Lindsey Vonn is at the Masters to watch boyfriend Tiger Woods go for his fifth green jacket — but don’t expect to see her following him around the course.
Vonn is still recovering from surgery on her right knee after a horrific ski crash that ended her season at the world championships two months ago. Vonn, who is still wearing a brace, said she will probably watch most of the tournament from the clubhouse.
“I can’t really walk too much,” Vonn told the New York Times. “And it’s so hilly here.”
This will go over well: Oscar Pistorius wants to start training again while on bail
While a representative for the Olympian says he has no immediate plans to return to the track while he is in “mourning,” it is something South Africa officials need to be aware of to track his movements while he waits for a trial in June.
Pistorius shot and killed his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, on Valentine’s Day. Despite being charged with murderm the athlete claims it was an accident, saying he thought she was an intruder.
Steenkamp’s parents want him to come clean.
“It’s only Oscar, Reeva that know the true story,” Barry Steenkamp said on Sunday. “And all I want, whether it will help me or it won’t, he must just come out with the honest truth.”

‘Totally weird’: Pistorius detective faces attempted murder charges for firing on bus full of passengers
South Africa’s National Prosecuting Authority acknowledged Thursday that the timing of attempted murder charges against a policeman leading the investigation into Oscar Pistorius was “totally weird” and that the policeman should be dropped from the case against the world-famous athlete.
Bulewa Makeke, spokeswoman for the NPA, said it was a decision for police and not prosecutors whether to take detective Hilton Botha off the case that has riveted the world’s attention and is bringing scrutiny on South Africa’s justice system. Botha testified on Wednesday in the case, acknowledging that nothing in Pistorius’ account of the fatal Valentine’s Day shooting of his girlfriend contradicted what police had discovered. That testimony in the double amputee’s bail hearing marked a setback for the prosecution.

Oscar Pistorius weeps in court as he is charged with Reeva Steenkamp murder
Oscar Pistorius held his head in his hands and wept openly in court Friday as prosecutors said they would pursue a charge of premeditated murder against the Olympian.
Pistorius was formally charged at Pretoria Magistrate’s Court with one count of murder after his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, a model and budding reality TV show participant, was shot and killed at Pistorius’ upmarket home in the predawn hours of Thursday.
Prosecutor Gerrie Nel said Friday in court it was premeditated murder, indicating the prosecution would file that more serious charge, upgraded from murder.
A statement from the family of Pistorius and his management followed, however, saying they dispute the claim that he murdered his girlfriend “in the strongest terms.” (AP Photo/Antione de Ras - Independent Newspapers Ltd South Africa; Waldo Swiegers/AFP/Getty Images)
