Moore added to US Ryder Cup team


Ryan Moore has been named as the fourth and final US wildcard for the Ryder Cup, which gets underway on Friday.

Captain Davis Love III had opted to delay naming his fourth wildcard until after the season-ending Tour Championship in order to avoid a repeat of 2014 when Billy Horschel missed out on selection despite winning the BMW Championship and the Tour Championship to snatch the FedExCup title.

Moore carded a superb final round 64 to join Kevin Chappell and Rory McIlroy in a three-way play-off, only to lose out to McIlroy at the fourth extra hole at East Lake in Atlanta.

However, just three hours later he was confirmed as the fourth and final pick for the US Ryder Cup team, beating the likes of Bubba Watson, Justin Thomas and Daniel Berger.

"Ryan fits so well with what we have in place. He's an easy-going, thoughtful guy, but don't be fooled, Ryan's a great match-play player with an incredible match-play record," Love said.

"He has guts and determination and everyone saw that [on Sunday]. We’re thrilled to have him with us."
