Brooks Koepka leads Ryder Cup USA standings heading into 2018

Brooks Koepka soared to the top of the 2018 American Ryder Cup rankings after his U.S. Open victory in June. That’s where he remains after a runner-up finish in the WGC-HSBC Champions in China.

The event was the last chance in 2017 for Americans to earn points toward the 2018 Ryder Cup at Le Golf National in Paris. The points race begins anew in January at the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii, where each PGA Tour event (excluding events opposite a major or WGC) will have points available.

Also tying for second in China was Dustin Johnson, who dropped to fourth in the ranking after spending much of 2017 at No. 1. Johnson was in position to win the WGC-HSBC Champions before shooting 5-over par in the final round. 

The points process for the American team will conclude on Aug. 12, 2018, following the 100th PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis, with the top eight players on the points list securing spots on the U.S. Team.

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.

Ryder Cup race in full swing

Headed into the festive break, the 2018 European Ryder Cup team is gradually beginning to take shape.

The recently crowned Race to Dubai champion, Tommy Fleetwood, has moved into the projected team thanks to his end-of-season form, including a top ten finish in Hong Kong. He is joined in the World Points List by Masters champion Sergio Garcia, England's Ross Fisher and young Irishman Paul Dunne.

As for the European Points List, it is made up of four of the most in-form players in the world in the form of Justin Rose, Tyrrell Hatton, Jon Rahm and Matthew Fitzpatrick. All four are currently ranked inside the top 30 in the Official Golf World Rankings, thanks to their play over the last twelve months. 

Of the eight players in the current projections, four would be rookies at Le Golf National in September.

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.
