  • Mickelson is having to rely on a wild card for the first time in his career after failing to qualify

Yesterday, US captain Jim Furyk named the first three of his wildcard picks, opting for Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau.

"I've put a lot into this, so to be confirmed as part of this team is fantastic", said Casey, who has amassed five points from his nine matches in the competition and remains the last European player to make a Ryder Cup hole-in-one, a feat he achieved on day two in 2006.

Mickelson, 48, will compete in the tournament for a record 12th time, having made his Ryder Cup debut back in 1995.

Tour equipment vans shouldn't expect a run on single-length clubs anytime soon, but consider that DeChambeau now has the same number of Tour victories as Rickie Fowler and more than Jon Rahm, two of the game's predetermined stars.

Furyk will announce his final captain's pick next Monday to complete the 12-man team.

England's Poulter, a talisman for Europe in past Ryder Cups, has returned to form this year after missing the 2016 defeat by the United States at Hazeltine.

There were no surprises when Furyk revealed his selections in Philadelphia, as the trio had virtually picked themselves - DeChambeau for his recent form and Woods and Mickelson for their vast experience in the event.

Hurricane season is back with a possible storm 'as strong as Ophelia'
As a result, I would expect these modeled surf heights to change from day to day in the near term, perhaps quite significantly. But there is plenty of Atlantic Hurricane Season left, which does not come to an end until November 30.

"This is mostly likely my last chance to go over to Europe and to be a part of a winning USA team in Europe".

After starting the year at No. 99 in the world, DeChambeau moved to No. 7 with the win Monday, one spot past Rory McIlroy.

"It's an extremely strong USA team", Poulter said, "but when you look at the European team on paper, I am getting goosebumps just talking about it". "I set out this year on really a strong commitment and journey to get on the team". I got off to a great start this year.

Earlier, Marc Leishman carded two late birdies in his 71 that, while dropping him to 21 today, was good enough to rise to 22 overall on the FedEx Cup standings and effectively ensure his place in Atlanta, as well. Finau joined Dustin Johnson as the only players with double-digit top-10 finishes this season on the PGA Tour.

DeChambeau barely missed becoming an automatic qualifier, finishing ninth in the standings, and he locked up a spot by excelling in the past two PGA tournaments, which were playoff events for the FedEx Cup. For the continent to wrestle back the trophy these wildcards will be under pressure to repay the faith shown by their captain. He knows what I can bring to the team.

Woods will no longer be a vice captain, though Furyk said he would continue to lean on his advice.

"I obviously wanted to make it by myself [and] unfortunately it hasn't been the year I was hoping for", Garcia said. "And naming these three players, that's what we've done".
