UPDATE: 02/08/2013: Looks like using the phrase Tiger Woods' girlfriend Lindsey Vonn is a lot more feasible than a week ago.
After suffering a serious knee injury in Austria, Lindsey Vonn was spotted boarding Tiger Woods private jet for a flight home to the States. I can't really come up with a ton of reasons someone would send their private jet to Austria unless there was a pot of gold at the end of that rainbow. Let's keep an eye to see this one unfold. I'm predicting Lindsey make an appearance in Augusta come April...
Is anyone else amazed that Tiger Woods has almost become a tragic figure?
In the wake of the insane mistress scandal that rocked his personal life, his professional life was subsequently rocked. Whether it's losing a steady hand at home in Elin Nordegren, or losing the ability to score strange on the side without everyone watching him,... Tiger seems to have lost his mojo. The man who was once the most dominant force in his sport of any professional athlete has shrunk from golf God to average Joe.
In an interesting turn of events, we've seen Tiger's name in the press for a couple reasons this week. On Friday, he shot to the top of the leader board after posting a -7 at the Farmer's Insurance Open, and earlier in the week, we started hearing whisper's that Tiger Woods' girlfriend is Lindsey Vonn.
Lindsey Vonn is no stranger to interesting gossip rumors herself. After divorcing her husband Thomas Vonnin late 2011, Lindsey Vonn was reportedly dating Tim Tebow.
Us Magazine is reporting that Tiger Woods has been dating Lindsey Vonn since late November. There have been rumors in recent days that Tiger was trying to get back with Elin, but many are suggesting that those rumors were planted to keep the press off the relationship with Vonn. Says Us Weekly:
“The 37-year-old golf icon and Vonn began seeing one another in November. He’s been hot on Vonn’s trail as of late, watching her ski in the World Cup in Austria, then taking her on an Antiguan vacation, according to the magazine”
Not a ton of details other than this, so we'll keep an eye out. Tell you this much, if this relationship is real and it helps Tiger get his game back, then we might be seeing Vonn standing off 18 in Augusta this April. We'll know for sure then.

UPDATE: 03/07/2013: 2013 has proven to be a difficult year for Morgan Beck. Not only did she lose her baby with Bode, but the other woman (Sara McKenna) who Bode knocked up was days away from giving birth. McKenna gave birth in February to Samuel Bode Miller Jr. and this has set Morgan into a rage. McKenna is accusing Beck of harassing her via fake twitter accounts and the police have now become involved. Somehow I don't think we've heard the last of this story.
01/21/2013: It now that the woman who is pregnant is not his wife but Bode Miller's girlfriend Sara McKenna. The two had a fling during the spring of 2012, right before Bode met his future wife Morgan. If the timing is correct it would seem that Bode wasn't cheating on Morgan but more just continuing to be the player he is.
01/20/2013: As we previously talked about, Bode Miller's wife Morgan Beck is an open book on Twitter, and took to the Twitter-sphere to announce some deeply personal news. Beck announced on Twitter that she suffered a miscarriage with their child due in August.
“Pretty hard morning. We lost the baby : (Broken hearted but getting through it together.”
Especially hard news for any parents to learn, but multiplied as Bode Miller is headed into two separate paternity suits. Thoughts are with Bode Miller and Morgan Beck at this time.
01/19/2013: Looks like Bode Miller has been a busy man. In our first post we introduced you to Bode's wife Morgan Beck who he tried to kill with a golf ball to the face. We joked at the end of the post that Bode would need to put a few extra gifts under the tree to make up for hitting his wife with a golf ball. Bode gave her an extra gift alright, he knocked her up.
TMZ broke the story that Morgan recently announced she is pregnant and due in August. However, it wouldn't be a Bode Miller story unless there was more to it. Apparently, Bode also is claiming he is the father of a 4-year-old girl. Not satisfied enough with that,... Bode is claiming he is the father of a baby that has yet to be born. Read that again, BODE is the one claiming he is the father, not the other way around. Doesn't this mean Bode was cheating on his wife? Am I missing something on this one? I checked out Morgan's twitter account since she is very open in expressing her feelings on twitter and I don't see any sign she's upset. Seriously what are we missing on this story? In both cases Bode has filed legal petitions for joint custody.
So if you are keeping track at home Bode, in the course of a year, could be going from having one child (from a totally different woman) to four (from four different woman). Safe to say the legend of Bode Miller continues to grow!
The back story is simple, but there are so many angles to approach here. While enjoying a sunny December day out on the golf course, Bode Miller nailed his wife, Morgan Beck, right in the eye with a golf ball. The images that Morgan tweeted show how lucky she was. I only say lucky, because Morgan had on a pair of Kaenon sunglasses on that took the brunt of the hit. Morgan says without the sunglasses she probably would have lost her eye. If she doesn't already I smell a big sponsorship deal between Morgan and Kaenon brewing. Until this incident I've never heard of Kaenon sunglasses so already the story has to be paying off for Kaenon.
As an avid golfer myself I have a few questions myself about the incident with the biggest being how in the world did Bode pull this off? I mean, look at the damage done and consider that the ball hit Morgan in the eye in flight, and this wasn't a shot that bounced a few times before hitting her. I've seen that happen before and while it hurts its nothing compared to the injuries Morgan sustained. We're talking full on, top speed direct hit in the eye (or Kaenon sunglasses). I racked my brain and can come up with only one theory as to how this happened. It's because Morgan is a girl Now before we get massive amount of emails calling me a sexist hear me out on this. On most golf holes the ladies tees are well ahead of the men's tees. Sometimes the ladies will walk to their tee box to be ready after the men hit their shots. It's possible that Bode hit his shot and hit it so poorly that it was a low, line drive and Morgan took it right off the eye. This is the only plausible explanation I can come up with for how this happened. I searched to see if there was an explanation online and haven't found one yet so if anyone knows the true backstory please by all means email us.
I also have one other comment about this story. I might get killed for saying this but maybe, just maybe, the reason Morgan got hit had a little to do with karma. I'm actually surprised this didn't get more coverage at the time but here is a quote from Morgan's blog on October 29th, "I don't know if I am going to get in trouble for saying this, but I am so excited for Hurricane Sandy. Like nervous excitement. I know it will probably devastate many people, maybe even myself, but there is just something so incredibly awesome about Mother Nature kicking ass (until it kicks your ass, i'm sure)". I think there are a lot of people in NY and NJ who didn't share your "excitement" for Hurricane Sandy Mrs. Miller. I wanted to give her the benefit of the doubt and chalk it up to, something,... though I'm not entirely sure what. Unfortunately, I'm not seeing in sort of mea culpa come from Morgan. So could karma have played into this unfortunate golf accident? I'll let you be the judge of that.
As for the couple themselves we all know Bode Miller as the high-risk downhill skier who has won his share of races but also crashed out of many. His stories of late night drinking sessions are legendary. Morgan Beck is a 25 year old volleyball player/model from California. The couple was engaged in September of 2012 and married in October. Needless to say this Christmas Bode might have to put a few extra Xmas gifts under the tree for his wife to make up for the golf accident.

So let me get this straight - we have a former US Olympian (competing as recently at 2000) who has been moonlighting as an escort in Vegas under the name "Kelly Lundy" for the past year? Well that's certainly not something you read about everyday.
Favor-Hamilton competed for the US at the 1992, 1996 and 2000 Summer Olympics as a long distance runner. She did not medal at any of these games, but did get a bronze medal at the 1998 Goodwill Games and at one time held the US record for the 1000m. It looks as if the last time Favor-Hamilton competed professionally was in 2002. Now, we have often read that once an athlete retires, they often times feel like they have a hole to fill (easy joke to be made here if you're so inclined), but she has taken things to a whole new level. Especially if you consider that she is married to Mark Hamilton and the couple has a child. In defense of Suzy Favor-Hamilton's husband Mark, while he did know of his wife's new career, he was adamantly opposed to it and attempted to get her out of the business.
When news broke about Favor-Hamilton being a call-girl, our first question was how was she discovered? I don't think it's any stretch of the imagination that most people's reaction when hearing the name Suzy Favor-Hamilton would be "Who?". Apparently she thought it was a good idea to reveal to a few of her clients, which she charged upwards of $600 per hour, her true identity. So if you really think about it, she kinda deserved this. Favor-Hamilton has since taken to Twitter to issue her apologies, citing depression and trouble with her marriage as reasons she turned to the escort business.
What is totally unexpected here, is that Suzy Favor-Hamilton's husband Mark Hamilton KNEW THAT SHE WAS WORKING AS AN ESCORT!! Suzy has said that not only did he know but that "He tried, he tried to get me to stop. He wasn't supportive of this at all." Right, because in her crazy world - maybe he should have been supportive?
Suzy and Mark meet at the University of Wisconsin when she was a freshman. Mark was a starting pitcher for the baseball team at the time. The two were married within a month of her graduation in 1991. They now reside in New Glarus, Wisconsin (which is also the home of a great brewery by the same name).
