Xander Schauffele, considered the biggest challenger to Finau for the final berth, tied for third. "All the top-10 finishes, the play in the big championships and the majors, and then the current form".

The long-hitting world number 17 will be one of three rookies on the American team, along with Bryson DeChambeau and Justin Thomas.

"What an unbelievable body of work this year", Furyk said. After finishing second and a tie for fourth in the first two FedEx Cup playoff events, he ended up eighth at the BMW as he finished strong with a 5-under-par 65 in Monday's rain-delayed final round. According to the Billy Horschel rule, however, Furyk still has one more pick to make this week. Finau is the 12th man on board for the red, white and blue as this squad heads to Paris in two weeks to try and win on European soil for the first time in a quarter of a century.

"I've still got goosebumps", Finau said after tying for eighth at the BMW Championship and receiving a phone call from the U.S. Captain. "I'm so excited to be on the Ryder Cup team and I can not wait to get to Paris", he said in a short video posted on the Ryder Cup USA Twitter account. I'm excited to add him to the team.

Finau, who turns 29 on Thursday, was invited by Furyk to play as part of a small group at Le Golf National on the weekend before the British Open.

Finau, who won his only US PGA title at the 2016 Puerto Rico Open, had three top-10 major finishes this season - sharing 10th at the Masters, taking fifth at the US Open and sharing ninth at the British Open. The 28-year-old was on Monday night confirmed as America's final wildcard for this month's Ryder Cup.

Inbox by Gmail will be shut down in March 2019
Fortunately, because Inbox requires a Gmail account to use, all the messages in their Inbox account are also still on Gmail. When I reviewed Inbox back in 2014 I quickly realized that the service was not something that I wanted to use.

They are Brooks Koepka, Patrick Reed, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Bubba Watson, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler and Webb Simpson. Throw in Woods and Mickelson, and that gives the US team a lineup that has combined for 31 majors.

"I look forward to the opportunity to help the United States of America bring the Cup back".
