Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn have mutually decided to split up after nearly three years of dating.
The former world No 1 golfer and the Olympic skiing champion blamed the pressure of their busy schedules for the split.
Lindsey Vonn said on Facebook that the decision was mutual.
In a statement on his website, Tiger Woods said he would “always cherish our time together”.
Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn first publicly announced they were an item in March 2013 following weeks of speculation.
“After nearly three years together, Tiger and I have mutually decided to end our relationship,” Lindsey Vonn, 30, said on her Facebook page.
“I will always cherish the memories that we’ve created together. Unfortunately, we both lead incredibly hectic lives that force us to spend a majority of our time apart.
“He and his beautiful family will always hold a special place in my heart.”
The couple were last seen together in public at last month’s Masters golf tournament, where Linsey Vonn was with Tiger Woods’s 7-year-old daughter Sam and 6-year-old son Charlie.
Tiger Woods, 39, said in his statement: “I have great admiration, respect and love for Lindsey and I’ll always cherish our time together. She has been amazing with Sam and Charlie and my entire family.
“Unfortunately, we lead very hectic lives and are both competing in demanding sports. It’s difficult to spend time together.”
Tiger Woods was previously married to Swedish model Elin Nordegren, but they divorced in 2010 after it emerged the golfer had had a series of extramarital affairs.
Tiger Woods’ ex-wife, Elin Nordegren, took nine years to get her degree, but she finished with a 3.98 GPA and was named the most outstanding senior in her class at Rollins College.

According to PEOPLE magazine: “Nordegren started college courses at Rollins in 2005, when she was married to Woods and did not yet have children, chipping away at her degree sometimes one class at a time. She took a semester off following the birth of each of her children – Sam, now 6, and Charlie, now 5 – and again in 2010, in the wake of the spectacular revelations of infidelity by her then-husband. That period she referred to Saturday as “the wild storm of my personal life.”
Elin Nordegren, who divorced Tiger Woods in 2010, was probably a little sidetracked over the course of the time that spanned her degree.
“Yes, nine years is a pretty long time,” she said.
“When I received the honor of speaking today I was happy. I was also a little surprised. I have been called a <<woman with no words>> in the media and criticized for not talking very much.”
Elin Nordegren spoke about how far she’d come since coming to the US as a married 25-year-old.
“Today, nine years later I’m a proud American and have two beautiful children. … But I’m no longer married,” said Elin Nordegren, which elicited laughter and applause from the crowd.
“Your actions inspired me to keep on going to the finish line. We walked the talk,” Tiger Woods’ ex-wife said.
Tiger Woods and his new girlfriend Lindsey Vonn seem to be proving the doubters wrong.
The acknowledged philanderer and his ski star girlfriend appear to be going from strength-to-strength as evidenced by the sight of them taking his children by Elin Nordegren to school together on Tuesday.
Low-key and subtly loved up, Tiger Woods, 37, and Lindsey Vonn, 28, looked content as they accompanied Sam, 5, and 4-year-old Charlie on their mini commute.

However, it seems Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn, who have been dating for a number of months, are well past the awkward first few dates stage.
The golfer and the skier looked more than comfortable to show off their sporting physiques as they spent a day lounging and fishing on Tiger Woods’ yacht in Florida on Tuesday.
Tiger Woods, 37, who in recent years has discovered there are plenty more fish in the sea after splitting from his wife Elin Nordegren after a string of infidelities on his part, seemed happy with his new girlfriend. Making the most of the warm weather the golfer lounged about on the boat with his shirt off while casually dangling his rod in the water.
Dressed in a pair of white shorts and white trousers Tiger Woods completed his look with a backwards white cap.
Lindsey Vonn, 28, was equally as happy to show off her body and slipped into a bandeau bikini.

Clearly excited about her trip she ran to a bridge nearby to take a couple of snaps of Tiger Woods as he tried to catch fish.
Wearing her hair off her face in a messy bun and a pair of dark shades, Lindsey Vonn showed off her natural good looks and laid-back style.
Things are clearly going well between the couple as they were joined for their trip by Tiger Woods’ children from his marriage to Swedish Elin Nordegren – Sam and Charlie.
The children also enjoyed a spot of fishing however they didn’t seem to be enjoying it quite as much as their father, as they looked a little fed up waiting to catch something.
Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods’ relaxing day out comes after their last outing ended a little raucously.
It has been reported that Lindsey Vonn was left embarrassed and angry as Tiger Woods had too much to drink at a Met Gala after party.
Tiger Woods reportedly “looked uncomfortable” as his girlfriend led him through the roof top party.
Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods, who announced their love on Twitter and Facebook with a series of professional shots, are said to have left the party at around 2 a.m. when Woods stumbled up the stairs and fell over.
Luckily, Lindsey Vonn was on hand to pick her man up and she dragged him out of the party to their waiting car outside.
Lindsey Vonn chanced a face-to-face meeting with Tiger Woods’ ex-wife Elin Nordegren at the former couple’s daughter Samantha’s junior baseball game.
Lindsey Vonn avoided the awkward encounter by reportedly sitting in Tiger Woods’ car for an hour while the golfer watched Samantha, 5, play ball.
The Olympic skier most likely stayed in Tiger Woods’s black Mercedes rather than risk an encounter with his ex-wife Elin Nordegren, who was also watching the event – though Woods and Elin sat at opposites ends of the stadium.
Lindsey Vonn, who is recuperating from a bad fall while competing, was seen sweeping back her blonde hair in the front passenger seat as tiger Woods’s car pulled away after the game.
Her crutches were on the back seat.

The source claimed: “Tiger didn’t even balk at the demand. Even though his accountants think he’s crazy, he’s ready to sign the pre-nup and set a wedding date.

Once golf’s greatest superstar, Tiger Woods’ career and marriage fell apart after he was revealed as a serial cheater and had a series of mistresses, the most high-profile being New York party girl Rachel Uchitel.
The couple divorced after five years in 2010 and Elin Nordegren is currently spending a lot of time and money on creating her dream home, rebuilding a $12 million North Palm Beach estate in Florida.
Since their divorce, Elin Nordegren has dated several men, including wealthy financier Jamie Dingman.
The stunning Swede, who recently showed off her flawless figure while on holiday in the Bahamas with her children and family, has been spotted around South Florida with professional hockey player Douglas Murray, who she was first romantically linked to in July 2012.
However, the NHL player didn’t appear to be vacationing with Elin Nordegren and her family at the exclusive Paradise Island resort.
A source told the Enquirer: “Tiger swore that he’d never cheat on her again, but Elin told him that she didn’t believe him.”
The magazine claims that Tiger Woods even got down on one knee and proposed, presenting Elin Nordegren with a ring for Christmas.
The Enquirer also alleges the couple are having sex again and a source claimed: “Tiger stopped by Elin’s rental house one afternoon when their kids were out with a nanny and they had sex for the first time since the split.
“It took them both by surprise, but they’ve continued to find alone time when they’re both at their homes in Florida.”

However, he then discovered the man was Elin Nordegren’s brother Axel.
The source said: “Tiger breathed a sigh of relief. He and Elin actually got a big laugh out of it.
“Tiger told me <<I love Elin>>. Without her, I’ll be miserable for the rest of my life.”
Rachel Uchitel, the so-known “Tiger Woods mistress”, married her fiancée, Matt Hahn, this weekend in Las Vegas.
Rachel Uchitel became famous when rumours about a possible love affair between her and former golf player Tiger Woods got media’s attention.
The-36 year-old nightclub manager was considered Tigers number one mistress and was covered in reports over and over again as she tumbled out of Tigers closet one time after the other.
Matt Hahn’ s private and professional sectors have been affected by his life style. His affairs resulted in his marriage to Elin Nordegren, Swedish model, being shattered. Furthermore, Tigers is currently struggling to get back in shape to continue his golf career.
A spokesman for Rachel Uchitel described the marriage as unplanned for. The couple got the idea about getting married while attending a wedding during the weekend. Rachel and her 10 years younger husband, exchanged vows during a ceremony that took place on Sunday at the Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas. Just 12 close friends of the couple were present for the event.
Other celebrities like Michael Jordan, Demi Moore, Bruce Willis and Britney Spears used the same location for their weddings.
Rachel Uchitel stated that they “are really happy and feel extremely fortunate to have one another”.
The bride wore a long orange dress for the event and walked into the chapel on the Single Ladies Beyonce song, only to exit it while listening to That’s What You Get for Waking Up In Vegas.
The couple made their relationship public in March. Since then both twitted several times about it. For Rachel Uchitel, Hahn, former Penn State football player, is the best thing that happened to her in a very long time. While her husband feels “very blessed to come home to such an amazing person every night”.
Rachel Uchitel was married once before to Steven Ehrenkranz, a long time friend and old schoolmate who was a trader for the New York Stock Exchange. They got married in 2004 but their relationship only lasted for a few months.
Also, she was engaged before her two marriages to James Andrew O’Grady, and investment banker, who died tragically in the 9/11 events.
