Perhaps the biggest subplot for the BMW Championship was the final position on the American Ryder Cup Team. Captain Jim Furyk named three of his four captain’s picks after last week’s Dell Technologies Championship, and with just one to go, there were a number of players in the Aronimink field hoping to catch Furyk’s eye.
In the end, the player Furyk picked was the one who was believed to have the best chance coming into the week: Tony Finau.
With his co-Tour leading 11th top 10 finish of the year, and his third in three weeks of the FedExCup Playoffs, Finau made himself difficult to leave off the team.
The world No. 17 will be one of just two Ryder Cup Rookies on the American team (Bryson DeChambeau).
