Tiger and Lindsey Vonn dating?! Why it makes sense

Well, the beautifully lit, professional photos posted on Facebook make it official: Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn are dating. This is the way all couples should update their relationship statuses.

But, hey, stop looking so surprised. Of course they're dating. Consider all the things they have in common.

1. Big-time breakups

Tiger vs. Elin pretty much set the bar for high-profile sports splits. And by "pretty much" we mean, "ABSOLUTELY, 10,000%."

But Vonn has been through something similar. She recently divorced her husband of four years, Thomas Vonn, who was also her coach. She tearfully thanked him in a memorable interview at the Vancouver Olympics and the pair was the closest thing the ski world had to a power couple as Vonn & Vonn racked up world titles and medals.

2. Big-time knee injuries

The world's greatest female skier, Vonn suffered a torn ACL and MCL in this awful wreck while racing last month. She'll miss the remainder of this season and possibly a lot of next season.

The world's greatest golfer, Tiger has had at least four surgeries on his left knee alone. A torn ACL caused him to miss eight months in 2008 and subsequent injuries since then have forced him off the course for weeks and months at a time.

They should be able to have long discussions about their rehabs. And Vicodin.

3. Big-time champions

Vonn has won 59 World Cup races, four World Cup overall championships, six consecutive world downhill titles and an Olympic gold medal.

Tiger has won 76 PGA Tour events, 14 majors, four Masters and 10 PGA Tour Player of the Year Awards.

If they choose, Tiger and Lindsey can build the world's most obnoxious trophy case.

4. Lindsey looks like Elin.
