Woods, Mickelson, DeChambeau added to US Ryder Cup team

US Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk will name his first three wild cards on Tuesday

The 42-year-old will appear in an eighth Ryder Cup in Paris and a first since 2012, having debuted in 1997.

Mickelson has an 18-20-7 Ryder Cup record.

They join Bryson DeChambeau, the hottest player in golf, as three of the American wildcard selections.

Jim Furyk will pick the last of his wildcards after the BMW Championship, which gets underway in Pennsylvania today.

Woods only returned to competitive golf in November but has been impressive ever since, recording five top-10 finishes and missing just two halfway cuts, with sixth place in the Open at Carnoustie and second in the US PGA removing any lingering doubts about his place on team.

"Hopefully it will make it. easy for him (Furyk) to take me", Mickelson said on Monday after shooting 63 in the final round of the Dell Technologies Championship.

"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 enormous advantage and something that's quite a tremendous honour, as well", he said.

"This is most likely my last chance to go over to Europe and be part of a winning team in Europe", Mickelson said, speaking of his desire to fill the void in his record.

Woods agreed to be a vice captain in late February, and he set a goal to be in Paris on September 28-30 as a player. "It's going to be an interesting crowd", Furyk said.

"This team is young, full of guys in their 20s".

"We're all excited to see him healthy again, to see his game playing so well".

Woods has a pedestrian Ryder Cup record of 13 wins, 17 losses and three halves, though he has been stellar in singles, losing only once, on his debut in 1997.

Woods continued: "At the beginning of the year, one of my goals was to make this team". There's a lot more obligations that come around with that but it's really an honour and I want to keep doing it.

"It's going to be a great challenge because we know how strong the European side is and how well they play at home but it's a wonderful opportunity to do something I haven't been a part of in my career".

"But also, deep down, I wanted to make the team".

"It's incredible, it really is to look back at the start of the year and to have accomplished a goal like that to be part of this team, and now to be a player.as I said, it's beyond special".
