‘Mad Scientist’ DeChambeau claims 2nd straight FedEx Cup win

  • Bryson De Chambeau followed up his victory at The Northern Trust by winning in Boston

In January, when Furyk asked Woods, 42, to be one of his vice captains, Woods was ranked 656th in the world, had not earned a single Ryder Cup point and had not played a PGA tour event in a year.

The 25-year old did the damage going out, as five birdies helped him move clear of the pack, with only second-placed Justin Rose threatening late on as the Englishman birdied four of the final six holes to set the clubhouse lead at 14 under.

"Not that it was an easy decision", Furyk said with a smile.

Bryson DeChambeau plays golf differently from everyone else and is getting the results everyone wants.

Tiger Woods backed Bryson DeChambeau as a US Ryder Cup captain's choice on Sunday after watching his playing partner fire an eight-under 63 at the PGA Dell Technologies Championship.

Amazon's success pushed Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO, to the top of Forbes' billionaires list this year. The stock gained 2% to hit the magic number of $2,050.27, or R31,356, per share on Tuesday .

Ryder Cup Form: The Spaniard impressed as a rookie in a losing cause for Europe in 2016, winning two and halving one of his three matches. Justin Rose shot 65 and briefly pressured the victor before finishing tied for second with Rickie Fowler.

"I've had quite a bit of resistance", DeChambeau said.

It was the third win of the year for DeChambeau, who also won the playoff opener at Ridgewood and is guaranteed the No. 1 seed for the Tour Championship regardless of what happens in the third round. Tony Finau is considered the leading candidate. 9, 10 and 11 when qualifying ended for eight automatic berths after the PGA Championship.

During the FedEx Cup playoffs, he was runner-up at one event and tied for fourth at the other.

Thomas Bjorn will name his captain's picks tomorrow.

China pledges another US$60bn to Africa as leaders meet in Beijing
Addressing leaders in Beijing's Great Hall of the People, Mr Xi said the $60bn would be made up of both aid and loans. Dudley McKinley Thomas, the staff at the Embassy, and the leadership of the Liberian and student community in China.

The three picks join Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed, Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler and Webb Simpson on the team.

That doesn't mean as much in foursomes and fourballs, on a European course before the singing and chanting of Europeans fans.

Mickelson said ending that long United States wait for a victory in Europe was his prime motivation.

"At the beginning of the year that was one of my goals, to make this team. In naming these three players, that's what we've done".

Woods will no longer be a vice captain, though Furyk said he would continue to lean on his advice. He is a former U.S. Amateur champion and has already developed a bond with Woods, looking to speculation about a possible pairing in France.

As the wave crosses South Florida and enters the Gulf of Mexico on Labor Day, it will be in a better environment for development. But Chris and Beryl maintained hurricane strength for just 3.25 days, when the average for this time in the season is six days.
