Tiger, Phil, DeChambeau named to U.S. Ryder Cup team

Tiger, Phil, DeChambeau named to U.S. Ryder Cup team

"This year to have the honour to be able to play again is beyond special".

That led to sweeping changes in the US structure, mainly by giving players a stronger voice. "But it could have been a lot more hard".

Jim Furyk will pick the last of his wildcards after the BMW Championship, which gets underway in Pennsylvania today. "I set out this year on really a strong commitment and journey to get on the team".

"It's great being No. 1 in the FedExCup Play-Offs and it's is something that I've dreamed of, especially going into East Lake, that's a very large advantage and something that's quite a tremendous honour, as well", he said.

DeChambeau, Mickelson and Woods finished ninth, 10th and 11th in qualifying, with DeChambeau winning the first two FedEx Cup play-off events in the past fortnight.

In addition, the Woods-Mickelson duo are easily the top two needle movers when it comes to ticket sales and television ratings.

Donald Trump Calls Out Nike for Colin Kaepernick Ad
"I mean, let's put it this way, their name is in the paper and people are talking about it", he said . So it's no surprise that Conley had some thoughtful insight on Nike's polarizing advertisement.

"To see the way he worked through that, came out, hit the ground running, won his first two Playoff events at both The Northern Trust and Dell, just incredible", Furyk noted.

"I wanted to be a part of this experience so badly that I worked twice as hard", DeChambeau said.

Tony Finau is believed to be the leading candidate for 12th and final spot.

And while DeChambeau admits to being a "little tired", he is eager to take on Aronimink Golf Club course that played host to the 1962 PGA Championship and more-recently the PGA Tour's 2010 and 2011 AT & T National.

During the FedEx Cup playoffs, he was runner-up at one event and tied for fourth at the other.

European captain Thomas Bjorn will name his four captain's picks on Wednesday to complete the home team. Throw in Woods and Mickelson, and that gives the USA team a lineup that has combined for 31 majors.

Smokey and the Bandit star Burt Reynolds has died
In his 2015 memoir But Enough About Me , Reynolds admitted that he missed many opportunities over years. As news of the star's death broke, fans took to Twitter to express the grief for Reynolds' death.

"We're heading over into foreign soil".

"The first thing is that I'm a little exhausted, not going to lie", said DeChambeau.

Here, we look at the credentials of the three captain's choices.

Woods will no longer be a vice captain, though Furyk said he would continue to lean on his advice.

The American skipper did not pull any surprises, although he did confirm Woods would now relinquish his role as a vice-captain, with David Duval, Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar given the responsibility.
