Tony Finau added to US Ryder Cup team as captain's pick

"He has an unbelievable body of work this year", said Furyk, a Ponte Vedra Beach resident. "I'm in a position where I feel like a win is the only way I'd even be in consideration", Schauffele said. Played good in big moments.

"All the emotions that come with accomplishing something like that ... it's a dream come true for me".

Tiger Woods, a 14-time major champion back on form after spinal fusion surgery, was named a captain's pick last week along with left-hander Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau.

Given Europe's recent dominance in this event before its loss in 2016 and the fact that this year's event is being played in France, you could certainly make a case for taking Europe on the golf odds.

It's an incredible achievement for Finau, who grew up playing golf in Rose Park. Finau is ranked third on the FedEx Cup standings after an incredibly consistent season on the PGA Tour, with three runner-up finishes and 11 top 10 finishes this season. "I got the goose bumps when [Furyk] told me, and I'm excited to add my skills and talent to the team - a team that's stacked already".

Tony Finau plays his shot from the fourth tee during the third round of the BMW Championship golf tournament at Aronimink GC.

"I look forward to the opportunity to help the US bring the Cup back".
