Phil Mickelson moves into Ryder Cup USA top 12 with T2 finish at Pebble Beach

Phil Mickelson has played on every Ryder Cup USA team since the 1995 matches at Oak Hill Country Club.

Evidently, the 47-year-old -- who will be 48 when the matches begin later this year -- doesn't plan on the streak ending at the 2018 Ryder Cup.

With a tie for second in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Sunday, Lefty moved from No. 21 to No. 12 in the latest standings. It's also worth noting that, incredibly, Mickelson has never once had to rely on a Captain's Pick for any of those previous Ryder Cups. He's made them all outright on points.

For the second consecutive week, Chez Reavie moved in the right direction. Days after his runner-up finish at TPC Scottsdale in the Waste Management Phoenix Open, Reavie finished T2 at Pebble Beach to move from No. 11 to No. 9 on the points list. In a two-week span, Reavie has improved his position by 27 spots. 

Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth and Matt Kuchar continue to own the top-5 positions, in that order. 

U.S. players will continue to gain points in 2018 at every non-opposite PGA Tour event, WGC and major through the 100th PGA Championship at Bellerive, concluding on August 12, 2018.

At that time, Captain Jim Furyk will have his first eight players -- automatic qualifiers.

The four remaining slots on the U.S. Team will be Captain's Selections. Three selections will be announced by Captain Jim Furyk following the Dell Technologies Championship scheduled to be completed on Sept. 3, 2018, and the final selection will be announced after the BMW Championship, which is slated to be completed on Sept. 9, 2018. 

Here's how players will earn points in 2018.

Paisley carries on hot streak

Chris Paisley continued his excellent start to 2018 at last week’s Maybank Championship and now sits one place behind the automatic qualification spots for The 2018 Ryder Cup.

The Englishman, who followed his first European Tour victory in South Africa in January with back-to-back top-five finishes in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, made another flying start in Malaysia where he took the first round lead after a blemish-free 65.

After a second round of 69, Paisley’s 12th consecutive sub-70 score, the 31 year old was one off the halfway lead, and although he couldn’t maintain his form over the weekend Paisley overhauls Ireland’s Paul Dunne to sit one place behind Rory McIlroy in the projected team.

Over in America World Number Two Jon Rahm continues to impress. The Spaniard put himself firmly in contention at the Waste Management Phoenix Open with a third round of 65, and while he was unable to get over the line he remains one of the world’s form players in 2018.

Also rising up the Official World Golf Ranking after last week were Justin Rose, who moves up from sixth to fifth, and Tommy Fleetwood, who sits in a career-high 12th spot.

The points race, which began at the REAL D+D Czech Masters last year, will heat up once May comes around, when points earned will be multiplied by 1.5 at Rolex Series events.

This change to the points system will come into effect at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, the first Rolex Series event of the season, promising plenty of drama over the coming year.

Ryder Cup HOW IT WORKS

The Ryder Cup is played in even-numbered years between 12-member teams from the United States and Europe. It consists of five match-play sessions played over three days.

Team Selection

The European Team will comprise the first 4 players from the European Points List, followed by the leading 4 players from the World Points List and completed by 4 wild cards. The US Team will be made up from the top 8 in the points rankings with 4 captain's picks

Ryder Cup Format

Each of the first two days includes one four-match session of four-ball and one four-match session of foursomes. The final day is reserved for 12 singles matches.

Ryder Cup Scoring

Each match is worth one point, with matches ending in a draw worth ½ point to each side. The first team to reach 14 ½ points wins the Ryder Cup. If the matches end in a 14-14 draw, the team holding the Ryder Cup retains it.
