***** The Official Ryder Cup 2018 Thread *****

Recommended Posts

As mentioned by @Laudrup1984 above this week was a big one in terms of movement of players making a run for the team.

Noren & Molinari winning is huge and really cements their places in the automatic 8 players

But positives moves were made by Garcia, Rham, Knox & Wood.

Ross Fisher has been the big loser over lat couple of weeks moving out of a place and dropping out of contention just now.

 

Standings as of today for the team are now:

European Points Qualifying-

Qualified as of today: Tyrell Hatton, Justin Rose, Tommy Fleetwood, and Francesco Molinari  (Holding 4 qualifying slots)

Next in line: Alex Noren, John Rahm, Thorbjorn Oleson, Rory McIlroy, Matthew Fitzpatrick

 

World Points Qualifying-

Qualified as of today: John Rahm, Alex Noren, Rory McIroy and Paul Casey (Holding 4 qualifying slots)

Next in Line: Matthew Fitzpatrick, Sergio Garcia, Ian Poulter, Rafa Cabrera Bello & Henrik Stenson

 

No changes in the American team, however a huge move from Tiger up to 28th on the list and in real contention to play in the event.

Koepka, Johnson, Reed, Thomas, Watson,  Speith, Fowler, DeChambeau holding the 8 qualifying slots at present.

What a performance from Russell Knox to firmly thrown his hat into Ryder Cup reckoning. He showed true grit and determination and a lot of balls to win.

Another good week for Rahm has cemented his place and for Olesen has moved him closer to an automatic choice.

Standings as of today for the team are now:

European Points Qualifying-

Qualified as of today: Tyrell Hatton, Justin Rose, Tommy Fleetwood, and Francesco Molinari  (Holding 4 qualifying slots)

Next in line: Alex Noren, John Rahm, Thorbjorn Oleson, Russell Knox & Rory McIlroy.

One more week closer to September and it has been a week of consolidation for many. The solid displays of Rose, Hatton, Fitzpatrick, Knox & Poulter will have secured them more valuable qualifying points to either strengthen their place in a qualifying position or to move themselves closer to a place.

The huge positive for Bjorn will be the return to form of Thomas Pieters who we performed so well two years ago and would be a strong player again if on form.

Another positive is the continued great form of Molinari, this time with a second place finish at the John Deere in America. Over the past 6 weeks he must be the form player in the world right now.

 

Standings as of today there has been no change in the European or World qualifying positions:

European Points Qualifying-

Qualified as of today: Tyrell Hatton, Justin Rose, Tommy Fleetwood, and Francesco Molinari  (Holding 4 qualifying slots)

Next in line: Alex Noren, John Rahm, Thorbjorn Oleson, Russell Knox & Rory McIlroy.

World Points Qualifying-

Qualified as of today: John Rahm, Alex Noren, Rory McIroy and Paul Casey (Holding 4 qualifying slots)

Next in Line: Matthew Fitzpatrick, Sergio Garcia, Ian Poulter, Russell Knox & Rafa Cabrera Bello

 

Big week ahead with the Open and a good performance can spring board players into contention for September.
