DeChambeau captures 2nd straight win in Cup playoffs

Tiger Woods chips the ball to the ninth hole during a practice round for the BMW championship golf tournament at the Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square, Pa., today.

DeChambeau, who has never played in the biennial event, finished ninth on the list, while fourteen-time major victor Tiger Woods is also likely to be included. For Mickelson, more than setting a record by playing his 12th Ryder Cup, the 48-year-old gets what he believes will be his last chance to capture that gold trophy away from home.

As expected, Furyk named Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau to the USA team that will play the Europeans Sept. 28-30 at Le Golf National outside of Paris.

And he would appear to be a shoo-in to be one of USA captain Jim Furyk's three Ryder Cup picks to be announced Tuesday.

DeChambeau, Mickelson and Woods were the next three in the US standings behind the eight players who earned automatic spots after the PGA Championship.

Norton, Mass. • Bryson DeChambeau has found the right formula for the richest part of the PGA Tour season. The Dane has some hard decisions to make before he announces his final four team members and we have analysed his potential captain's picks ahead of the announcement at 2pm on Wednesday 5 September.

The United States will be chasing their first Ryder Cup victory on European soil in 25 years when they face Europe at Le Golf National in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines outside Paris. "I'm very impressed with how he's doing it".

Bryson DeChambeau has netted a small fortune in just two weeks, with a stunning season-first on the PGA Tour sealing him a special piece of golf history.

Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Bubba Watson, Justin Thomas, Patrick Reed, Jordan Spieth, Webb Simpson and Rickie Fowler automatically qualified for the team. Perhaps Tony Finau, who's been in strong form lately, is most likely to be Furyk's final pick.

"It's been a treat to be around the Ryder Cup team, and to be able to have this honor is incredible", said DeChambeau, who has three victories in his past 10 worldwide starts.

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

Thomas Bjorn will name his captain's picks tomorrow. Woods was an assistant at Hazeltine and at the Presidents Cup last fall at Liberty National in a US route. He named David Duval, Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar as assistants to join previously announced vice captains Davis Love III and Steve Stricker.

Francesco Molinari, Justin Rose, Tyrrell Hatton, Tommy Fleetwood, Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Alex Noren and Thorbjorn Olesen will line up for the European side.
