Ryder Cup Points Through January 20, 2020
It’s a Ryder Cup year, and so begins the biennial obsession with the competition.
At this point, all the speculation is about who makes the team. The US team will be composed of the four highest ranked players on the points list, along with four Captain’s picks. Points are determined by earnings at PGA TOUR, WGC and Major events.
If the teams were picked as of this writing, the automatic picks would be Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Gary Woodland, Xander Schauffele, Tiger Woods, Justin Thomas, Webb Simpson and Kevin Kisner.
On the bubble are Patrick Cantlay, Matt Kuchar, Patrick Reed, Andrew Landry and Rickie Fowler. I have a very hard time imagining Reed getting a Captains’ Pick, so he will have to play his way on. The others would be solid picks.
Still, there’s a lot of golf to go between now and the official selections.
This year’s Ryder Cup is at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin.
