Woods named in US Ryder Cup team

Tiger Woods right and Phil Mickelson were added to the U.S. Ryder Cup team on Wednesday by captain Jim Furyk. Bryson DeChambeau who has won the first two Fed Ex Cup playoff events was also added to the team

Australia's Cameron Smith was third at 13-under, while 14-time major victor Tiger Woods carded an even round to finish tied for 24th at 7-under.

Woods, who has not played a Ryder Cup since 2012, revealed that he had set himself the target of making the USA team at the start of the season.

Tiger Woods was named to the United States' Ryder Cup team on Tuesday as captain Jim Furyk also added veteran Phil Mickelson and in-form Bryson DeChambeau to his line-up.

The 24-year-old native of Modesto, California, carded a 4-under 67 on Monday to finish at 16-under 268 and win the Dell Technologies Championship by two shots.

Furyk will announce his final captain's pick next Monday to complete the 12-man team.

The 2018 Ryder Cup takes place September 25-30 in Paris. Perhaps Tony Finau, who's been in strong form lately, is most likely to be Furyk's final pick.

DeChambeau is the first man since 2008 to win the opening two FedEx Cup tournaments. The idea is to find the hottest player to fill out the team, and no one has been close to DeChambeau over the last two weeks. "We're heading over to Europe, where it's going to be an interesting, boisterous crowd".

The bookmakers have had their work cut out in pricing up the odds for Thomas Bjorn's potential wildcard picks for the European Ryder Cup team to take on US later this month.

Mickelson had qualified for every team since 1995, a streak that ended this year when he finished No. 10 in the standings.

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. "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". He is a former U.S. Amateur champion and has already developed a bond with Woods, looking to speculation about a possible pairing in France.

Furyk announced he'll replace Woods as vice captain, naming David Duval, Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar to join previously announced vice captains Davis Love III and Steve Stricker.

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

Bjorn's team consists of Francesco Molinari, Justin Rose, Tyrell Hatton, Tommy Fleetwood, Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Alex Noren and Thorbjorn Olesen. 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.
