Tiger Woods' Jogging Buddy -- He Swings Too

2/19/2010 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned the identity of the mystery person jogging with Tiger Woods in the infamous first photo -- and it turns out, Woods handpicked the guy several years ago.


The man in the blue shirt is Corey Carroll -- a 23-year-old avid golfer who Tiger plucked from obscurity to mentor several years ago.

Carroll -- who hails from Windermere, Florida, right near Tiger's home -- met the golf legend when he was 17 ... and they've been training partners ever since.

The two didn't just start jogging together for the posed photo -- according to an interview Carroll gave back in 2007, they practice and work out together nearly every day.

Tiger must not like black and Asian people. He only surrounds himself with the whitest and the blondest. Look at his jogging buddy. Look at his wife. Look at his mistresses. I don't think I've ever seen photos of him and his black best friends, or Asian mistresses.

The guy has boobs and that's why Tiger wants him around.
He has boobs because of the food in this country.
It's all contaminated with hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, etc.
