Furyk had already confirmed Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau as three of his picks but chose to wait until after the conclusion of the BMW Championship to confirm his fourth and final one.

"I'm so excited to be on the Ryder Cup team, and I can not wait to get to Paris", said Finau. According to the Billy Horschel rule, however, Furyk still has one more pick to make this week.

The 28-year-old from Utah completes the 12-man American lineup that will defend the trophy against Europe in the biennial team golf showdown on September 28-30 at Le Golf National in France. Played good in big moments.

Team USA also includes Rickie Fowler, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Patrick Reed, Webb Simpson, Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas and Bubba Watson.

"For the week, I've only made eight [actually seven] birdies, and that's not going to get it done", Woods said. Throw in Woods and Mickelson, and that gives the US team a lineup that has combined for 31 majors. And I let the guys on the team know that I'd be a great pick and I'd be ready to go.

The other main contender for the final spot, Xander Schauffele, was expected by some to grab the final spot if he won the BMW tournament, but he just missed out on a playoff by one shot and tied for third place.

Tony Finau has been granted the last golden ticket.

"I am definitely not shy to smell the roses when I can, and especially at this time, it's hard not to look back at where I came from and the humble beginning I grew up in", Finau said. I've spoken to my dad and my wife, the people that have supported me, and it's an incredible feeling.

"Hopefully I bring something to the team that can help us bring that Cup back".
