Bjorn wants to 'see something' from Garcia before Ryder Cup

Europe Captain Bjorn Hopes Tiger Plays In Ryder Cup

Matt Kuchar, who has made eight consecutive USA teams, is 12th in the standings and in need of some good showings in the weeks ahead to be part of the team that will travel to the 42nd Ryder Cup Sept. 28-30 at Le Golf National outside Paris.

This may help explain why Woods' has a starkly different Ryder Cup record in the three formats used in the competition.

Woods was an obvious choice to do it again, and this was prior to him playing a single PGA Tour event in his comeback from back surgery.

At a media conference at Bellerive Country Club, site of the US PGA Championship that tees offs on Thursday, Furyk talked about his role as captain and how he'll make his picks. "I probably will let them both know I didn't ask for it and just go play golf and have fun". There are some good signs here and there, and he can turn it around very quickly'. "I know that Tiger always wanted to compete, and he's been moving up the points this year which has been fun to watch".

The second-year PGA Tour pro from SoCal didn't play the Walker Cup, and his college days aside, he never has been part of a team golf event.

But for a major champion who has played eight Ryder Cups, the key now is to show a degree of form rather than qualify outright.

Decisions, decisions. Furyk will name three of his captain's selections following the PGA Tour's second FedEx Cup playoff event outside Boston (Dell Technologies), which concludes September 3. Furyk will make three of his picks on September 4, following the second FedEx Cup playoff event, the Dell Technologies Championship. He played in the final group at the Masters, at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth and last week at the Bridgestone Invitational.

Alzheimer’s BREAKTHROUGH: Eye conditions could hold KEY to EARLY DETECTION
Early detection and preventative measures are thought to be key with Alzheimer's, which is the most common form of dementia . Throughout a five-year study period, they diagnosed almost 800 of those monitored with Alzheimer's.

I think my best chance since Valhalla was at Carnoustie, but in golf you just have to be an eternal optimist.

DeChambeau now sits at No. 9 on the points list.

Bjorn has two career top-10s in 16 PGA starts, including a T-2 in 2005. I went out and played nine holes yesterday and it was like, 'Who is this guy?' I started hitting a couple of good shots and it's been awhile, certainly, but, yeah, I struggled a bit with injuries and focus on other things, but it's not about me. I think the golf course lends itself to a certain type of player. If I were on the other (European) side, I wouldn't want him picked, so that's another good reason".

The top four in the USA standings (Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Justin Thomas and Patrick Reed) have clinched spots. Close behind Simpson is Bryson DeChambeau, followed by Phil Mickelson and British Open runner-up Xander Schauffele. It is interesting that Furyk is grouped for the first two rounds with Schauffele and Finau at the PGA.

"I'm glad that this generation of players get to experience Tiger Woods, because they need to experience what he brings to the game and all that comes with the world of Tiger Woods", Bjorn said. "It probably isn't the best pairing for them".

The biennial event at Le Golf National near Paris will match holders United States, who haven't won on European soil since 1993, against a Europe squad that won6 of 7 before falling in 2016.

When asked about his own prospects, Woods has been coy. You look ahead to the possibility of winning the Ryder Cup, he said. "We'll see. I've gone from zero to basically 20th in seven months". "As I said last week, I'm trending".
