However, Woods will relinquish his vice-captain duties to focus on playing, with Furyk naming David Duval, Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar as additional vice-captains Tuesday. "I'm very excited about the team this year".

Tony Finau is believed to be the leading candidate for 12th and final spot.

The European team had eight qualifiers - Justin Rose, Tyrrell Hatton, Rory McIlroy, Tommy Fleetwood, Jon Rahm, Alexander Noren, Francesco Molinari and Thorbjorn Olesen - decided on Sunday following the Made in Denmark tournament on the European Tour.
