United States Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk has dismissed suggestions he could resurrect Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson as a pairing.

On Tuesday Mickelson suggested both players would now welcome the chance to give it a go again, but Furyk appears to have no intention of giving them the opportunity.
