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.

I was so hoping stories about this guy would just die off. The guy is just another dunb jock who got caught cheating on his wife. Another cheater with a god complex who thought he could get away with it because of his name and what he does. If the PGA had any cahoonies they'd ban him for soiling the reputation of professional golf, but because he is their big money draw they won't. Says alot about the morales America has sunk to.

#35 Bebefi... Makes you wonder what would happen if Black women refused to reproduce with Black men. Hmmmm. Eventually the race would be so watered down it would become extinct. No more dark chocolate brothers (damn!)---nothing left for the white woman---who would be the fastest man in the world--the NFL,NBA? Maybe that's what they're going for.
