Tiger Wood's ex-wife Elin Nordegren and his current lover Lindsey Vonn have become friends, even going out for drinks together and leaving the world's No. 1 golfer to play Mr. Mom with his two kids.

A source told Us Weekly that Nordegren, 34, wanted to learn more about Vonn, 29, when the Olympic gold medalist skier became romantically involved with her ex-husband, 38, because she knew that would lead to Vonn spending time with their children.

Woods and Nordegren had two children in their marriage – daughter Sam, 6, and son Charlie, 5. The couple divorced in 2010 after a public breakup in which Woods confessed to cheating on her numerous times.

"After meeting her, she found she actually liked her," the source said about Nordegren's impressions of Vonn. "You'd think it would be weird, but Elin loves Lindsey and they talk all the time. Elin likes that Lindsey is a strong woman."

The same source said that during a recent vacation together, Nordegren and Vonn would leave with each other "to grab drinks together, while Woods stayed with the kids."

"Lindsey is really good for Tiger," the source told Us Weekly. "She's strong, opinionated and keeps him in line. Elin found that they are very similar and have a lot in common. They laugh and talk like they have been girlfriends forever."

Woods, of course, has a lot of time to play Mr. Mom these days as he recovers from back surgery earlier this month that forced him to miss the Masters for the first time in his career.

"After attempting to get ready for the Masters, and failing to make the necessary progress, I decided, in consultation with my doctors, to have this procedure done," Wood said on his website at the time. "It's a week that's very special to me. It also looks like I'll be forced to miss several upcoming tournaments to focus on my rehabilitation and getting healthy."

Vonn, who has been dating Woods for a little more than a year, is bouncing back from a knee injury that forced her out of the Sochi Winter Olympic, denying her a chance to defend her downhill gold medal she won in 2010.
