Vonn's mother likes 'nice guy' Woods


Tiger Woods wasn't present for Lindsey Vonn's record-tying win, but he was watching at home.

Vonn on Sunday tied Annemarie Moser-Proell's record for women's World Cup wins with her downhill victory Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy.

Woods, who is gearing up for the start of his 2015 season, was apparently watching at home on the Internet, around 5 a.m. Florida time.

"He said, `Good job,' and he's proud of me," Vonn told the Associated Press, referring to a text she received from Woods. "He was watching with his daughter Sam, so they were up early in the morning."

Vonn also mentioned that Woods will be in attendance for some of her races at the World Championships in Colorado from Feb. 2-15. Woods is scheduled to play the Waste Management Phoenix Open from Jan. 29-Feb. 1 and the Farmers Insurance Open from Feb. 5-8.

"It's tough to have two athletes competing at the same time, but he's definitely going to make something work," she said.

As for what kind of impression Tiger has made on the rest of the family, Vonn's mother, Lindy Lunn, offered: "I've met him. Nice guy. I like him."
