Michael Kim makes huge jump in Ryder Cup USA rankings after John Deere Classic win
Michael Kim earned his first PGA Tour win in dominating fashion at the John Deere Classic by finishing 27-under. He used that victory to move up 67 places from No. 117 to No. 50 in the Ryder Cup USA rankings.
Kim was also the biggest mover of the week thanks to his John Deere Classic win. In the Ryder Cup Points standings, almost the entire top 20 remained the same. Zach Johnson moved up one spot to No. 20.
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.
