Brooks Koepka makes move into top eight after AT&T Byron Nelson

With his runner-up finish at the AT&T Byron Nelson Classic, Brooks Koepka has forged his way into the top eight in this week's U.S. Team Ryder Cup points.

After losing the playoff to Sergio Garcia at TPC Four Seasons, Koepka jumped four places and vaulting over idle Patrick Reed for the final guaranteed spot on the squad captained by Davis Love III. Reed slipped to ninth, followed by Matt Kuchar -- who also made a four-position gain thanks to his sterling play in Irving. J.B. Holmes dropped from ninth to 11th, while Charley Hoffman rounds out the top 12 after losing one position.

The top seven remained that way for another week. No. 1 Jordan Spieth continues to maintain a large lead over second-place Dustin Johnson. He's followed by Bubba Watson, Brandt Snedeker, Rickie Fowler, Phil Mickelson and Zach Johnson.

Since the 2016 Ryder Cup at Hazeltine in Chaska, Minn., will be played in an Olympic year (with golf included in the Games for the first time since 1904), there have been some adjustments made to the qualifying calendar for Ryder Cup USA.

Here are the key qualifying dates:

- Sunday, Aug. 28, 2016: The top eight will be finalized at the conclusion of The Barclays, which is scheduled to finish on this date, as opposed to the traditional closing of points at the conclusion of the PGA Championship, which will be played in July instead of August in 2016 due to the Olympics. It also affords players an additional two weeks from past years to earn a spot on points.

- Sunday, Sept. 11, 2016: Love will select three of his four Captain's Picks at the conclusion of the BMW Championship, scheduled to end on this day.

- Sunday, Sept. 25, 2016: Love will make his fourth and final Captain's Pick at the conclusion of the Tour Championship, scheduled to end on this day.

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 United States will have eight players determined by points, while the European Team will have nine - the first four coming from the European Points List and the next five from the World Points List. Europe has three Captain's Picks, while the USA has four.

Ryder Cup Format

Each of the first two days includes one four-match session of four-balls 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 1/2 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.
