Tiger Woods, Plane Message

Tiger Woods has been receiving all sorts of messages over the past few days as he's prepared to compete in the Masters.

He's heard the voice of his deceased father in the new Nike commercial, and he's supposedly been reading Buddhist prayers on his BlackBerry. They've all be about zen, acceptance, atonement and healing.

Until now...

"Tiger: Did You Mean Bootyism?" read a note trailing behind a small plane circling above Augusta National Golf Club as the sport's fallen star teed off earlier today.

A second banner appeared a few minutes later.

"Sex Addict? Yeah. Right. Sure. Me Too!" it read.

But neither the signs nor the rousing cheers from the peanut gallery appeared to have distracted him. He kicked off the tournament with a 300-yard drive that landed right in the middle of the fairway and is playing solid golf so far.

But for us, those banners were holes in one.
