Matt Kuchar failed to advance beyond the second playoff event for the first time in 10 years, meaning he won't get another chance to state his case as a potential Ryder Cup pick.

Woods's superb comeback after recovering from...

"I really wanted to play on it", Woods said Tuesday at a news conference where Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau were also added to the USA team. And lo and behold, I'm a part of this team.

Who will make US Ryder Cup team?

He has not played, however, on a winning team in Europe, where the USA has not triumphed since 1993.

Early in DeChambeau's final round, he was one of five golfers tied for the lead at 13 under, but he seized sole possession of the lead for good by birdieing seven, eight and nine to finish his first nine in 4 under. "We haven't done that in 25 years", Mickelson said. "That was really the reason why I went there". I got off to a great start this year.

'I'm excited about the team this year, I'm excited to be part of the team.

Mickelson and DeChambeau filled the other two captain's picks announced by Furyk on Tuesday. "But it could have been a lot more hard".

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson (64), Bubba Watson (66), Rafa Cabrera Bello of Spain (68), Emillano Grillo of Argentina (70) and third-round leader Abraham Ancer of Mexico (73) finished tied for seventh at 11 under. Mickelson won another World Golf Championship in March, though he hasn't seriously contended since then.

DeChambeau is assured of holding the No. 1 spot in the FedEx Cup standings when the Tour Championship begins at East Lake in Atlanta later this month. Dechambeau, who now leads the FedEx Cup playoffs, has moved to No. 7 in the world.

DeChambeau, who'll be playing in his first Ryder Cup, made Furyk's choice a no-brainer by winning the past two FedEx Cup events, the Northern Trust at Ridgewood Country Club and the Dell Technologies Championship outside of Boston.

European captain Thomas Bjorn has named Paul Casey, Sergio Garcia. "It's going to be an interesting crowd".

"At the beginning of the year that was one of my goals, to make this team. And naming these three players, that's what we've done".

Furyk said Woods will no longer serve as a vice captain. The U.S. last won away from home in 1993.
