Thomas Bjorn ready to choose Sergio García for Ryder Cup

And he would appear to be a shoo-in to be one of US captain Jim Furyk's three Ryder Cup picks to be announced Tuesday.

DeChambeau emerged on Monday as the hottest commodity in the game at the moment, becoming the first player this season on the PGA Tour to win back-to-back events with another commanding performance at TPC Boston. For the first time since early in 2013, Woods is playing three consecutive weeks, and needs to remain among the top 30 in FedEx points in order to be eligible for the Tour Championship in two weeks.

Woods, who has not played a Ryder Cup since 2012, revealed that he had set himself the target of making the U.S. team at the start of the season.

"It's going to be a great challenge because we know how strong the European side is and how well they play at home, but it's a wonderful chance, an opportunity for us to do something I haven't done or been a part of in my career, and would very much like to", Mickelson said.

"I wouldn't have written it any better, to be honest with you", DeChambeau said.

This will be Mickelson's 12th Ryder Cup appearance, and he will look to improve upon his 18-20-7 overall record.

With Woods now part of Furyk's team rather than backroom staff, David Duval, Zach johnson and Matt Kuchar have been added as U.S. vice-captains. But a sluggish summer stalled those thoughts until he regained his form in the last month, climaxed by the final-round 63 he shot on Monday at the Dell. "I wanted to be a part of that atmosphere and get comfortable with that".

USA treasury secretary says trade talks with China are on back burner
Canada is due to rejoin the NAFTA discussions on Tuesday and has said it also wants to have its say on the new rules. And if that happens, this country could face devastating USA tariffs on auto exports, the White House insists.

So although he might not be at his peak when he arrives for the Ryder Cup, there's no denying he was one of the best golfers available for Team USA.

"I'd love to be on that team".

"The three here made it probably a little easier day than for most captains, " Furyk said at a press conference in West Conshohocken, Pa. "Bryson really separated himself and put an exclamation point on things".

Europe are set to name their four wildcards today, with Ian Poulter, Sergio Garcia, Henrik Stenson and Paul Casey all fancied to make the cut.

Ton Finau, Xander Schauffele and Kevin Kisner are all in contention to join the aforementioned trio and automatic qualifiers Brooks Koepka, Patrick Reed, Rickie Fowler, world no 1 Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Webb Simpson, Justin Thomas and Bubba Watson.

Unlike the relatively simple task for Furyk, Bjorn has many more hard decisions to make by Wednesday.
