It was essentially a formality, but on Wednesday morning, Utah native Tony Finau was officially named to the United States Ryder Cup team that will compete against a contingent from Europe in the biennial event later this month in Wisconsin.

This marks the second time Finau has been named to the 12-man team in his career, as he also competed in the 2018 event in France (it got postponed to this year in 2020 because of the pandemic), where he went 2-1.

Finau got on this year’s team by virtue of being named one of six captain’s picks (Steve Stricker is the captain) after he was not one of the six automatic qualifiers, although he was considered a shoo-in as a captain’s pick.

The full United States team is as follows:

  • Collin Morikawa
  • Dustin Johnson
  • Bryson DeChambeau
  • Brooks Koepka
  • Justin Thomas
  • Patrick Cantlay
  • Tony Finau
  • Daniel Berger
  • Harris English
  • Jordan Spieth
  • Xander Schauffele
  • Scottie Scheffler
