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.

Race to qualify moves closer after US PGA

Another big step has been taken in the race to qualify automatically for Thomas Bjørn’s European Ryder Cup side, following the US PGA Championship in St Louis, Missouri.

Brooks Koepka took home the Wanamaker Trophy in the year’s final Major Championship, but Jon Rahm finished in a share of fourth to sit third in the World Points List and fifth in the European Points List.

Open Champion Francesco Molinari enjoyed another fine week, taking a share of sixth with fellow European and 2016 qualifier Thomas Pieters. Molinari, who won The Open Championship last month, tops the European Points List and is 1,663,799 points clear of Justin Rose in second.

Tyrrell Hatton also earned a top ten finish to cement his position in the top four of the European Points List, alongside Molinari, Rose and last season’s Race to Dubai Champion Tommy Fleetwood.

Rory McIlroy, Alex Noren and Ian Poulter join Rahm as the four automatic qualifiers from the World Points List as things stand. While McIlroy and Poulter finished T50 and T31 respectively, Noren missed the cut at Bellerive Country Club.

There are now three remaining events left on the European Tour International Schedule that will offer up Ryder Cup points. Thorbjørn Olesen is among those with a chance to impress Bjørn at this week’s Nordea Masters, before the tour heads to the D+D REAL Czech Masters in Prague.

The final qualifying event will be the Made in Denmark Tournament, which takes place from August 30 – September 2.  In addition to the eight automatic qualifiers, Bjørn has four wildcards to select to join his team at Le Golf National in September.

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.
