Patton Kizzire soars into top 8 of Ryder Cup USA standings with Sony Open win

Just like that, Patton Kizzire is suddenly in the Ryder Cup USA conversation for 2018.

Kizzire won a marathon, six-hole, sudden-death playoff over James Hahn at the Sony Open in Hawaii on Sunday. It was Kizzire's second win of the 2017-18 Tour season, but the first in which he was able to pick up Ryder Cup USA points. 

With his victory at Waialae on Sunday, Kizzire snagged 1,234 Ryder Cup points and soared from No. 50 in last week's standings, all the way to No. 8 this week. He was the only player to move into one of the eight automatic qualifying positions based on the performance at Sony. World No. 1 Dustin Johnson still occupies the top spot.

Hahn also moved from No. 37 a week ago up to No. 13.

Kizzire's win pushed Kevin Chappell (now No. 14) out of the top 12.

The Sony Open in Hawaii marked the first full-field event for U.S. players to gain points in 2018 -- something they'll be able to do 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.

EurAsia Cup victory bodes well for Europe

With 2018 upon us, thoughts are already turning towards the inevitable drama set to unfold at Le Golf National in eight months’ time. Thomas Bjørn will captain a European side eager to win back the Samuel Ryder trophy in September, taking on Jim Furyk’s United States in Paris. 

Bjørn had the opportunity to run the rule over some of the brightest talent from the continent when he led his European team to victory in the EurAsia Cup presented by DRB-HICOM in Malaysia. The 2017 Race to Dubai Champion Tommy Fleetwood and Tyrrell Hatton both secured a maximum three points as Europe’s 12-man team came from behind to beat Asia on a thrilling final day in Kuala Lumpur.

Running alongside the EurAsia Cup, the calendar year kicked off with the BMW SA Open hosted by the City of Ekurhuleni, with Chris Paisley taking the title and earning valuable Ryder Cup points. 

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. 

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.
