US Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk will name his first three wild cards on Tuesday and appears to initially have a far more straightforward decision than European counterpart Thomas Bjorn. Mickelson may be playing in his 12th Ryder Cup, but this was the first time he needed a captain's pick to be part of it. DeChambeau and Thomas, the 2017 PGA champion and last season's PGA Tour Player of the Year, are the lone rookies on the US team. Furyk makes his fourth selection after the BMW Championship.
This was the 16th and final year of the Boston area being an annual stop on the PGA Tour. It's only slightly less evident that the two will be paired together in Paris, which is also notable considering that Woods hasn't played the matches since 2012 and has never really found a go-to partner.
For the second straight week in the richest part of the PGA Tour season, DeChambeau took down one of the strongest fields of the year by playing his best golf on the weekend to win the Dell Technologies Championship, becoming only the second player to capture the opening two playoff events in the FedEx Cup.
The selection will give Mickelson the most appearances in history, breaking a tie with Nick Faldo, and he enters the 2018 Ryder Cup as Team USA's third leading point-scorer in history (21.5), behind only Billy Casper (23.5) and Arnold Palmer (23). I really wanted to play on it.
"I served as a vice-captain a couple of years ago, and that was incredible". For Mickelson, more than setting a record by playing his 12th Ryder Cup, the 48-year-old gets what he believes will be his last chance to capture that gold trophy away from home. I got the call from Jim and he asked if I would serve as a vice-captain and I said 'Absolutely'.
Tony Finau is believed to be the leading candidate for 12th and final spot.
"It's obvious that the one thing that has been missing over the years is for our team to go over to Europe and win", Mickelson said. Among the players he's considering for his four at-large selections, include Ian Poulter, Sergio Garcia, Henrik Stenson, Paul Casey, Rafa Cabrera-Bello, Thomas Pieters and last week's victor in Demark, Matt Wallace, a multiple victor on the European Tour this year.
