US captain Jim Furyk named Tony Finau as his fourth and final captain's pick Monday following the completion of the BMW Championship.

He came in eighth at the BMW Championship, whilst Xander Schauffele came in tied third, so Xander must be really sore at not getting the final pick.

Given Europe's recent dominance in this event before its loss in 2016 and the fact that this year's event is being played in France, you could certainly make a case for taking Europe on the golf odds.

Finau had been considered a hot favorite based on his strong recent form.

"What an unbelievable body of work this year", Furyk said in a statement. "He checked a lot of boxes and made it impossible not to go for him". Finau is the 12th man on board for the red, white and blue as this squad heads to Paris in two weeks to try and win on European soil for the first time in a quarter of a century.

"There won't be any locker room noise with me", Finau said Monday. I'm excited to add him to the team. "Tony played well in big moments this year". It marked his 11th top-10 finish this season.

Eight other USA players made the roster after last month's PGA Championship after a two-year qualifying period - Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Patrick Reed, Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Webb Simpson, Rickie Fowler and Bubba Watson.

The 28-year-old joins a number of big names in Furyk's team, with Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth included alongside high-profile veterans Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods. Throw in Woods and Mickelson, and that gives the US team a lineup that has combined for 31 majors.

It's an incredible achievement for Finau, who grew up playing golf in Rose Park.

"I never thought I was on that team until I got that call", he said.

"I look forward to the opportunity to help the U.S. bring the Cup back".
