Billy Horschel is one of the more outgoing storytellers on tour so it's no surprise he shared this gem about Tiger Woods with Jason Sobel of Golf Channel.

Horschel first told Sobel about how surprised he was that Woods knew who he was at the 2010 AT&T National but the two have since become friendly.

Then last year Woods started making fun of Horschel's athleticism.

"Horschel was featured during a segment on 'Inside the PGA Tour' showing his workout regimen, which includes 42-inch box jumps. Woods couldn’t resist the opportunity to give him some needling the next morning at Bay Hill.

"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," he recalls. "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.'"

You can see the box jump video above (start at 0:55) and there's a great ending to the entire exchange you'll have to read at Golf Channel.

I feel like Tiger does stuff like this more often than we know about because he never opens up to the public or the media. A great story, though, and a great piece on Horschel.
