Who is in the hunt for captain's picks for the Ryder Cup?

Furyk's eight automatic qualifiers were confirmed following the conclusion of the PGA Championship earlier this month, with Bryson DeChambeau just missing out in ninth place while Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson were the notable players to miss out.

But while Woods and Mickelson are widely expected to be the first two names on Furyk's list, DeChambeau's impressive four-shot victory at The Northern Trust is highly likely to earn the charismatic 24-year-old a Ryder Cup debut.

Tony Finau won the race for second place at Ridgewood Country Club to enhance his claims, but will Furyk opt for his power over the likes of Xander Schauffele and Matt Kuchar?

Andrew Coltart joined Sarah Stirk at the Sky Cart in New Jersey to give his verdict, as well as the options available for European skipper Bjorn with just one tournament remaining before the first eight members of his team are confirmed.

Ahead of the Made in Denmark, veterans Ian Poulter, Paul Casey and Henrik Stenson are currently relying on a captain's pick to represent the blue corner in Paris as Europe look to extend their 25-year unbeaten record on home soil.

Sergio Garcia is another high-profile name to be on the outside looking in, while Thomas Pieters and Rafa Cabrera Bello are both set to compete in Denmark as they look to build on their stellar debuts at Hazeltine two years ago.
