Tiger Woods will tee it up in The Players Championship on Thursday, but he spent Monday almost 1,000 miles away from TPC Sawgrass.

Woods and girlfriend Lindsey Vonn were in New York, where they attended the Met Gala – an extremely high profile fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The evening's theme was ''Punk: Chaos to Couture,'' but the couple played it straight with their wardrobe choices. Woods wore a skinny-tie tuxedo, while Vonn was attired in a long white dress. They attended the gala as guests of Vogue Magazine, which ''dressed them,'' according to Us Weekly.

Woods and Vonn confirmed that they were dating back in mid-March, and Vonn attended the Masters with Woods.
