FedEx Cup: Bryson DeChambeau gets the rare repeat in PGA playoffs

Furyk will name his final pick on Monday, following this weekend's penultimate PGA Tour event, the BMW Championship.

Australia's Cameron Smith was third at 13-under, while 14-time major victor Tiger Woods carded an even round to finish tied for 24th at 7-under.

Mickelson, now 48, has earned spots on 12 consecutive Ryder Cup teams dating back to 1995.

As expected, Furyk named Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau to the US team that will play the Europeans Sept. 28-30 at Le Golf National outside of Paris.

DeChambeau's sensational form means he is nearly certain to be handed one of the three "captain's pick" slots for the Ryder Cup which will be revealed by USA skipper Jim Furyk on Tuesday.

DeChambeau, who rose to the top of the FedEx Cup standings with a win last week in New Jersey, further distanced himself from the pack with another success - his third of the year.

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.

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

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.

Bryson DeChambeau has netted a small fortune in just two weeks, with a stunning season-first on the PGA Tour sealing him a special piece of golf history.

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

'It is a great challenge and a strong challenge because we know how well the European team plays at home'.

Tony Finau is believed to be the leading candidate for 12th and final spot.

"It's a wonderful chance to do something that I haven't done in my career and would very much like to". He is a former U.S. Amateur champion and has already developed a bond with Woods, looking to speculation about a possible pairing in France.

However, Woods will relinquish his vice-captain duties to focus on playing, with Furyk naming David Duval, Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar as additional vice-captains Tuesday.

Captain Thomas Bjorn is set to announce his quartet of wildcard picks on Wednesday afternoon.

Furyk said Woods will no longer serve as a vice captain.

Francesco Molinari, Justin Rose, Tyrrell Hatton, Tommy Fleetwood, Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Alex Noren and Thorbjorn Olesen will line up for the European side.
