Vonn: Woods 'hoping' to attend Sochi Olympics


Tiger Woods’ early 2014 schedule might include a trip to Russia – for the Winter Olympics.

Girlfriend Lindsey Vonn is nearing a return to the slopes after knee surgery and should be able to compete at the Feb. 7-23 Sochi Olympics.

Though the 2014 PGA Tour schedule won’t be released until later this year, Woods wouldn’t seem to have any conflicts with Vonn’s events. Woods doesn’t typically play Pebble Beach (just once since 2002), Scottsdale (not since 2002) or Riviera (not since 2006), and the WGC-Match Play isn’t usually held until late in the month.

Vonn was optimistic that Woods would be able to attend the Olympics, telling People Magazine recently, “We’re going to see how his schedule goes, but he’s hoping to come. He’s kind of a fish out of water in the cold weather. It’s going to be really cute!”
