Tony Finau has been selected for the American Ryder Cup team as Jim Furyk’s final captain’s pick.

“The final Captain’s Pick is in. Welcome to the team tonyfinaugolf!,” tweeted Ryder Cup USA.

Captain Furyk chose Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, and Bryson DeChambeau as his first three picks on September 4th.
