Bryson DeChambeau reacts after putting out on the 18th hole during the final round of the Dell Technologies Championship golf tournament at TPC Boston in Norton, Mass., Monday, Sept. 3, 2018.

Cameron Smith, who returned to form last week, continued his fine play with a third-place finish at 13 under.

"I really wanted to play on it", Woods said Tuesday at a news conference where Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau were also added to the US team.

US captain Jim Furyk had an easy time with three of his four picks.

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. Furyk will announce his final captain's pick after this week's BMW Championship.

The matches are September 28-30 outside Paris. Pieters endured a slow start to the year but hasn't missed a cut since May, picking up three top-tens in his last five starts alone.

The bookmakers have had their work cut out in pricing up the odds for Thomas Bjorn's potential wildcard picks for the European Ryder Cup team to take on United States of America later this month.

Bryson DeChambeau has netted a small fortune in just two weeks, with a stunning season-first on the PGA Tour sealing him a special piece of golf history.

DeChambeau is the first golfer to win back-to-back playoff events since Billy Horschel in 2014 and the sixth overall to accomplish that feat since its inception in 2007.

Mickelson and DeChambeau also received at-large picks Tuesday and will join qualifiers Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed, Justin Thomas, Bubba Watson, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler and Webb Simpson.

Mickelson said ending that long U.S. wait for a victory in Europe was his prime motivation. "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". The U.S. last won away from home in 1993.

The former world No 1 had originally been named as a vice-captain - the same role he held at Hazeltine in 2016 - but will now be replaced in that role, with David Duval, Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar added to Furyk's backroom team.

Woods will no longer be a vice captain, though Furyk said he would continue to lean on his advice.

Francesco Molinari, Justin Rose, Tyrrell Hatton, Tommy Fleetwood, Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Alex Noren and Thorbjorn Olesen will line up for the European side.
