Tony Finau earned the fourth and final captain’s pick for a spot on the U.S. Ryder Cup team, Jim Furyk announced Monday.
Finau tied for eighth this week at the BMW Championship, which marked his third straight top-10 finish. He also finished in the top 10 in three of the four majors this season and recorded three runner-up finishes.
Furyk announced last week that Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau would be joining his team, and Finau rounds out the roster.

“He has an unbelievable body of work this year,” Furyk said in a statement Monday afternoon, via Golf Digest. “All those top-10 finishes, the play in big championships and the majors, and then his current form, a second, a fourth and an eighth in the playoffs. He checked a lot of boxes and made it impossible not to pick him.”
Finau rose to 15th in the world ranking Monday, which marks his best career position. Though he has won just one time on the PGA Tour, Finau has been a consistent top-10 threat since the end of 2016.
With the team now set, the U.S. will send Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Brooks Koepka, Webb Simpson, Bubba Watson, Patrick Reed, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, Woods, Mickelson, DeChambeau and Finau to France.
The European team is made up of Rory McIlroy, Tyrrell Hatton, Sergio Garcia, Henrik Stenson. Thorbjorn Olesen, Paul Casey, Alex Noren, Tommy Fleetwood, Jon Rahm, Ian Poulter, Francesco Molinari and world No. 1 Justin Rose.
The Ryder Cup will be played Sept. 28-30 at Le Golf National outside Paris.
