Tiger Woods appears to have ended the uncertainty over his participation in next month's Ryder Cup golf tournament against Europe with a storming finish at the Deutsche Bank Championship in Boston.

If the United States captain Corey Pavin had any lingering doubts about making Woods one of his four wildcard picks tomorrow they are likely to have been dispelled after he birdied three of the last four holes for a closing 68.

That helped him climb to a share of11th with a 10-under total of 274, 12 strokes behind the winner Charley Hoffman.

Woods also retained his number one ranking after Phil Mickelson missed a chance to take top spot by finishing third or better, slumping to a 76 for 277.
