TPC Boston - Bryson DeChambeau wins 2 straight in FedEx Cup playoffs

For Woods, it'll be his eighth appearance and first since 2012.

Dream team: Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods.

DeChambeau is the first person to win the first two tournaments in the FedEx Cup since 2008, when a different points system allowed Vijay Singh to effectively wrap up the title before the final playoff event.

Woods and Mickelson were considered locks to make the USA team, as of the PGA Championship in mid-August. "He's not making that many mistakes, and if he does, I talked to him over the past couple of months, he's missing the ball in the correct spots, and that makes all the difference".

Finau is hoping to become a Ryder Cup rookie, but he already has worldwide experience after playing in the Junior Ryder Cup in 2004 and '06.

"I was leaking oil a little bit", said DeChambeau, who after bogeying the 13th steadied the ship by sinking a five-footer to save par at the next.

That might be the understatement of the PGA Tour season.

"Absolutely", Woods said. "To have an opportunity to go to Europe and to have an opportunity to win a Ryder Cup, and we haven't done it in 25 years over there, and to be part of this group of guys to have that opportunity to go there, it's exciting, it really is".

Who is Bruce Ohr, whose name keeps appearing in Trump’s tweets?
Ohr's relationship with his wife and his interactions with Steele tie him loosely to the Russian Federation investigation. The materials were not among 800,000 pages of documents provided by the Justice Department to their panels, they said.

The selection marks a superb turnaround for the 14-time Major victor and former world number one, considering he was originally named as one of Furyk's vice-captains. The sight of Tiger Woods in form, and in contention, on a Sunday scares golfers like no other. "At this moment going forward, though, I'm just going to keep going about my business and doing what I can do". Furyk also said Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar would fill out his lineup of vice captains, joining Davis Love III and Steve Stricker. "I wanted to be a part of that atmosphere and get comfortable with that".

A week ago he boat-raced the field at the playoff opener by four strokes, a signature moment for a player who - despite two victories in two seasons on Tour - was still very much an unknown commodity.

It is his fourth win of the season and second in as many weeks after winning the Northern Trust last week.

"I think we could be a great team out there".

The final United States wildcard looks set to go to Tony Finau.

The eight automatic qualifiers have been confirmed: Thorbjorn Olesen joins Francesco Molinari, Justin Rose, Tyrrell Hatton, Tommy Fleetwood, Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy and Alex Noren on the European team.

Europe are set to name their four wildcards today, with Ian Poulter, Sergio Garcia, Henrik Stenson and Paul Casey all fancied to make the cut.
