Technically, neither DeChambeau nor Woods are members of the U.S. Ryder Cup team, but captain Jim Furyk is sure to fix that on Tuesday when he announces three of his four picks for this year's matches.

On Thursday fans get the chance to watch the official Opening Ceremony and then it's game on with both Europe and the USA's best players going head to head on Le Golf National's hallowed turf at one of golf's greatest events.

Ian Poulter, Henrik Stenson, Paul Casey and Sergio Garcia were handed the four wildcard picks to make the European Ryder Cup team on Wednesday (Sept 5), as captain Thomas Bjorn put his faith in experience. The idea is to find the hottest player to fill out the team, and no one has been close to DeChambeau over the last two weeks. Furyk will announce his final captain's pick after this week's BMW Championship.

Thomas Bjorn appears ready to ignore the form book and name Sergio García in the European team for this month's Ryder Cup in France.

The remarkable comeback story this season of Tiger Woods is set to have a chapter on his performance at the Ryder Cup. His last time overseas was at Gleneagles, where he infamously closed out a losing press conference by questioning captain Tom Watson and the direction the PGA of America was taking the USA team.

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson (64), Bubba Watson (66), Rafa Cabrera Bello of Spain (68), Emillano Grillo of Argentina (70) and third-round leader Abraham Ancer of Mexico (73) finished tied for seventh at 11 under. What the 48-year-old has yet to do is win on foreign soil, and he said Tuesday he was well aware this event might represent his final opportunity to get that triumph. "I'd love to be on that team".

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

Woods has five top-6 finishes in 2018, including a runner-up showing in the PGA Championship and a tie for sixth in the British Open.

Bryson DeChambeau clinched back-to-back wins in the FedEx Cup playoff series here Monday, sealing victory in the Dell Technologies Championship to all but guarantee himself a place on the United States Ryder Cup team. I got off to a great start this year. He knows what I can bring to the team. For the continent to wrestle back the trophy these wildcards will be under pressure to repay the faith shown by their captain.

Furyk said Woods will no longer serve as a vice captain.

After a penalty drop, Smith couldn't recover to make par and fell one behind Rose into third and leaving the stage for a relatively stress-free walk up the last for DeChambeau. "And naming these three players, that's what we've done".
