Ryder Cup Announcement Held in West Conshohocken

Bryson DeChambeau reacts after putting out on the 18th hole during the final round of the Dell Technologies Championship golf tournament at TPC Boston in Norton, Mass., Monday, Sept. 3, 2018.

Tiger Woods is returning to the Ryder Cup as a player for the first time in six years. Woods closed with a 71 and tied for 24th; Mickelson, who has played on every Ryder Cup team since 1995, made nine birdies Monday in a closing round of 63.

"I really wanted to play on it", Woods said Tuesday at a news conference where Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau were also added to the US team.

The first three captain's picks made by U.S. Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk on Tuesday turned out to be about as surprising as the Jets naming of rookie Sam Darnold as their starting quarterback.

DeChambeau, who rose to the top of the FedEx Cup standings with a win last week in New Jersey, further distanced himself from the pack with another success - his third of the year.

Bryson DeChambeau has found the right formula for the richest part of the PGA Tour season.

Phil Mickelson, who is also expected to earn one of Furyk's discretionary selections, also reminded the United States captain of his credentials with a magnificent closing day 63 for a 10-under-par overall total.

All four will be playing in France for the 2018 Ryder Cup.

"It's been a fantastic two weeks", he said.

Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Patrick Reed, Bubba Watson, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler and Webb Simpson have already been confirmed in Furyk's side for Le Golf National, leaving four places up for grabs. Perhaps Tony Finau, who's been in strong form lately, is most likely to be Furyk's final pick. "We're heading over to Europe, where it's going to be an interesting, boisterous crowd". "I'm very excited about the team this year". We have some incredible players, great leadership and a really special opportunity to do something that we haven't done in a long time. His 12th appearance breaks the Ryder Cup record held by Nick Faldo. The U.S. last won away from home in 1993.

However, Woods will relinquish his vice-captain duties to focus on playing, with Furyk naming David Duval, Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar as additional vice-captains Tuesday.

Thomas Bjorn will reveal all four of his wildcard picks on Wednesday, September 5.

Meanwhile, Tyrrell Hatton, Tommy Fleetwood, Jon Rahm, Alex Noren and Thorbjorn Olesenn will be making their maiden Ryder Cup appearances.
