A photo of Tiger Woods shows the golfer in an apparent “Modern Family” moment: sitting between his girlfriend and his ex-wife at his son’s sporting event.
Woods, 38, is dating Olympic gold medal skier Lindsey Vonn, and she was with him and his ex-wife, Elin Nordegren, over the weekend at Woods’ son’s tee ball game.
Woods and Nordegren divorced in 2010 following numerous reports that he cheated on her with several women. They have two children together.
The photo, shown on the website TMZ, shows Woods sitting on stands on the side of the ball field. Vonn sits next to him, and, while Nordegren sits in the bench in front of them, she’s still close to the pair.
Woods went public with his relationship with Vonn last year, and, according to Us magazine, there is no bad blood between the two.
In fact, Vonn and Woods reportedly have gone on double-dates with Nordegren and her current beau, coal industry billionaire Chris Cline, according to the magazine.
“For most people, the breakup of their marriage means they don’t really want to spend a lot of time together, so what this tells me in this situation is that all of these four people actually enjoy each other’s company,” Dr. Stacy Kaiser, a licensed psychotherapist and author of “How to Be a Grown Up,” said in an interview with “Good Morning America.”
She also called it “wonderful” that Woods’ children were getting to see their parents and Vonn together at the game.
“First of all, it shows that there’s a unity in supporting the kids and it also makes for a huge cheering section,” she said.
Ian Drew, from Us magazine, said Woods and Nordegren “both realized that their marriage was not exactly perfect and Tiger made some mistakes. He definitely learned from those mistakes from which he took a big fall, but now they’re both happy in other relationships and they’ve learned to move on.”
“It turns out Elin actually loves Lindsey,” Drew added. “She respects her. She’s a strong woman who’s able to keep Tiger in line.”
