Kevin Chappell returns to Top 12, Andrew Landry debuts on Ryder Cup USA standings

There wasn't much movement in this week's Ryder Cup USA ranking as eight of the top 12 players were off this week. But the CareerBuilder Challenge allowed the opportunity for a few players to gain points and move up in the points race.

Most notably, Kevin Chappell's T-6 performance moved him back into the top 12 after he dropped to No. 14 last week. Charley Hoffman, who was at No. 12 is now at 14.

Andrew Landry, who fell to Jon Rahm in a four-hole, sudden-death playoff at PGA West, makes his debut on the Ryder Cup USA ranking this week at No. 19.

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.

Europeans shine with hat-trick of victories

Tommy Fleetwood, Sergio Garcia and Jon Rahm all picked up their first wins of 2018 with Europeans triumphing on three different tours last week.

Reigning Race to Dubai champion Fleetwood made another spectacular start to the season by winning the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship presented by EGA for a second successive year.

A back-nine birdie blitz on Sunday saw the 27 year old become just the second player after Martin Kaymer to defend the Abu Dhabi crown and, after holding off challenges from the likes of Rory McIlroy and World Number One Dustin Johnson Fleetwood, has risen up both the European and World Points lists.

Also continuing his ascent up the ranks of world golf last week was Rahm. After holding his nerve to triumph in a four-hole play-off at the PGA Tour’s CareerBuilder Challenge, the Spaniard has moved up to a career-high second place in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Completing the trio of European silverware was Garcia, who cruised to a comprehensive five-shot victory in the Asian Tour’s Singapore Open.

The points race, which began at the REAL D+D Czech Masters last year, will heat up further 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. With plenty to look forward to, the build-up to The 2018 Ryder Cup promises to be one of the most fascinating yet.

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.
