Tiger Woods -- Banner Free Saturday

4/10/2010 3:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger Woods has a lot on his mind today at the Masters -- but one thing he won't have to worry about is another embarrassing banner flying over Augusta National.

The company that was hired to arrange for the banners to take flight tells TMZ they can't find a pilot who will do the job today because no one wants to cross the FAA. As the owner put it, "No other pilot will touch it with a ten foot pole ... They're afraid the FAA will take apart their plane piece by piece."

As we reported yesterday, the FAA grounded the plane that was supposed to carry banner #3 over a "mechanical issue" -- which turned out to be a seat belt tag.

The third banner was supposed to read "You knew, Stevie...You knew" -- a reference towards
Tiger's caddy Steve Williams. We're told the fourth (should it ever see the light of day) will read: "Tiger -- Still on for the foursome? -- Jesse James."

Whoever the mystery man behind the banners is, he sure is funny.

The mystery man is hilarious and BRAVE! What has happened to free speech? Money rules everything now, Tiger's ability to earn awarded him special status pre-tabloid blow up, and it seems that this status continues thanks to Nike and TAG Heuer, the only pimps willing to stand by him!

this is complete and total BS and it's not fair. what happened to free speech? since when does tiger wood's money and political power allow him to decide what OTHER PEOPLE are allowed to say? which friend of his or his p.r. hacks shook hands with somebody to make this happen? this is bad. you do not get to take away our civil rights.

I'd love to see a flying banner "Put A Tiger In Your Tank"! But only if poor Elin couldn't see it.
