After a parade of partners with distinctly mixed results in the Ryder Cup, the most compelling endorsement to consider DeChambeau one of the game's truly great players is the notion that he's a natural fit to play with Woods.

For Woods, it's the culmination of a comeback that began in January after a fourth surgery on his lower back.

For Mickelson, this will be his record 12th Ryder Cup team, eclipsing the record of 11 he shared with Nick Faldo.

US captain Jim Furyk had an easy time with three of his four picks.

The 2018 Ryder Cup takes place September 25-30 in Paris.

"At the beginning of the year that was one of my goals, to make this team".

'We have some incredible players and a really special opportunity to do something we haven't done in a long time.

'I'm excited about the team this year, I'm excited to be part of the team.

DeChambeau attended the last Ryder Cup, outside of Minneapolis - as a spectator.

I don't want to lose against anybody. "I played a lot of long and tough matches in my career". Third seed Juan Martin del Potro crushed Croatia's Borna Coric 6-4 6-3 6-1 at the U.S.

Mickelson has only been on three winning teams - at Brookline in 1999, Valhalla in 2008 and two years ago at Hazeltine.

"I would have to say I'm extremely happy with the 11 players we have", Furyk said. His role won't change much but he will be a player. "We haven't done that in 25 years", Mickelson said.

"I'd love to be on that team".

'I really wanted to play in it.

Heading into a press conference to announce three of his four wildcard picks, Furyk already had a ridiculously talented and steely collection. "But it could have been a lot more hard". Woods briefly had the lead Sunday in the British Open until he tied for sixth, and he shot a career-best final round of 64 to finish second in the PGA Championship. Mickelson, 48, won for the first time since the 2013 Open Championship when he outdueled Thomas in a playoff at the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship in early March.

DeChambeau, Mickelson and Woods were the next three in the USA standings behind the eight players who earned automatic spots after the PGA Championship.

One other dose of good news for Furyk on Tuesday was the return of Fowler to the PGA Tour after Fowler missed the first two FedEx Cup Playoffs events with a partial tear in his right oblique, an injury he first felt at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational prior to the PGA Championship.

It was the third win of the year for DeChambeau, who also won the playoff opener at Ridgewood and is guaranteed the No. 1 seed for the Tour Championship regardless of what happens in the third round.
