DeChambeau shoots 63, gets Tiger's vote for Ryder Cup

Danny Lee had a day of struggles in the third round of the latest US PGA Tour event in Boston

The addition of Dechambeau - World No.7 - and the combined 19 Majors of Woods (14) and Mickelson (5) gives some extra swagger, as if it was needed, to this USA team.

Furyk, who was allotted four discretionary wild card picks to complete the team, will make his final selection on Monday.

Woods, Mickelson and DeChambeau will be joined by one more of Furyk's captain's picks which will be announced Monday.

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.

Re-joined the European Tour specifically to play in this year's match, a decision Bjorn influenced.

Mickelson was also an integral part of the "task force" that dominated headlines two years ago at Hazeltine Golf Club. However, after a fourth surgical procedure on his back and a lengthy recovery, he has been able to compete in 16 PGA events in 2018, accumulating five top-10 finishes, including second place at the PGA Championship, plus a sixth-place showing at the British Open.

Love captained the U.S. team to victory in 2016, and Stricker was the winning U.S. Presidents Cup team captain past year.

Furyk heaped praise on the trio, particularly 14-times major champion Woods, who will now relinquish his role as a vice-captain.

Mickelson, 48, will be making a record 12th appearance in the event, moving past European great Nick Faldo. A birdie on the final hole would have given the 27-year-old Mexican a tie for third and a reasonable chance at going to the Tour Championship. "It's like a football team going in without their captain". "I just want to get there". And lo and behold, I'm a part of this team. DeChambeau, Mickelson and Woods were the next three in the US standings behind the eight players who earned automatic spots after the PGA Championship.

DeChambeau closed with a 4-under 67 for a two-shot victory on the TPC Boston, becoming only the second player in the 12 years of the lucrative FedEx Cup to win the opening two playoff events.

"I've played very, very good golf in the last three, four, five years and put the Ryder Cup in the crosshairs and made it a very big goal". For the continent to wrestle back the trophy these wildcards will be under pressure to repay the faith shown by their captain.

Finau is in strong consideration to become one of the four captain's picks for the U.S. Ryder Cup team.

Furyk lost out on Woods' as vice-captain, due to his inclusion, but has added David Duval, Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar to his team.
