Tiger Woods went public with the sports world's worst kept secret that he was dating Olympic ski champion Lindsey Vonn on Tuesday to discourage paparazzi looking to make a big buck. The new high-powered sports couple — Woodsey to some — simultaneously posted messages on their Facebook pages yesterday announcing that they were indeed a couple and dating. Woods included four studio photos of the himself and Vonn smiling like they getting headshots for a Crest audition. Woods says being chased by photographers presented a danger to his two children. He believes that by publishing his own pictures of him and his new girlfriend it would deter the paparazzi — who Woods called "stalkarazzi" — from hovering around the couple and trying to get that million-dollar shot.  By releasing his own pictures, the paps would not be able to make as much money on the photos and would likely make it more worthwhile to chase other celebrities. A pretty good idea with the PGA tour ready to start as well.
