Ryder Cup 2018: Furyk's U.S. team profiled

After a week of speculation and Chinese whispers, which was further heightened by the rain delay at the BMW Championship, America captain Jim Furyk opted to select the big-hitting Tony Finau as his fourth pick.

He came in eighth at the BMW Championship, whilst Xander Schauffele came in tied third, so Xander must be really sore at not getting the final pick.

The U.S. roster for the tournament, which will take place September 28-30 outside Paris, was determined by automatic qualifiers based off rankings after the PGA Championship. "All those top-10 finishes, the play in big championships and the majors, and then his current form, a second, a fourth and an eighth in the playoffs". According to the Billy Horschel rule, however, Furyk still has one more pick to make this week.

Finau said he was thrilled to join a Ryder Cup team that includes nine major champions.

He made the remarks while meeting Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the Eastern Economic Forum in Russian Federation . Suga also said Putin had not mentioned the proposal during a summit meeting with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Monday.

"I've still got goosebumps", Finau said. "I'm so excited to be on the Ryder Cup team and I can not wait to get to Paris". I'm excited to add him to the team.

Last week Jim Furyk, the USA team captain, used three of his four captain's picks to add Bryson DeChambeau, Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods to the roster. The team dominated the Ryder Cup last time around and might even be deeper this year, making the team a worthwhile play on the betting lines.

The 28-year-old placed in the top 10 at three of this year's majors - only missing out at the US PGA Championship - but his last win on the PGA Tour came back in 2016.

It's an incredible achievement for Finau, who grew up playing golf in Rose Park. Finau, who has one career PGA Tour victory, said he was ready for the pressure of the Ryder Cup. "I can't wait to get to Paris".
