DeChambeau shoots 63, gets Tiger's vote for Ryder Cup

Tiger Woods returns to Ryder Cup as wild card

Tiger Woods returns to Ryder Cup as wild card

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.

For Mickelson, this will be his record 12th Ryder Cup team, eclipsing the record of 11 he shared with Nick Faldo.

He earned the first-place check of $1.62 million and eliminated any lingering doubt that Jim Furyk will take him as one of his captain's picks for the U.S. Ryder Cup team.

DeChambeau, 24, had virtually guaranteed himself one of the captain's picks after storming to victory in the opening two legs of the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup playoff series, winning the Northern Trust and Dell Technologies Championship.

And the final wildcard slot will be announced after BMW the Championships on Monday, September 10 at 2pm BST (9am ET).

"This is most likely my last chance to go to be a part of a winning USA team in Europe, and obviously the one thing that has been missing for our team has been to go over to Europe and win, " Mickelson said.

"There was a lot of resistance moving up through the ranks", said the former Southern Methodist star who won 2015 NCAA Division I and U.S. Amateur championships, "but once I won a few events on the junior level and made it to the U.S. Amateur, made it to the U.S. Open, it started to progress in the right direction".

The woman was captured on the surveillance camera of the house she rang in the Sunrise Ranch area of Montgomery , Texas. I suppose it's good news in that she is safe , but who knows what kind of hellish ordeal came before her rescue.

'It is a great challenge and a strong challenge because we know how well the European team plays at home'. It's a tournament that we're going to miss a little bit.

'Lo and behold I'm part of this team.

Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Patrick Reed, Bubba Watson, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler and Webb Simpson were the eight automatic qualifiers for the American team, with Furyk's picks the three immediately below them in the qualification standings. "But it's a wonderful chance, an opportunity for us to do something I haven't done or been a part of in my career, and would very much like to". Woods was an assistant at Hazeltine and at the Presidents Cup last fall at Liberty National in a USA route.

European captain Thomas Bjorn has named Paul Casey, Sergio Garcia.

Woods will no longer be a vice captain, though Furyk said he would continue to lean on his advice. Furyk also said Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar would fill out his lineup of vice captains, joining Davis Love III and Steve Stricker.

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