Olympic gold medal-winning skier Lindsey Vonn is on “Katie” Tuesday (Nov. 5), where she talks with host Katie Couric about her relationship with professional golfer Tiger Woods, whom Couric says is a bit of an enigma to the public. Vonn says he’s actually just a big goofball.

“He’s funny. I don’t know, he’s really laid back, he’s a great guy,” says Vonn. “He’s always making jokes. Very competitive, just like me. We have very similar personalities.

“If there’s one thing I can say, he’s funny. He’s goofy, like dorky,” laughs Vonn. “He’s probably not gonna be that excited that I just said that.”
