DeChambeau makes it two straight wins in FedEx Cup playoffs

Matt Kuchar failed to advance beyond the second playoff event for the first time in 10 years, meaning he won't get another chance to state his case as a potential Ryder Cup pick.

For Woods, it's the culmination of a comeback that began in January after a fourth surgery on his lower back.

Five-time major victor Phil Mickelson is also hotly tipped to be included for what would be a record 12th Ryder Cup - England's Nick Faldo is the only other player to compete in 11.

Le Golf National outside Paris will play host to the 2018 tournament, with Thomas Bjorn's European team looking to win back the trophy they lost in America in 2016.

The U.S. will defend the Cup at the September 28-30 event against Europe at Le National in Paris. And lo and behold, I'm a part of this team. "I'm very impressed with how he's doing it".

But Southgate says he would like "more competition" for the position - especially with Butland now playing in the Championship. Southgate said: "They have got to play in games where there are consequences if they do not win.


Mickelson has never been on a winning team in his five Cup appearances in Europe. His last time overseas was at Gleneagles, where he infamously closed out a losing press conference by questioning captain Tom Watson and the direction the PGA of America was taking the US team. His role won't change much but he will be a player.

The 48-year-old reminded Furyk of his quality with a dazzling eight-under-par 63 in the final round of the Dell Technologies Championship on Monday. "We haven't done that in 25 years", Mickelson said. I got off to a great start this year.

"I haven't been part of the team playing-wise for six years", Woods said. 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. "But it could have been a lot more hard". Mickelson won another World Golf Championship in March, though he hasn't seriously contended since then. The event is the one being removed as the FedEx Cup playoffs are shortened from four events to three.

Norton, Mass. • Bryson DeChambeau has found the right formula for the richest part of the PGA Tour season. "And it showed, and it paid off". Perhaps Tony Finau, who's been in strong form lately, is most likely to be Furyk's final pick.

There was plenty of good golf played on Monday, but no one really put any pressure on the suddenly rampaging DeChambeau.

During the FedEx Cup playoffs, he was runner-up at one event and tied for fourth at the other. He declined to speak with media after his round, but is still a prime candidate to earn a captain's pick for the Ryder Cup.

The eight automatic qualifiers for Team USA were confirmed last month with Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Patrick Reed, Bubba Watson, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler and Webb Simpson all playing under Furyk's leadership.

After a penalty drop, Smith couldn't recover to make par and fell one behind Rose into third and leaving the stage for a relatively stress-free walk up the last for DeChambeau.

'We have some incredible players and a really special opportunity to do something we haven't done in a long time.

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