WATCH: Tiger Woods on 'special' Ryder Cup honour

Cape Town - Tiger Woods was on Tuesday named in the United States' Ryder Cup team as captain Jim Furyk also added veteran Phil Mickelson and in-form Bryson DeChambeau to his line-up.

Former world number one Woods had already been assured of a trip to Paris for the September 28-30 showdown with Europe after being named as one of Furyk's non-playing vice-captains.

However Woods' form since his return to golf this year prompted Furyk to award him one of the four captain's picks set aside for players who did not qualify automatically for the team.
