Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson make U.S. Ryder Cup team

Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson make U.S. Ryder Cup team

On a day when the temperature reached 91 degrees at TPC Boston with a heat index of 100, Bryson DeChambeau proved to be the hottest golfer on the planet.

The matches are September 28-30 outside Paris. "And I'll say that every single time", he said. He had not played competitive golf in a year, the result of his fourth back surgery.

Ryder Cup Form: Pieters was Europe's top points scorer on debut in 2016 as he won four and lost only one of his five matches. 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. "It's like a football team going without their captain".

Bjorn has taken a huge gamble on Garcia, one that could hinder Europe's chances of winning the Ryder Cup. "We haven't done that in 25 years", Mickelson said. "I'm very delighted with this team and I'm very proud to be captain for these 12 players". "I just want to get there".

Though Woods has not won since 2013, he finished runner up at the Valspar Championship and PGA Championship this season.

DeChambeau earned a spot on the team thanks to three wins this year (Memorial Tournament, The Northern Trust and Dell Technologies Championship).

Casey has not been a part of Team Europe since making his third appearance in the defeat at Valhalla in 2008, and he was controversially overlooked for the 2010 team by Colin Montgomerie when the Englishman was inside the top 10 in the world rankings. For the continent to wrestle back the trophy these wildcards will be under pressure to repay the faith shown by their captain. Tony Finau is considered the leading candidate.

United States and Canada Trade Talks to Resume Next Week
The Trump administration's notification to negotiate, Meyer told Business Insider, included both Canada and Mexico . Mr Trump says the body too often rules against the USA , although he concedes it has won some recent judgments.

Stenson has been struggling with an elbow injury since just before the British Open in July and has broken 70 only three times in 20 attempts at Le Golf National, where he hasn't played since 2012.

Hideki Matsuyama made seven birdies in 10 holes before he cooled and shot 65, though it at least made it easier for the Japanese star to try to get to the Tour Championship.

During the FedEx Cup playoffs, he was runner-up at one event and tied for fourth at the other. Still to be determined was whether former Masters champion Sergio Garcia, who failed to qualify for the FedEx Cup playoffs, gets a nod.

The eight automatic qualifiers were Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Patrick Reed, Bubba Watson, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler and Webb Simpson.

There were no surprises when Furyk revealed his selections in Philadelphia, as the trio had virtually picked themselves - DeChambeau for his recent form and Woods and Mickelson for their vast experience in the event. "It's going to be an interesting crowd".

"I'm hoping that I'm one of them".
