SCHLADMING, Austria, Feb. 9 (UPI) -- Photographs taken in Austria this week showed injured skiing champion Lindsey Vonn being flown back to the United States aboard Tiger Woods' private jet.

TMZ.com said Vonn was taken from a hospital where she had been treated since suffering a season-ending knee injury, to a nearby airport where she boarded the golfer's plane for a flight to the United States.

Vonn will have surgery to repair the damage suffered this week in a crash-landing during the Alpine World Championships in Schladming.

The rescue mission stoked reports that Vonn and Woods have become romantically linked.

They slipped away last month for a quiet getaway in the Caribbean, the New York Daily News said. Woods also paid a low-key visit to Vonn in Austria.

Woods was not aboard Vonn's Friday flight. He was working in California this week at a PGA tournament at Pebble Beach.
