Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Bryson DeChambeau picked for US Ryder Cup team

Tiger Woods was named to the United States' Ryder Cup team on Tuesday as captain Jim Furyk also added veteran Phil Mickelson and in-form Bryson DeChambeau to his line-up.

DeChambeau jumped clear with three consecutive birdies from the seventh hole en route to a four-under-par 67 at TPC Boston in MA.

The physics major solved all the equations and became the first player to win consecutive tournaments on the PGA Tour this season with a two-stroke victory over Justin Rose at the Dell Technologies Championship.

"I wouldn't have written it any better, to be honest with you", DeChambeau said.

DeChambeau was part of a crowded leaderboard early in the final round, with 17 players at one stage bunched within two shots.

"He's won three times so far under the age of 25, which is pretty impressive", Woods said on Sunday after being paired with DeChambeau.

"People can put that title on me, but I'm not going to, never will, because I'm just a player out here trying to do my absolute best".




"Once I was able to make that putt on 14 it pushed me forward".

DeChambeau, who started the year at No. 99 in the world, moved to No. 7, one spot past Rory McIlroy.

Matt Wallace enhanced his claims for a captain's pick after he birdied five of the last six holes to force his way into a four-man play-off, which he won with a birdie at the second extra hole. Smith was third at 13-under, a bogey at the final hole knocking him out of contention.

Whether it's DeChambeau's capacity for compartmentalization or his unwavering confidence that makes him immune to those types of external concerns - he would call those standard deviations - there' s an undercurrent of optimism that he's poised to be Woods' ideal partner. The 27-year-old Mexican did improve from No. 92 to No. 56 and into the top 70 who advance to the BMW Championship at Aronimink next week. Mickelson may be playing in his 12th Ryder Cup, but this was the first time he needed a captain's pick to be part of it. DeChambeau and Thomas, the 2017 PGA champion and last season's PGA Tour Player of the Year, are the lone rookies on the USA team.

Something unusual, such as Schauffele's winning this week's BMW Championship in Philadelphia, would have to happen for Furyk to pick anyone other than Finau.

Mickelson, who will be playing in his record 12th Ryder Cup, has made an appearance in every Ryder Cup and President's Cup since 1994.

Team USA captain Jim Furyk announced some of the last members who will be joining him at the 2018 Ryder Cup later this month on Tuesday afternoon - and, naturally, went with a pair of old favorites. "I think you have to look at the big picture through the course of the year statistically".
