Golf – Ryder Cup ’18: Tony Finau Named As The Last USA Wildcard
Tony Finau has been chosen as the last wildcard pick by skipper, Jim Furyk as a part of the USA’s Ryder Cup team.
The 28-year-old completed tied eighth at the rain-postponed BMW Championship which was won by Keegan Bradley who did not make it to the team.
I get Jim Furyk opting for Tony Finau for the Ryder Cup captain’s pick but if it were me choosing I’d give the people what they want and name Bill Murray

Additionally, Tim Furyk’s 12-man team incorporates other wildcards such as Bryson DeChambeau, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.
Ryder Cup 2018 is scheduled to be held on 28 September near Paris, and the US are the defending champs against Europe. Surprisingly, US team has never won progressive Ryder Cups since 1991 and 1993.
The 8 different players who qualified consequently 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.
Tony Finau is the last wildcard pick from the US. That team, on paper, looks ridiculously good. Can they all play together as a team? Buzzing for the start of the Ryder cup now

Thomas Bjorn Can’t understand why Jimmy Furyk selected Tony Finau over a more veteran presence, ideally someone who’s missed the last five major cuts and can’t qualify for the 125 person playoffs #RyderCup
