WATCH: Tiger Woods says Ryder Cup wild card pick 'beyond special'



Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau were added to the US Ryder Cup team on Tuesday when Jim Furyk announced three captain's picks.

There were no surprises when Furyk revealed his selections in Philadelphia, as the trio had virtually picked themselves - DeChambeau for his recent form and Woods and Mickelson for their vast experience in the event.

The US will defend the Cup at the September 28-30 event against Europe at Le National in Paris.

Furyk heaped praise on the trio, particularly 14-time major champion Woods, who will now relinquish his role as a vice-captain. Woods will return after missing the past two Ryder Cups with a long-standing back injury. Mickelson, 48, will be making a record 12th appearance in the event, moving past European great Nick Faldo.

He has not played, however, on a winning team in Europe, where the US has not triumphed since 1993. DeChambeau, 24, won back-to-back victories the last two weeks on the PGA Tour, jumping to seventh in the world rankings.Furyk also announced that David Duval, Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar would join Davis Love III and Steve Stricker as US vice-captains in Paris.

Furyk will announce his final captain's pick next Monday to complete the 12-man team.
