Lindsey Vonn is an adrenaline-fueled, gold medal-winning alpine ski racer. She's also the girlfriend of golf great Tiger Woods. And while she's got a passion for her partner, she can't exactly say the same about his sport of choice.

But she tries to say it, nonetheless.

Vonn recently visited "Late Night With Seth Meyers," and when the host asked her for her honest feelings about the game, she put a positive — if not entirely convincing — spin on it.

"I ... love golf," she said.

When the audience responded with laughter, Meyers pressed on, pointing out that "it seems really different" from her athletic pursuits.

"I just ... I ... I love golf," Vonn said with a smile.

Still, despite her obvious not-love of the game, Vonn tries to be there for Woods when he plays. After all, he goes to her races — all 90 seconds or so of them.

"It's like 5 hours," she said of Woods' games. "It's a long time."

When Meyers told her that makes her a great girlfriend, Vonn was quick to agree. "I am!"
