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.

Interracial facial    

Tiger needs to do something to add some offbeat humor to the situation since there are golf snob critics who will never forgive him due to the built-in elitist intolerance of the sport. What he should do is wear a scarlet letter "A" for adulterer and only take it off when he breaks Jack Nicklaus' majors record. Fair enough?

Adultery is no joking matter. The Bible forbids it in the Ten Commandments. Let's not make light of it please.

Black people do not like other black people.For a black guy to go with a black woman is like to degenerate the race while a white woman enhances the race.I see it in Miami Beach all the time.Black guys prefer blondes over black woman all the time.It is shameful that black guys feel that way.Each race should stay with its own.

My God, TMZ...it's all Tiger all the time! When you decide to get stuck on a topic, you're like a dog with a bone...you won't let it go. I will say, though, that I'd rather you cover Tiger over that Tila Tequilla idiot.

This is porndog Tiger's new wingman. He is the one that is being trained like an FBI agent to set up super-dee-duper secret rendezvous for the man whore.

TMZ/Harvey,

Are you sure it's a dude? Normally, I would trust you guys but I still remember the whole JFK/Playboy pic fiasco. Seriously, it looks like a butch lesbian instead.

@# 5, tooo funny.
Goes to show, you can jog all day but if you keep on eating everything it may not look like it. Tiger evidently does combinations because his body is pretty fit looking.

@#11, they dont count, they do the same thing.

@#20. They may think that all they want, but at the end of the day, their white wives will give birth to wait a minute: more BLACK WOMEN! HAH!! They cant get away from it no matter what they do. Think that is why interracial kids are coming out darker and darker and with coarser hair because of this "I'm doing better because I'm with a white chick" attitude. They even have to go to a black woman to do their kids hair, no way out of it. Their daughters most likely grow up to marry black men and produce more BLACK WOMEN, HAH! And they cant date these black men if the black woman didnt give birth to them and raise them when half of their fathers bailed, which is the real problem for majority of this thinking, not all. That's whats ironic to me about that ridiculous attitude they have. So snub black women all they want, if it wasnt for the black women that hung in there, neither one of them would be able to enjoy the other. They are the idiots! Funny.
