Tiger Woods chosen as Ryder Cup wild card

  • The Ryder Cup comes to France for the first time

Love captained the U.S. team to victory in 2016, and Stricker was the winning U.S. Presidents Cup team captain a year ago.

He was outside of the world's top 1,000 this time a year ago but has climbed back into the top 30 after finishing joint sixth at The Open in July and second at last month's PGA Championship. What the 48-year-old has yet to do is win on foreign soil, and he said Tuesday he was well aware this event might represent his final opportunity to get that triumph. "It's like a football team going without their captain".

Heading into a press conference to announce three of his four wildcard picks, Furyk already had a ridiculously talented and steely collection.

American Bryson DeChambeau held tough for his second consecutive FedEx Cup playoffs victory to ensure he will top the rankings heading into the US PGA Tour's season-ending Tour Championship later this month. "I just want to get there".

In 2008, Singh finished first in the Barclays and the Deutsche Bank Championship and went on to win the FedExCup and its $10 million prize.

'I'm excited about the team this year, I'm excited to be part of the team.

DeChambeau fired a 4-under-par 67 on Monday in the final round to post a two-shot victory in the Dell Technologies Championship at TPC Boston in Norton, Mass., his second win in the first two postseason events.

"I haven't been part of the team playing-wise for six years".

"I wanted to be a part of this experience so badly that I worked twice as hard", the 24-year-old DeChambeau said Tuesday of making the Ryder Cup team.

You can see who Thomas Bjorn selects with his four captain's picks on Wednesday at 2pm (BST) - we'll be covering the announcement live on The Sportsman. "And it showed, and it paid off".

Hideki Matsuyama made seven birdies in 10 holes before he cooled and shot 65, though it at least made it easier for the Japanese star to try to get to the Tour Championship.

"He has been instrumental, not only in helping the captains before me, but me as well", Furyk said.

"When you'd be partnered with [Woods] you'd let him do all the work because he's so good", explained Phil Mickelson, who paired with Woods at the '04 Ryder Cup and went a disastrous 0-2.

Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Bubba Watson, Justin Thomas, Patrick Reed, Jordan Spieth, Webb Simpson and Rickie Fowler automatically qualified for the team. I hope that makes sense. "And naming these three players, that's what we've done". Furyk also said Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar would fill out his lineup of vice captains, joining Davis Love III and Steve Stricker.
