Catholic priest. Genital intercourse prior to marriage is wrong and a mortal sin.
If committed, the sacrament of confession is necessary.
