Awkward: Tiger Woods Kicked Out Of US Ryder Cup Team Photo

Tiger Woods, who is the vice captain of the U.S. golf squad for the Ryder Cup, forgot he is no longer “in” the team – and it lead to an embarrassing photocall.



Well, this was embarrassing.

For more than a year, Tiger Woods, one of the greatest golf players of all time, has been missing in action due to back problems.

While Woods is a vice-captain for the United States team in the Ryder Cup, he is no longer playing in the tournament — a fact that he seemed to have forgotten when the 12 team members, along with their captain Davis Love III, assembled for a photo call before practice at Hazeltine.

As the one time number one golf player tried to get into the group portrait, the photographer told him to move away.

However, instead of leaving, a confused Woods switched sides, which prompted the photographer to tell him, yet again, that he had to get out of the photo.

The awkward situation generated a few chuckles from the players and Woods, who is not particularly famous for being humorous, laughed along with them before saluting the photographer.

”I forgot I wasn’t playing,” joked Woods later, according to

Woods was, however, included in another portrait that included players as well as the vice-captains.
