Eight U.S. Ryder Cup automatic qualifiers set after PGA Championship

With the conclusion of the 100th PGA Championship at Bellerive, eight of the 12 spots on Ryder Cup USA have been filled by automatic qualifiers.

Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Patrick Reed, Bubba Watson, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler and Webb Simpson – in that order – are the automatic qualifiers for the 2018 U.S. team.

The four remaining spots will be Captain's selections. Three will be announced by Captain Jim Furyk following the Dell Technologies Championship on Sept. 3, and the final selection will be announced after the BMW Championship on Sept. 9.

Koepka was the top point-getter for the U.S. thanks to his back-to-back wins at the U.S. Open, followed by his PGA Championship win at Bellerive. 

Johnson was first in the standings prior to the PGA Championship. He will play in his fourth Ryder Cup.

Thomas will make his Ryder Cup debut after clinching a spot on the team with his win at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Reigning Masters Champion Patrick Reed will make his third consecutive Ryder Cup appearance. Two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson will play in his fourth Ryder Cup.

At just 25 years old, Spieth will play in his third career Ryder Cup. Spieth won The Open in 2017 at Royal Birkdale.

Fowler finished second at the Masters and he earned a pair of T5 finishes in majors last year.

Simpson claimed the eighth and final automatic qualifying spot for the American Ryder Cup team.

Olesen makes form count in Sweden

In a week where Paul Waring won his maiden European Tour title at his 200th attempt after a play off victory over Thomas Aiken in the Nordea Masters, Thorbjørn Olesen moved into the automatic qualification spots for this year’s European Ryder Cup side.

The Dane, who has been in great form since his victory at the Italian Open, finished in solo fourth after rounds 68, 66, 67 and 67 to finish 12 under par for the tournament – two back of Waring and Aiken. 

This high finish saw Olesen, nicknamed “Thunderbear,” leapfrog Ian Poulter into the final qualifying spot on the World Points List and, with just two European Tour events left before the first eight players are confirmed, Olesen will look to remain there. 

After his Italian Open win, a Rolex Series event, Olesen has a further four T6 or better finishes including a tie for second at the BMW International Open and a T3 at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, as well as a T12 finish at The Open.

As it stands, Francesco Molinari, Justin Rose, Tyrrell Hatton and Tommy Fleetwood make up the four players qualifying on the European Points List. Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Alex Noren and Olesen make up the following four players on the World Points List. 

The European Tour heads to Prague for the D+D REAL Czech Masters this week, before the final qualifying event at the Made In Denmark Tournament a week later. 

In addition to his eight qualifiers, Thomas Bjørn will have four further wildcard selections the following week to join his team at Le Golf National. 

This gives the likes of Rafa Cabrera-Bello, Russell Knox, Eddie Pepperell and Poulter, who are all on the bubble, just two weeks to make up the required points, otherwise they will be relying on a wildcard pick from captain Bjørn.

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 European Team will comprise the first 4 players from the European Points List, followed by the leading 4 players from the World Points List and completed by 4 wild cards. The US Team will be made up from the top 8 in the points rankings with 4 captain's picks

Ryder Cup Format

Each of the first two days includes one four-match session of four-ball 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 ½ 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.
