DeChambeau takes Dell title to stake Ryder Cup claim

US Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk will name his first three wild cards on Tuesday

Only 30 will advance to the season-ending Tour Championship in Atlanta, where DeChambeau is assured of starting as top seed in the race for the $10 million bonus awarded to the FedExCup champion.

He has not played, however, on a winning team in Europe, where the USA has not triumphed since 1993. He won the next FedEx Cup playoff event by two shots.

Furyk picked former world No. 1 David Duval to replace Woods.

Elsewhere Tuesday, it was a disappointing day for Abraham Ancer, who had started the final round with a one-shot lead as he aimed to become the first Mexican player in 40 years to win a US PGA Tour title.

Mack, Bears agree to record deal
The Oakland Raiders have acquired first-round selections in the 2019 and 2020 NFL Draft via a trade with the Chicago Bears . Donald signed a six-year extension worth $135 million on Friday in a deal that included $87 million in guaranteed money.

Ancer couldn't keep pace, dropping three shots in the tough four-hole stretch early on the back nine. His form has been solid this year with top-six finishes at both the Masters and US Open in 2018. He also came up short into the hazard and made bogey. He capped four straight rounds in the 60s with a two-under 69. He has, however, missed the cut in all four majors this year and failed to qualify for the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup playoffs for the first time.

Furyk heaped praise on the trio, particularly 14-times major champion Woods, who will now relinquish his role as a vice-captain.

The likely choices Tuesday would seem to be DeChambeau, Phil Mickelson and Woods, who were Nos. Tiger Woods managed even par on Monday to end up tied for 24th at 7 under.

Ian Poulter, Henrik Stenson, Paul Casey and Sergio Garcia were handed the four wildcard picks to make the European Ryder Cup team on Wednesday (Sept 5), as captain Thomas Bjorn put his faith in experience.

Coca-Cola does already have over 500 brands in its stable including Fanta, innocent smoothies and Powerade sports drinks. Doing so, Whitbread said, would "provide headroom" to expand Premier Inn in Britain and Germany.

'I got the call from Jim, asking if I would be a vice-captain and I said: "Absolutely, I'll do anything to help you" but deep down I wanted to make the team.

"Consistency has been a big thing for me", he said in a greenside interview after joining compatriots Justin Thomas, Bubba Watson and Dustin Johnson as three-times winners this season. "Not one round. But it certainly doesn't hurt". Finau tied a PGA Championship record with 10 birdies in the second round while playing with Furyk. Jordan Spieth still has work to do. DeChambeau still has work to do; he leads Johnson by nearly 2,400 points, but the new system keeps the $10 million bonus in flux until the finale at East Lake Sept. 20-23. He ended by missing a 6-foot eagle putt and had to settle for a 70, moving him up to only No. 27.

The top 30 will compete in the Tour Championship, the final event of the season, on September 20 to 23 at the East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Georgia.

It doesn't take a degree in physics to figure out that DeChambeau will have the best odds of all.
