Jim Furyk Announces Three Of His Ryder Cup Wildcards

Woods only returned to competitive golf in November but has been impressive ever since

Woods only returned to competitive golf in November but has been impressive ever since

Mickelson, 48, will be making a record 12th appearance in the event, moving past European great Nick Faldo.

The eight automatic qualifiers last month were Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed, Justin Thomas, Bubba Watson, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler and Webb Simpson.

The 42nd Ryder Cup takes place on the Albatros Course of Le Golf National, Paris from 28th-30th of September 2018.

Tiger Woods is returning to the Ryder Cup as a player for the first time in six years.

There will be widespread shock if Phil Mickelson and rookie Bryson DeChambeau are not also announced as Furyk selects the first three of his four captain's picks.

More medical camps would be set up at the community health care centres in Kozikhode where preventive care medication would be distributed.

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.

Furyk heaped particular praise on 14-times major champion Woods, who will now relinquish his role as a vice-captain. He will make his four captain's selections on Wednesday, Sept. 5, and he'll be choosing from lions like Sergio Garcia, Ian Poulter and Henrik Stenson as well as Matthew Fitzpatrick, Rafa Cabrera Bello, Thomas Pieters and Paul Casey. "I get chills just thinking about it". Furyk's selection of Matt Kuchar as an assistant captain is considered a good sign of Finau's status, removing a contender from the mix.

Mickelson, whose first Ryder Cup was 1995, has never been a part of a USA winning side on the road.

"It's going to be a great challenge because we know how strong the European side is and how well they play at home but it's a wonderful opportunity to do something I haven't been a part of in my career".
