Both of Tiger Woods' exes, Elin Nordegren and former girlfriend Lindsey Vonn, were making the rounds over Kentucky Derby weekend -- and party organizers were ordered to keep the two blondes apart. While Nordegren and Vonn have been friendly in the past, party organizers were instructed not to seat the Olympic skier anywhere near the former Mrs. Woods, we hear. The pair crossed paths a night before the big race at Friday's Barnstable Brown Foundation Gala, which was also attended by Kate Upton, Jon Voight and Megyn Kelly. We're told Swedish beauty Nordegren, who divorced Woods in 2010 after his myriad affairs were uncovered, then headed to breeder Black Rock Thoroughbreds' Fillies & Stallions party to join guests including Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and singer Joey Fatone, with Vonn arriving not far behind. "The staff was being told over a walkie-talkie that Lindsey was on her way over and must be put in a different area from Elin," said a source.
Gavin Rossdale has reportedly been on a first date with Tiger Woods' ex Elin Nordegren. Us Weekly reports the pair have hit it off after being set up by mutual friends. According to Us, the Florida-based Nordegren "flies to L.A. on her private plane a lot" and "they want to make it work." Aside from both being parents to young kids -- Nordegren has one daughter and one son and Rossdale has three sons -- the stars have both been at the center of public cheating scandals. Nordegren famously split from Woods in 2009 after he cheated on her with several women.
It's been almost 20 years since Tiger Woods overcame a disappointing first round to come back and win the 1997 Masters Tournament, becoming the youngest golfer -- and the first person of color – to do so. Now the golf legend is telling the story of his remarkable performance in the tournament in his own words. Woods is co-writing a book about that fateful weekend in April with sportswriter Lorne Rubenstein, the Associated Press reported. In a news release, Woods said -- in a bit of an understatement -- that his 1997 victory was "one of the most important tournaments in my life for many reasons." "I think about the hug with my dad and all the events that went on that week," he said.
