WATCH: Tiger Woods kicked out of 2016 U.S. Ryder Cup team picture


Both the European and U.S. Ryder Cup teams took their respective team pictures on Tuesday morning at Hazeltine National, site of the 2016 matches.

And American vice-captain Tiger Woods fell right into an old habit of standing in for the team picture. The problem is that vice-captains aren't included in that photo, just the 12 guys actually playing in the matches.

So, not once, but twice, Woods was shooed away out of the lens -- first from trying to stand stage left in the second row of the players, then again as he tried to stand on stage right of the picture. He eventually was kicked out of the shot, with him and new vice-captain Bubba Watson having a good laugh about the whole thing.

Old habits die hard, Tiger. However, Woods has to feel like he's practically a player with how much effort he's put into the American game plan. As captain Davis Love III said, Woods is the U.S. "tactician."
