This is going to go down as one of the best “LMAO” moments in sports this year. A few days ago, it was reported by my main man Adam Fonseca (@chicagoduffer) that Tiger Woods said something odd for someone who acts the way he does. Billy Horschel did an interview with my other main man Jason Sobel (Who I had the privilege of speaking with some months ago during an interview) about his “buddy ol pal” relationship with Tiger Woods. Billy has played some great golf and in this video below, he is showing off his workout routine which includes 42-inch box jumps.
However, let’s just say Mr. Woods had a laugh with him at the driving range.
“I’m out there warming up and Tiger is on the range, and he comes over and he’s got this big, goofy-ass grin on his face,” Horschel told Jason Sobel of GolfChannel.com. “I said, ‘What are you effing smiling at? What do you got that effing grin for?’ He’s like, ‘It’s true.’ I said, ‘What’s true?’ He said, ‘White men can’t jump.'”
*Long applause from an imaginary crowd*
Good job Tiger! Honestly, I would never have thought Tiger would say something like this! Quickly! Everyone must run into town and tell all the land! today is a glorious day my friends! We shall dine like Gods! Oh, and white men can jump but it’s rare, most white dudes are terrific shooters in basketball. It’s like football, you don’t see too many white mobile QB’s out there. DON’T WORRY, don’t feel offended, it’s all part of the joke my friends (I’m half white and black mind you) but I had to write this because Tiger seems like the very last person on earth to say that.
Probably the funniest thing about this was that I was thinking to myself “Sooo, what did he do? Tell Billy that white men can’t jump and just walk away?”. Totally funny. Way to go Tiger, way to go! Oh and I LOVE Billy’s response to the grin. Shows the kind of humor Billy has. Love a story like this. Shows that these guys have some great humor out on the course. Somebody start the slow clap!
