Finau gets final spot on U.S. Ryder Cup team

Finau gets final spot on U.S. Ryder Cup team

Jim Furyk selected Tony Finau with his fourth and final captain's pick on Monday to round out the 2018 U.S. Ryder Cup team.

And that pick seems to be one of the toughest, coming down to either Tony Finau or Xander Schauffele.

The US are the defending champions against Europe for the event near Paris on 28-30 September.

Finau had been considered a hot favorite based on his strong recent form.

Arthur made his Brazil debut in the 60th minute, Lucas Paqueta in the 70th, Richarlison in the 75th and Everton in the 80th. Neymar stutter-stepped in his run-up, Steffen dove to his right and the striker softly kicked the ball in the other way.


"He has an unbelievable body of work this year", Furyk confirmed in a statement after the finish of the rain-delayed BMW Championship. "He checked a lot of boxes and made it impossible not to go for him".

"I liked what I saw", Furyk said of Finau's play on the French host layout.

"I'm so excited to be on the Ryder Cup team and can not wait to get to Paris".

"Hopefully I bring something to the team that can help us bring that Cup back".

The 28-year-old joins a number of big names in Furyk's team, with Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth included alongside high-profile veterans Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods.

The rest of the USA team is Rickie Fowler, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Patrick Reed, Webb Simpson, Jordan Spieth and Bubba Watson. Throw in Woods and Mickelson, and that gives the USA team a lineup that has combined for 31 majors.

Of course, the European team is also stacked, led by stars including Rory McIlory, Tommy Fleetwood, Justin Rose, Jon Rahm, Sergio Garcia and Franceso Molinari.

Finau, who turns 29 on Thursday, was invited by Furyk to play as part of a small group at Le Golf National on the weekend before the British Open.

Being able to use Intel's latest processor then could have allowed Apple to develop a laptop worthy of the "Air" name once again. Leaks suggest we may see a new Apple Watch with a slightly bigger screen and more sophisticated heart-monitoring capabilities.


Finau is of Samoan and Tongan heritage and chose to celebrate his Ryder Cup selection at an event in aid of the Tony Finau Foundation. "I can't wait to get to Paris".
