Ryder Cup European Team
The final European Ryder Cup team will be confirmed nearer the time but you can see the qualification lists below.
Ryder Cup Qualification
Here is a list of the qualification standings for the European Ryder Cup team. The qualification was split into two lists as so many of Europe's golfers split their season between the US and Europe.
The Ryder Cup World Points List is comprised of world ranking points won by a European Tour member from each tournament between September 2015 and August 2016. These World Points are taken from any official sanctioned tournaments by the World Golf ranking, if one of the top five has already qualified from the European Points List then the next player down qualifies and the top five on that list will automatically qualify.
