No surprises when it comes to 3 US Ryder Cup captain's picks

  • Danny Lee had a day of struggles in the third round of the latest US PGA Tour event in Boston

It's only slightly less evident that the two will be paired together in Paris, which is also notable considering that Woods hasn't played the matches since 2012 and has never really found a go-to partner.

In addition to an incredible body of experience and his ability to lead, Mickelson can deliver something else this US team could use: Quality putting. He has a 13-17-3 record. So hopefully if I do make it this year that all things considered I'd be more comfortable when I got there.

"So fortunate also that it's the day before the Ryder Cup picks, although I don't feel that should be a bearing", Mickelson said. This year's captain, Furyk, said he was impressed not only that DeChambeau won back-to-back titles, but by the method in which he won. In 2017, Australian Marc Leishman shot 67 to capture his third PGA TOUR victory.

Typically, pro-am fields - which consist of around 50 players who are grouped with amateurs paying for the privilege - are determined based on the previous year's FedEx Cup points list, along with a few sponsor invitations.

The 14-time major victor will be replaced as a vice-captain when selected and will look to improve on his poor record in the event, which has seen him win 13, lose 17 and halve three of his 33 matches.

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.

He said numerous "terrorists" are in the country's last rebel stronghold, leading to a "general destabilisation of the situation". The Syrian civil war has killed hundreds of thousands of civilians and forced millions to seek refuge inside and outside Syria.

Woods only returned to competitive golf in November but has been impressive ever since, recording five top-10 finishes and missing just two halfway cuts, with sixth place in the Open at Carnoustie and second in the US PGA removing any lingering doubts about his place on team.

If recent results mean anything, Finau added, "I think I'm going to be a hard guy to look past".

Former world number one Woods had already been assured of a trip to Paris for the September 28-30 showdown with Europe after being named as one of Furyk's non-playing vice-captains.

When Mickelson, 48, won in Mexico in the March to end a five-year winless drought, he thought it would be a certainty he'd be on the team.

DeChambeau tasted victory at the Dell Technologies Championship by two strokes on Monday, one week after sailing to victory by four strokes at The Northern Trust. "We have some incredible players and a special opportunity to do something we haven't done in a long time".

The eight Americans who qualified on their own were Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Rickie Fowler, Bubba Watson, Webb Simpson and Patrick Reed. "It's a well-rounded team, and we'll go to work, get set to go".
