One of four rookies on Captain Corey Pavin's squad, Jeff Overton, along with Rickie Fowler, are the first players in Team USA history to make a Ryder Cup team without having won a PGA Tour event. Ranked No. 46 in the world and fourth on the PGA Tour money list at the time of his making the U.S. team, Overton got hot at the right time, tying for 11th at the Open Championship (double Ryder Cup points) and finishing in the top 12 in six of his last seven events prior to the PGA Championship, where he finished a disappointing 71st.
