Bryson DeChambeau makes biggest move in latest Ryder Cup USA points standings

The only movement in the top 10 of the Ryder Cup USA standings at Bay Hill came at the No. 9 and No. 10 spots.

Rickie Fowler moved to No. 9 based on his T14 finish and bumped Gary Woodland to No. 10. 

But the biggest mover this week was Bryson DeChambeau. He was the runner-up to Rory McIlroy in the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Sunday and made a significant leap from No. 56 to No. 15 this week to very much get his name in the USA conversation for his first Ryder Cup appearance.

Tiger Woods, who tied for fifth at Bay Hill, continued to move north in the standings. He went up from No. 32 a week ago to No. 24.

None of the top 6 players in the standings -- Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Phil Mickelson, Jordan Spieth or Matt Kuchar -- teed it up at Bay Hill, but all maintained their positions.

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. 

Here's how players will earn points in 2018.
