Ryder Cup: Brandt Snedeker makes massive move at crucial time

When it comes to Ryder Cup USA implications, no one left the Wyndham Championship with a bigger smile than Brandt Snedeker on Sunday.

Snedeker tied for third in Greensboro, his second top-5 finish in three starts and his best finish this season since a win at the Farmers Insurance Open in January.

With his stellar play, Snedeker climbed three spots from No. 9 to No. 6 in the latest Ryder Cup USA standings -- a massive move with just one week left to collect points, which close Sunday evening at the conclusion of the Barclays. 

J.B. Holmes didn't do anything to help his cause with a missed cut in Greensboro and was also the victim of Snedeker's performance. Holmes slipped from No. 7 to No. 9 (and Zach Johnson dropped from No. 6 to No. 7).

Another player who continues to climb is Jim Furyk. His tie for 10th at the Wyndham Championship -- his second top-10 in as many starts -- bumped Furyk from No. 18 to No. 15. 

Here's on last look at 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 was 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.

Nine qualifiers set for Hazeltine

The nine automatic qualifiers for the European Ryder Cup Team bound for Hazeltine were confirmed last night with Captain Darren Clarke heralding the “fantastic blend of youth and experience”.

Matt Fitzpatrick sealed his Ryder Cup debut by finishing fifth in the D+D REAL Czech Masters as Thomas Pieters narrowly missed out on the victory he needed in Prague to possibly keep the qualifying race alive and with Shane Lowry finishing outside the top four in the Wyndham Championship in the US. 

Europe will therefore seek a record fourth successive Ryder Cup victory with at least five rookies on the team when they take on the United States from September 30 to October 2 – Rafa Cabrera Bello, Fitzpatrick, Andy Sullivan, Danny Willett and Chris Wood will all be making their debuts. 

Rory McIlroy, Willett, Henrik Stenson, Wood gained qualification as the current top four players on the Ryder Cup European Points List with Sergio Garcia, Justin Rose, Cabrera Bello, Sullivan and Fitzpatrick coming through the Ryder Cup World Points List.

European Captain Clarke will name his three wild cards to complete the 12-man team on Tuesday 30 August.

Clarke said: “I am absolutely delighted with the nine players who have qualified for The 2016 European Ryder Cup team. They offer not only a fantastic blend of youth and experience but also, already, some exciting partnership possibilities.

“In the experienced corner we have the two men who have lit up the world of golf in recent weeks – Open champion Henrik Stenson and Olympic champion Justin Rose – joined by Sergio Garcia and Rory McIlroy who, aside from being two of the most dynamic Ryder Cup performers of recent years, are also winners this year in their own right: Sergio in the US and Rory in Europe.

“In the rookies’ corner, it is very rare you begin any such list with the reigning Masters champion but we are fortunate to do just that with Danny Willett, while Rafa Cabrera Bello, Matt Fitzpatrick, Andy Sullivan and Chris Wood bring a mixture of consistency and success that any Ryder Cup captain looks for over the course of a qualification campaign.

“Now no-one else can force their way into the nine automatic spots, I am delighted to have two tournaments this week – the Made in Denmark tournament in Europe and The Barclays tournament in the US – to assess the form of potential players to fill the three Wild Card spots.”

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.
