DeChambeau fired a 4-under-par 67 on Monday in the final round to post a two-shot victory in the Dell Technologies Championship at TPC Boston in Norton, Mass., his second win in the first two postseason events.

And he solidified his claim to be one of Jim Furyk's captain's picks for the American Ryder Cup team, where he would join the likes of Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler, Jordan Spieth, back-to-back U.S. Open victor Brooks Koepka and others who have staked a claim to follow Tiger Woods as golf's next big thing.

DeChambeau, who rose to the top of the FedEx Cup standings with a win last week in New Jersey, further distanced himself from the pack with another success - his third of the year.

"If he goes around and shoots eight-under par every time, that will work", Woods said with a smile. "It's incredible, it really is, to look back at the start of the year and now to have accomplished a goal like that, to be a part of this team, and now to be a player is just - like I said, it's beyond special".

Thomas Bjorn has selected Ian Poulter, Henrik Stenson, Sergio Garcia and Paul Casey as wild cards for his European Ryder Cup team, it was announced Wednesday.

He built a four-shot lead early on the back nine, before Australian Cameron Smith made it interesting, cutting the margin to one shot with two quick birdies.

"I was little frustrated about 15 in taking bogey as I hit a really good putt a fraction too hard, made a 360-degree lip on me".




Though Woods has not won since 2013, he finished runner up at the Valspar Championship and PGA Championship this season. He capped four straight rounds in the 60s with a two-under 69. Both moved into the top 70.

Woods, who has not played a Ryder Cup since 2012, revealed that he had set himself the target of making the U.S. team at the start of the season. Woods briefly had the lead Sunday in the British Open until he tied for sixth, and he shot a career-best final round of 64 to finish second in the PGA Championship.

DeChambeau, who has never played in the biennial event, finished ninth on the list, while fourteen-time major victor Tiger Woods is also likely to be included.

Bryson DeChambeau and Tiger Woods are widely expected to be given a wildcard slot. 9, 10 and 11 when qualifying ended for eight automatic berths after the PGA Championship.

"So fortunate also that it's the day before the Ryder Cup picks, although I don't feel that should be a bearing", he said. "Not one round. But it certainly doesn't hurt".

The top 30 make it to East Lake for the Tour Championship, where everyone has a mathematical chance at the $10 million prize.
