PHOTO: Fans watch Tiger Woods in creepy Tiger Woods masks

Tiger Woods has seen his fair share of oddballs follow him over the course of his career. There have probably been plenty of off-putting folks, too. These two guys fall into that latter category.

Woods was teeing off on the 17th hole in the final round of the Turkish Airlines Open on Sunday when television cameras caught these two fans watching Woods to the left side of the tee box.

There are no eye holes, so that makes it a little weird. Then add that it's a weird stare, like Woods is looking back at himself as he hits his tee shot to the next-to-last hole.

Given Woods' typical tunnel vision, he probably barely noticed. Or, if he did, he mentioned it to caddie Joe LaCava walking down the fairway.

Woods went on to birdie the 17th, but came up four shots short in winning the tournament, which Frenchman Victor Dubuisson took for his first European Tour title.
