Tony Finau gets final Ryder Cup pick from Jim Furyk

Tony Finau gets final Ryder Cup pick from Jim FurykJim Furyk has confirmed the  last of his four captain’s picks, and it's going to be Tony Finau.

"He has an unbelievable body of work this year," Furyk confirmed in a statement after the finish of the rain-delayed BMW Championship.

 "All those top-10 finishes, the play in big championships and the Majors, and then his current form, a second, a fourth and an eighth in the playoffs. He checked a lot of boxes and made it impossible not to pick him."

We would have to go along with that, as Finau's consistency has been noteable, even though he has yet to win on the PGA Tour.

But he has always been contenting, and we are sure he will win on tour before long.

That said, he will be a Ryder Cup rookie, and that is a massive step up for someone who has yet to close out a major tournament.

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.

The pick came hours after Finau touched off a top-10 finish at the BMW Championship. It was his 11th top 10 on the season and the sixth in his last nine events. Finau is tied with Dustin Johnson for most top 10s on the PGA Tour this season. His 65 on Monday was also his 15th consecutive round in the 60s dating back to the PGA Championship in August.

But the final piece of Jim Furyk's plan is now in place.

Let the games begin....
