Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn have announced they are dating.

Sports has a new power couple: Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn confirmed they’re dating. Two months after rumors began circulating in Europe, Woods and Vonn posted items on their Facebook pages Monday to announce their relationship. The posts include photos of golf’s 14-time major winner and the Olympic and World Cup downhill ski champion.

‘‘This season has been great so far and I’m happy with my wins at Torrey and Doral,’’ Woods said. ‘‘Something nice that’s happened off the course was meeting Lindsey Vonn. Lindsey and I have been friends for some time, but over the last few months we have become very close and are now dating.’’

Woods made a stop in Austria — where Vonn was competing in the world championships — in January on his way to Abu Dhabi to start his season. Two weeks ago, after he won the Cadillac Championship at Doral, The Daily Mail published photos that showed a woman, who appeared to be Vonn, at the marina where Woods’s yacht ‘‘Privacy’’ was docked.

‘‘I guess it wasn’t a well-kept secret but yes, I am dating Tiger Woods,’’ Vonn said on her Facebook page. ‘‘Our relationship evolved from a friendship into something more over these past few months and it has made me very happy.’’

Both said they wanted to keep everything else private.

Vonn is recovering from right knee surgery — something familiar to Woods — after a Feb. 5 crash that ended her season. Her divorce from Thomas Vonn after more than four years became official in January. They separated in 2011. Vonn, whose maiden name is Kildow, decided to keep Vonn as her last name after the divorce.

Woods’s past relationships are far more sensational. His marriage of five years to Elin Nordegren of Sweden collapsed in 2010 after revelations of multiple extramarital affairs. Woods spent the summer of 2010 working out details of a divorce, which became official in August that year. They share custody of their two children.

Lohan plea agreement

Lindsay Lohan has accepted a plea deal in a misdemeanor car crash case that includes 90 days in a rehabilitation facility. The actress pleaded no contest Monday in Los Angeles to reckless driving, lying to police, and obstructing officers who were investigating the accident involving the actress in June. A judge says Lohan, 26, will be sentenced to 90 days in rehab, 30 days of community labor, and 18 months of psychological therapy. The ‘‘Liz & Dick’’ star was on probation when her sports car crashed on Pacific Coast Highway while on her way to a film shoot.

Shocked

“Wow, she’s a total bigot and said so on stage. It was unreal. We had to leave. I am so disappointed.” — One of many social media responses to alt-folk singer Michelle Shocked (right), who reportedly went on an anti-gay rant at a concert Sunday in San Francisco.
