In a Facebook post, Vonn said that she and Woods decided to call it quits since they “both lead incredibly hectic lives that force us to spend a majority of our time apart.” But a source speaking with DailyMail.com shared that Vonn actually pulled the plug on her relationship with Woods after he confessed to cheating on her with another woman -- the same issue that led to the break down of Woods' marriage to his ex-wife Elin Nordegren.
“He had a relapse in the sex department,” ‘the friend said. “Lindsey found out about women again. Always while he's on the road. Just like when he was with Elin.”
The source added that the indiscretion occurred after Tiger was eliminated from the Farmers Insurance Open in February. “He withdrew from Farmers. You have to understand, while it's not right, it's not really wrong either. Tiger isn't married. He doesn't really drink or do drugs. So what else does he have when he can't afford to lose again? He is allowed to find some relief,” the source said.

According to the insider, Woods was spotted with the woman, leading him to confess to Vonn what happened between the pair. "When Tiger realized he was seen, he became concerned and eventually he decided to confess to Lindsey. Something he didn't do with Elin. He came clean and I give him credit for that,” the source said. “Yes, Tiger cheated again. But it wasn't with anyone special. He really wanted Lindsey to be the one. But he blew it again. He can't help himself. He's got an addiction. He relapsed.”
The source said that Woods “doesn't even see it as cheating because there's no romance or feeling there. It's just a stress reliever.” But Vonn apparently wasn’t in agreement with the golfer’s reported views on the infidelity, and immediately dropped him when he revealed the cheating bombshell during a therapy session with her.
“But Lindsey is not like Elin, the long-suffering wife who will turn a blind eye. She knew that one relapse could lead to two and three and then he's off to the races,” the source said. What do you think about Lindsey leaving Tiger? Tweet us @OKMagazine or let us know in the comments section below.
