  • PGA Dell Technologies Championship- Third Round

Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods and Bryson DeChambeau were selected to the 2018 U.S. Ryder Cup team on Tuesday afternoon, filling three of the four Captain's Pick spots.

The 42-year-old joins Phil Mickelson and Bryan DeChambeau as the three captain's picks for this year's Ryder Cup.

Furyk will name his final pick on Monday, following this weekend's penultimate PGA Tour event, the BMW Championship.

Alisson Becker 'angry' at himself following error in Liverpool win
Alisson joined Liverpool from Roma for a then world-record fee for a goalkeeper of £66.8million in July. But it's still early in the season, we are not 100 percent stable to do the right things constantly.

The physics major solved all the equations and became the first player to win consecutive tournaments on the PGA Tour this season with a two-stroke victory over Justin Rose at the Dell Technologies Championship. 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. This year's captain, Furyk, said he was impressed not only that DeChambeau won back-to-back titles, but by the method in which he won.

Mickelson was always regarded as a likely pick for what will be a record-breaking 12th Ryder Cup appearance. Furyk's selection of Matt Kuchar as an assistant captain is considered a good sign of Finau's status, removing a contender from the mix. "At this moment going forward, though, I'm just going to keep going about my business and doing what I can do". "He's not making that many mistakes, and if he does, I talked to him over the past couple of months, he's missing the ball in the correct spots, and that makes all the difference". "I wanted to be a part of that atmosphere and get comfortable with that". "I set out this year on really a strong commitment and journey to get on the team". Among the players he's considering for his four at-large selections, include Ian Poulter, Sergio Garcia, Henrik Stenson, Paul Casey, Rafa Cabrera-Bello, Thomas Pieters and last week's victor in Demark, Matt Wallace, a multiple victor on the European Tour this year.

Bryson DeChambeau has netted a small fortune in just two weeks, with a stunning season-first on the PGA Tour sealing him a special piece of golf history.

Lego builds full-scale driving Bugatti Chiron
The test drive with Andy Wallace took place at the Ehra-Lessien facility in Germany, where the real Chiron was first tested . Even the car's curvaceous seats are also realistically recreated, through a series of panel, beam, and tile elements.

Among his eight automatic qualifiers via two points lists - one a European list, one a World list - Bjorn already counts five rookies: Tyrrell Hatton, Tommy Fleetwood, Jon Rahm, Alex Noren and Thorbjorn Olesen.

Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Bubba Watson, Justin Thomas, Patrick Reed, Jordan Spieth, Webb Simpson and Rickie Fowler automatically qualified for the team.

Rick Zamperin: Simply put, Blue Jays whiffed on Josh Donaldson deal
Donaldson has played in just 36 games this year, as the third baseman is dealing with a nagging hamstring injury. The 32-year-old Donaldson was the league's top player in 2015, when he batted.297 with 41 homers and 123 RBIs.
