It is three years ago, Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods broke, but the Olympic skier says the former couple are still friends.”

“I support him,” Vonn, 33, told Extra in a new interview Monday, after being asked about the desire of the pro golfer posts on social media.

“We are friends, we congratulate each other, and it’s really fun to see him playing so well again,” said Vonn, adding that she thinks “it’s only a matter of time before Woods, 42, wins a tournament.

“And from one athlete to the other, it is really nice to see after all his injuries and operations that he has come back and fought his way back,” she said. “He will be at the top again.”

The pairing of almost three years before finally calling it quits in May 2015. Vonn is now dating NHL star P. K. Subban. Meanwhile, Woods is dating Erica Herman.

Last month, Subban flowed about three times the Olympic win girlfriend on Fox News.

“I have not met someone who is tougher than her yet,” admitted Subban, who welcomed Vonn how she bounced back from her injuries during her time in the spotlight.

“But what she’s gone through – how they done it and how they managed to bounce back from serious injuries and remain at the top, I don’t think I know any other athlete who was as successful as they pre-and post-lesions,” he continued, noting that “it says a lot about her character.”

“Now, I see it every day – how hard they work and how much she takes great care of himself… I have not met anyone stronger than her yet.”

Vonn, who gladly accepted Subban the compliment, also praised her hockey-player beau.

“I mean, hockey players are pretty dang difficult, especially because of how many games they play and especially in the play-offs,” she explained.

“But he has not yet operations not yet, so he can’t really complain with me about everything,” Vonn added jokingly.
