Woods is also expected to be one of US captain Jim Furyk's at-large picks for the Ryder Cup, which is September 28-30 in France.

Furyk selected Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods and Bryson DeChambeau to fill three of the four Captain's Pick slots on Tuesday afternoon.

Woods, Mickelson and DeChambeau will be joined by one more of Furyk's captain's picks which will be announced Monday. Check in for highlights from every tournament plus player interviews, player profiles, tournament previews, swing analysis and all the greatest shots and fantastic moments. It's only slightly less evident that the two will be paired together in Paris, which is also notable considering that Woods hasn't played the matches since 2012 and has never really found a go-to partner.

That DeChambeau appears to be Woods' partner-in-waiting for this year's Ryder Cup also speaks volumes.

'It is a great challenge and a strong challenge because we know how well the European team plays at home'.

"I served as a vice-captain a couple of years ago, and that was incredible".

Mickelson was always regarded as a likely pick for what will be a record-breaking 12th Ryder Cup appearance. "He's not making that many mistakes, and if he does, I talked to him over the past couple of months, he's missing the ball in the correct spots, and that makes all the difference".

Woods was already set to go to Paris as a vice captain, but Furyk said he'll select someone else for that role so the 42-year-old can focus on playing.

With Woods now part of Furyk's team rather than backroom staff, David Duval, Zach johnson and Matt Kuchar have been added as USA vice-captains.

'Lo and behold I'm part of this team.
