After his top-5 finishes in the first two events, Finau shot a final-round 65 on Monday to tie for eighth at the BMW Championship while Xander Schauffele, making a late run at a pick, finished one shot out of a playoff.

Jim Furyk has confirmed the last of his four captain's picks, and it's going to be Tony Finau.

The U.S. roster for the tournament, which will take place September 28-30 outside Paris, was determined by automatic qualifiers based off rankings after the PGA Championship.

Finau, is only the third rookie in Jim Furyk's ranks as the U.S. try to win on foreign soil for the first time in 25 years.

Eight other United States players made the roster after last month's PGA Championship after a two-year qualifying period - Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Patrick Reed, Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Webb Simpson, Rickie Fowler and Bubba Watson.

"I'm so excited to be on the Ryder Cup team", Finau said.

They will then visit New Zealand and finally end the two-week trip in Sydney, Australia, the palace said. Samantha Markle has taken to her Twitter account to slam the Duchess of Sussex as the "DuchASS".


"I've still got goosebumps", Finau said after receiving a phone call from Furyk. "I can play with anyone. And I'm playing some good golf, some world-class golf".

Regardless of which player is chosen for the final spot, the US should have a strong team heading into Paris. Furyk had known about Finau's prodigious length -Finau ranks third on the PGA Tour in driving distance, at 316.3 yards - but the captain walked away having watched a player who has plenty of game beyond his length. "The final Captain's Pick is in".

Justin Rose's consolation for losing a sudden-death play-off at the BMW to Keegan Bradley was becoming the world No 1, overtaking Johnson.

Being included in the high-profile competition is a major breakthrough for Finau, who will turn 29 on Friday and is completing his fourth season on the PGA Tour.

The Ryder Cup takes place outside Paris from 28-30
September.
