Thomas Bjorn ready to choose Sergio García for Ryder Cup

Bryson De Chambeau said he was nervous playing with his childhood idol Tiger Woods in a competitive situation

With those chilling words from Bryson Dechambeau, Phil Mickelson's uneasy stare and Tiger Woods' beaming smile, the USA's three wildcard picks for the 2019 Ryder Cup were announced.

Tiger Woods, who is one of Furyk's vice-captains has got the nomination alongside Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau.

On September 10th the final wildcard pick will be made by Furyk.

Finau would become the first Utah native to play in the Ryder Cup and the first golfer who was living in Utah at the time to compete in the event since Johnny Miller in 1981. Mickelson's overall Ryder Cup record is 18-20-7. It's only slightly less evident that the two will be paired together in Paris, which is also notable considering that Woods hasn't played the matches since 2012 and has never really found a go-to partner. He has a 13-17-3 record. The 24-year-old is coming off back-to-back wins in the FedExCup Playoffs, having won The Northern Trust and the Dell Technologies Championship.

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

Sessions’ job is safe until at least November elections — Trump to Bloomberg
Trump said in a Twitter post on Saturday that Sessions "doesn't understand what is happening underneath his command position". He charged that Mr Mueller's probe was "highly conflicted" and that "real corruption goes untouched".

"Hopefully, it will make it easy for him to take me", Mickelson said.

Finau is hoping to become a Ryder Cup rookie, but he already has worldwide experience after playing in the Junior Ryder Cup in 2004 and '06. In 2017, Australian Marc Leishman shot 67 to capture his third PGA TOUR victory.

At the time, Woods, 42, was ranked 656th in the world and had not earned a single Ryder Cup point.

The selection marks a superb turnaround for the 14-time Major victor and former world number one, considering he was originally named as one of Furyk's vice-captains. He played with Keith Mitchell, another PGA Tour rookie, who birdied his last two holes for a 69. Furyk invited him as part of a small group that played Le Golf National on the weekend before the British Open. "At this moment going forward, though, I'm just going to keep going about my business and doing what I can do".

When Mickelson, 48, won in Mexico in the March to end a five-year winless drought, he thought it would be a certainty he'd be on the team.

Who is Bruce Ohr, whose name keeps appearing in Trump’s tweets?
At the time of the 2016 presidential election, he was a high-ranking official in the deputy attorney general's office. Trump and Republican lawmakers have attacked Steele's research as phony and have sought to discredit him and Ohr.

A week ago he boat-raced the field at the playoff opener by four strokes, a signature moment for a player who - despite two victories in two seasons on Tour - was still very much an unknown commodity.

"This is most likely my last chance to go to be a part of a winning US team in Europe, and obviously the one thing that has been missing for our team has been to go over to Europe and win, " Mickelson said.

"I think we could be a great team out there".

The three picks join Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed, Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler and Webb Simpson on the team. "It's a well-rounded team, and we'll go to work, get set to go".

It was widely expected that García would get the nod alongside Henrik Stenson, Paul Casey and Ian Poulter and Bjørn confirmed that was indeed the case during a press conference on Wednesday.
