Jim Furyk's USA Ryder Cup team is now complete following his final wild card picks.

USPGA Champion and two-time US Open winner Brooks Koepka will be one of the headline acts on the USA team after qualifying in 1st position in the points standings.

He will be joined by other big names like world number two Dustin Johnson, world number four Justin Thomas, Masters champion Patrick Reed and three-time major winner Jordan Spieth.

Furyk then named Bryson DeChambeau, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson as his first three wildcards. Tony Finau was his final wildcard selection.
