Lindsey Vonn might be in it with Tiger Woods for the long haul … because she was spotted this morning taking his kids to school … with no sign of Tiger.

The two awkwardly announced their relationship via Facebook back in March, saying they have “been friends for some time, but over the last few months we have become very close and are now dating.”

How Tiger Woods Must Improve Leading Up to 2013 US Open

Hi-res-7343694_crop_north

Tiger Woods is the hottest golfer in the world once again, but there are still some holes in his game heading into the U.S. Open.

A quick review of Wood’s recent winning ways paints a picture of a man well on his way back to breaking all the sport’s biggest records—including Jack Nicklaus’ 18 major championships.

Woods has entered six PGA Tour stroke-play tournaments this year and has won four of those six, including his impressive Players Championship victory at TPCSawgrass—an event he hadn’t won since 2001.

He’s leading the Fed-Ex Cup standings and the PGA Tour money list.

The way he’s been dominating this season, it feels almost like the Woods of old, but there’s something missing: Tiger hasn’t won a major championship since 2008. In fact, his last major victory came five years ago in the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines.

PGA Tour Schedule: Tiger Woods Ready To Win As U.S. Open Golf Championship Starts June 13, Bae Sang-moon Takes Byron Nelson For First Career Title

The PGA tour schedule is gearing up for the U.S. Open Golf Championship in June and this past weekend Bae Sang-moon gave himself some momentum heading into the weeks before facing names like Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy by winning his first PGA Tour event at the Byron Nelson Championship in Irving, Texas.

The South Korean star has won multiple times before on other tourney, but never on the PGA and despite not having bug names like Tiger Woods in attendance, he took the championship. He shot a one under par 69 on the final day of the tournament and was four strokes ahead as he had 11 holes to play but was able to keep up his lead to win. Keegan Bradley was previously in the lead after a record opening round and after winning it in 2011, he couldn’t finish things off this time around.

Bae, who had charged four strokes clear with 11 holes to play, fell back into a tie for the lead with overnight pacesetter Keegan Bradley after bogeying the 15th but recovered with a birdie on 16 to post a 13-under total of 267. Bae, the 26-year-old, an 11-time champion on various professional tours in Asia, held his nerve in difficult conditions on a firm, fast-running layout to close with a one-under-par 69 at the TPC Four Seasons Resort Las Colinas.

Bae tightened his grip on the tournament with three consecutive birdies from the fifth, sinking a 22-footer, a five-footer and then two-putting at the par-five seventh to forge four strokes clear at 16 under. Bae’s advantage was briefly cut to one after he found the right rough off the tee and a bunker with his approach to bogey the 10th but Bradley faltered with a three-putt bogey at the 11th to slip two behind the Korean.
