    United States vice-captain Tiger Woods smiles with United States' Phil Mickelson before a practice round for the Ryder Cup golf tournament Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2016, at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minnesota. It took some prodding to remind Woods that this year he wasn't one of the players.

    Tiger Woods is new to this role as vice captain at the Ryder Cup. Or maybe he thought he was still playing.

    The American team gathered for its official photo on Tuesday, and Woods took his spot on the far left side of the back row. The person in charge of arranging the players pointed to the other side, so Woods went to the far right end of the players.

    Not far enough.

    He eventually realized the photo was only for the 12 players. Woods exited stage right, laughing at his own gaffe.
