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 T2 in the WGC-HSBC Champions in China on Sunday.

The event was the last chance this year for Americans to earn 2018 Ryder Cup points. The points race begins anew in January at the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.

Also tying for second in China was Dustin Johnson, who climbed to fourth in the rankings. Johnson was in position to win the WGC-HSBC Champions before shooting 5-over par in the final round. 

Here is the current top 12 (and ties):

1. Brooks Koepka, 3,404.658
2. Justin Thomas, 2,509.723
3. Jordan Spieth, 2,365.412
4. Dustin Johnson, 2,339.739
5. Matt Kuchar, 2,133.466
6. Brian Harman, 1,352.852
7. Rickie Fowler, 1,286.937
8. Patrick Reed, 1,144.244

-------------------------------

9. Bill Haas, 927.772
10. Charley Hoffman, 890.709
11. Zach Johnson, 877.254
12. Kevin Chappell, 651.087

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 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:

2018 Regular PGA Tour events:

  • 1 point per $1,000 earned (Beginning Jan. 1, 2018, through the PGA Championship, Aug. 12, 2018; includes the Zurich Classic of New Orleans team event and WGC events)

2018 Opposite Field PGA TOUR events will NOT receive points

2018 Major Championships: 

  • 2 Points per $1,000 earned for the Winner; 1.5 Points per $1,000 earned for all others to make the cut (The Masters; U.S. Open; Open Championship; PGA Championship)

Koepka was a star in his Ryder Cup debut at Hazeltine last fall, going 3-1-0 as a member of the first winning U.S. team since 2008, a squad that defeated Europe convincingly, 17-11.

The confidence gained from that pressure cooker of a week in Chaska, Minn., proved to be an invaluable experience for Koepka in Erin, Wis., where he claimed his first major championship -- the U.S. Open at Erin Hills -- in dominate fashion, topping his nearest pursuers by four strokes.

Ryder Cup race in full swing

The race to qualify for The 2018 Ryder Cup is in full swing with early statements of intent from Europe’s young guns.

Since the start of the European Ryder Cup points race at the D+D REAL Czech Masters, Matt Fitzpatrick (23), Romain Wattel (26), Lucas Bjerregaard (26), Paul Dunne (24) and Tyrrell Hatton (25) have all entered the winners’ enclosure to get some early points on the board.

Add in the emergence of Jon Rahm, who has risen to world number five at the age of 22, and the prospective European team already has a youthful feel to it in the very early stages of qualification.

These performances have caught the eye of European Captain Thomas Bjørn, who was clearly pleased with the early movers and as he indicated in his blog last month.

“It was almost like I’d written a wish-list!” he said. “I fully appreciate it is very early days in the overall process, but by the end of this season in Dubai in November we will start to get a proper indication of how things are shaping up. It is going to make for some very interesting viewing over the next few months.”

The European team will comprise four players from the European Points List and four players from the World Points List, with four Captain’s Picks. New for 2018 will also be increased weighting from May 24 to the end of the qualification period with money or world ranking points won multiplied by 1.5.

Before then there are plenty of big events which could well have a bearing on the final make-up of the European team, particularly with four Rolex Series events before the end of the 2017 season over the next few weeks.

The Ryder Cup Year to Go celebrations taking place in Paris will also mark another milestone for Captain Bjørn as he welcomes US Ryder Cup Captain Jim Furyk to the French capital and Le Golf National, host venue for The 2018 Ryder Cup.
