Jim Herman enjoys bump in standings with win in Greensboro
It was impossible to catch Jim Herman on the weekend at the Wyndham Championship where he went low with rounds of 61 – 63 to capture his third career win on the PGA Tour. Herman, who was ranked at No. 318 in the Official World Golf Ranking before his victory, won by one stroke ahead of Billy Horschel in Greensboro, North Carolina.
With his victory, Herman soared 71 spots in the U.S. Ryder Cup point standings to No. 33. He’ll have his work cut out for him to continue to climb the standings over the next year, as the qualifying period was extended ahead of the matches in 2021, but he is building a strong case for making his first Ryder Cup team having secured his second victory during the qualifying period. Herman also won the 2019 Barbasol Championship.
With his second-place finish in Greensboro, Horschel jumped 13 spots to No. 16 in the point standings. Doc Redman, who finished T3 with Kevin Kisner, Webb Simpson and Si Woo Kim, also made a jump in the standings, up 16 spots to No. 47.
In addition to the top six players in the standings qualifying for the U.S. Team, Captain Steve Stricker will also have six Captain Selections to round out his squad. Dustin Johnson sits atop the standings following his runner-up finish at the PGA Championship. Brooks Koepka sits at No. 2 in the standings, followed by 2020 PGA Champion Collin Morikawa at No. 3. Justin Thomas, Webb Simpson and Bryson DeChambeau currently round out the top 6. Click here for the current standings.
