The 47-year-old American, whose lone major title came at the 2003 US Open, will lead holders America into the biennial team matches next year against a European squad captained by Denmark's Thomas Bjorn.
Furyk dubbed Trianon Palace, where the teams will reside, as "beautiful" and said European Tour players were impressed with Le Golf National.
We want to put the guys on the team that really are playing well and are in good form going into the Ryder Cup.
Furyk says the PGA Championship's move to May starting in 2019, which won't impact next year's plans, shouldn't cause any future Ryder Cup disruptions, depending on the gap between the end of the US PGA playoffs and the Ryder Cup.
Gives the guys maybe a chance to take a deep breath, get the season over with, and then have a week to prepare and go."
