Former World No 1 golfer’s skier girlfriend praises his parenting skills
Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn was all praise for her boyfriend Tiger Woods' parenting skills. She said that she is lucky to be part of his and his two children — daughter Sam (7), and son Charlie's (6) lives.

"They're great. They're amazing kids, and he's an amazing father," Vonn was quoted as saying by People magazine.
"You know, I feel privileged to be along for the ride, and I help as much as I can. They're great kids. I love them."
The 30-year-old has become a significant part of Woods' life and she has taken responsibility of the kids. The couple drops the kids to school and escorts them around the golf course.

Recently, she was seen accompanying Sam and Charlie on the course during practice at Augusta and took part in the Masters Par-3 contest. Vonn has been by Woods' side through thick and thin. She even calls him "teddy bear".
When news surfaced of the two dating each other in March 2013, many suspected it was nothing more than a fling or something of a PR stunt, given how Woods was attempting to rehabilitate his image after having innumerable women in his life post the divorce from ex-wife Elin Nordegren.
Vonn was coming off a divorce from Thomas Vonn. But now, over two years later, their relationship seems as strong as ever and the children seem to be in good space with Vonn by their side.
