Thomas Vonn took to Twitter on Saturday, hours after Tiger Woods was assessed a two-stroke penalty that was first spotted by an alert golf fan watching on television, to joke about his ex-wife’s new beau.
Lindsey Vonn’s ex-husband wrote: “No problem Masters tournament happy to call in and help. You always have to keep an eye on those cheaters ;)”
Lindsey and Thomas Vonn married in 2007 and her husband served as her coach and advisor
Lindsey and Thomas Vonn were married in 2007. With her husband serving as her coach and advisor, Lindsey Vonn became an Olympic and World Cup champion before the partnership dissolved in 2011. A divorce was finalized earlier this year.

In an accompanying behind-the-scenes clip, Lindsey Vonn introduces herself as Sharon Stone.
“Hey this is Lindsey Vonn and we are in Vail, Colorado and we are shooting a scene from Basic Instinct and I am Sharon Stone,” she says.
Lindsey Vonn also explains how she came to channel the famous character.
“I have a lot of favorite movies and one of my favorites is Gladiator, but that would probably be a little hard to reenact or recreate,” she says.

In the interview she also refers to her now ex-husband, Thomas Vonn.
“In the last couple of photo shoots, people said that I looked like Sharon Stone. So my husband and I thought what are some Sharon Stone movies? And Basic Instinct came up. And I don’t know, it just kinda seemed like it would work and here I am,” Lindsey Vonn explains.
Once she finally gets into character and is in front of the lens, Lindsey Vonn admits that she does in fact feel and look like Sharon Stone’s character Catherine Tramell.
“I have to admit, when I put on all this make-up, and my hair is all Eighties-style and I put on the white dress, I do look like Sharon Stone,” the sportswoman says.
