Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn are official! Oh, wait, that was a couple of months ago, and it was on Facebook. Well, now they're official in a way that only your first time walking the red carpet together can make you official.

Woods and Vonn were at the Met Ball in New York on Monday night as guests of Vogue. The Met Ball is the type of hoity-toity affair usually frequented by athletes such as Tom Brady (he's there), Roger Federer and Cristiano Ronaldo. Maybe Adam Scott, too, as he's been known to be an interested fashionista.

It is known in the fashion industry as the "night of nights."

But there's Woods in, I'm guessing, not a Nike suit -- showing off his new girlfriend and flashing his smile for the camera (before presumably dropping a few f-bombs about how the texture of his appetizers is all off). 

UPDATE (May 8 at 11:54 a.m. ET)

I wrote the above kind of tongue-in-cheek, but it appears from various reports that Woods was a bit, ahem, tipsy at the event. According to the New York Daily News, Woods was struggling:

"By 2 a.m., when the couple started to exit the party, Woods apparently fell while attempting to walk up a small flight of steps. According to a witness, his tumble caused him to freeze until a stern-faced Vonn came to his rescue, helping him to his feet and guiding him on their way out. Woods was reportedly swaying a bit after the fall."

These pictures (via Splash News) lead me to believe it.
