According to the Fox Sports website, Nordegren “really likes Lindsey and thinks she is a very good influence on Tiger,” a source told the newspaper.

Nordegren, who has two children with Woods, divorced the world's No 1 golfer after his affairs with numerous women were uncovered.

Woods is dating Vonn, after having met the Olympic ski star at a charity event in 2012.

Nordegren reportedly said Woods “seems happy with Lindsey, and she gets on well with their children.”

Woods, currently in contention for his 15th Major title at the 142nd Open Championship at Muirfield, was spotted with Vonn during practice rounds.
