If world champion skier Lindsey Vonn has anything to say about it, she will not be getting married to golfer Tiger Woods – or anyone else in the near future.

Vonn made clear in the latest issue of Vogue magazine her dislike for the institution of marriage after her divorce from skiing husband and coach Thomas Vonn.

"Doesn’t work," Vonn told Vogue's Jonathan Van Meter about the mix of business and marriage. "I think there needs to be a certain kind of understanding because it’s very hard for me to relate to someone who doesn’t do sports at a high level. That part is necessary. But to have business in the relationship is very difficult. It definitely did not work for me, and I would not recommend it. I would also not recommend getting married."

When Van Meter asked Vonn if she would ever consider marriage again, he received a gruff "No, thanks! I am definitely not getting married. To anyone."

Vonn, whose maiden name is Kidlow, was married to Thomas Vonn in 2007, according to The Associated Press. Although she went on to win multiple world championships, the couple announced they were divorcing in November, 2011 and it was finalized in January.

Vonn told Vogue she and Woods "just clicked," when they met at charity event in 2012. She told Vogue that they started as friends, sharing stories and the relationship grew out of friendly chats and texts.

"It was just one of those things," Vonn said. "We talked a lot, corresponded a lot, and he was a good friend who was always there. And then it became more."

Vonn admitted it took her longer to come around to starting a relationship with Woods.

"It’s amazing. Life changes very quickly, in a very positive way, if you let it," she told Vogue. "I am a little bit of a late bloomer. I’m delayed. Having a delayed reaction here. But I figured it out."

Woods is currently competing in the British Open and in March returned to No. 1 in the world golf rankings, according to CBS Sports.  He has one 14 majors PGA events, second only to the iconic Jack Nicklaus, states Yahoo Sports.

He has not won a major since his marriage with Elin Nordegren blew up in a public cheating scandal in 2010, according to the Huffington Post.
