Tony Finau added to U.S. Ryder Cup team as captain’s pick

"He has an unbelievable body of work this year", said Furyk. "All those top-ten finishes, the play in big championships and majors, and his current form, a second, a fourth and an eighth in the [FedEx Cup] play-offs". "I'm in a position where I feel like a win is the only way I'd even be in consideration", Schauffele said. All the emotions that come with accomplishing something like that ... man, it's a dream come true for me.

The West High School Graduate and Lehi resident was the final pick for USA captain Jim Furyk.

Finau had a chance to show off his talents up close for the captain at last month's 100th PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis. After finishing second and a tie for fourth in the first two FedEx Cup playoff events, he ended up eighth at the BMW as he finished strong with a 5-under-par 65 in Monday's rain-delayed final round.

"I'm so excited to be on the Ryder Cup team", Finau said.

The eight US players who qualified automatically are US Open and US PGA Championship champion Brooks Koepka, Masters victor Patrick Reed, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Bubba Watson, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler and Webb Simpson.

Apple introduces iPhone XR
The new Watches have a new back that offers a completely new electrical sensor that does an actual ECG to check your heart health. And then there's the iPhone Xs Max , which is the closest Apple has ever come to full smartphone overkill.

Finau rose to a career-high 15th in the world rankings on Monday and is looking forward to taking part at Le Golf National from September 28.

Regardless of which player is chosen for the final spot, the USA should have a strong team heading into Paris. "The final Captain's Pick is in".

Finau's Ryder Cup opportunity is historic for the Utah golf community. And I let the guys on the team know that I'd be a great pick and I'd be ready to go.

Xander Schauffele, considered the biggest challenger to Finau for the final berth, tied for third.
