TEAMS: Eight members of the United States team were determined by a points system that began in March of 2015 and ended on Aug. 28, 2016, at the conclusion of The Barclays tournament on the PGA Tour. Points are awarded to eligible players based on money won. Captain Davis Love will then make four Captain's Picks – three on Sept. 12, 2016, and the final one on Sept. 25, 2016.
