  • The 146th Open Championship- Royal Birkdale

Furyk will add a final pick following the BMW Championship at Aronimink Golf Club on September 10.

There is even the opportunity to watch the Celebrity Ryder Cup match, which will take place on Tuesday with the first tee off time at 2pm.

The 24-year-old will be named a captain's pick on Tuesday as part of the United States team for this month's Ryder Cup in Paris.

DeChambeau, with his third victory this year, was assured of being the No. 1 seed when he gets to the Tour Championship, no matter what happens next week at the third playoff event outside Philadelphia.

DeChambeau locked in his place after registering back-to-back wins at the Northern Trust and the Dell Technologies Championship, while Ryder Cup stalwart Mickelson will make his 12th consecutive appearance for Team USA. The Dane has some hard decisions to make before he announces his final four team members and we have analysed his potential captain's picks ahead of the announcement at 2pm on Wednesday 5 September.

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. Perhaps Tony Finau, who's been in strong form lately, is most likely to be Furyk's final pick.

The eight Americans who qualified on their own were Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Rickie Fowler, Bubba Watson, Webb Simpson and Patrick Reed.

Ayanna Pressley defeats Michael Capuano in MA U.S. House race
Michael Capuano in the state's 7th Congressional District", Nik DeCosta-Klipa wrote . Another 10-term incumbent went down to defeat in a Democratic primary Tuesday night.

"It's been a treat to be around the Ryder Cup team, and to be able to have this honor is incredible", said DeChambeau, who has three victories in his past 10 worldwide starts.

"It's obvious that the one thing that has been missing is for our team to go over to Europe and win", said Mickelson, who has played on three winning US teams - but never overseas. Pieters endured a slow start to the year but hasn't missed a cut since May, picking up three top-tens in his last five starts alone.

Furyk said Woods will no longer serve as a vice captain. He is a former U.S. Amateur champion and has already developed a bond with Woods, looking to speculation about a possible pairing in France.

Thomas Bjorn will name his captain's picks tomorrow.

Furyk also named David Duvall, Zach Johnson, Matt Kuchar as vice-captains alongside Woods.

Meanwhile, Tyrrell Hatton, Tommy Fleetwood, Jon Rahm, Alex Noren and Thorbjorn Olesenn will be making their maiden Ryder Cup appearances.
