2018 Ryder Cup - Player Profiles

Europe - Team Captain: Darren Clarke

Player profiles for the 2016 Ryder Cup team at Hazeltine, with current qualifying position, world ranking and past Ryder Cup points record:

Rory McIlroy qualified as Europe's number one pick for the Ryder Cup and he boasts a wealth of experience, including some fine recent form as he signed off from America by winning the Tour Championship and FedEx Cup.

 

Danny Willett is making his debut at Hazeltine for Europe and the reigning Masters champion will be well known to the American crowds after winning his maiden major title at Augusta earlier this year.

 

Henrik Stenson has enjoyed a fantastic 2016 campaign as he finally won his first major title with victory at The Open Championship and he can now look forward to the fourth Ryder Cup appearance of his career.

 

Chris Wood earned automatic qualification for the Ryder Cup team by finishing fourth on the European Points List and it is just reward for a campaign that saw him win the prestigious BMW PGA Championship.

 

Sergio Garcia has been lightly raced in horse racing terms this year but he brings a wealth of Ryder Cup experience to the table, with the legendary Spaniard winning 20.5 points for Europe during his career.

 

Like Garcia, Justin Rose has been an exceptional performer for Europe during the Ryder Cup and the Englishman heads to Hazeltine as an Olympic gold medallist.

 

Rafa Cabrera-Bello has been in good touch this year as he earned his automatic spot on the Ryder Cup team, while he has a decent pedigree in matchplay golf which should stand him in good stead at Hazeltine.

 

Andy Sullivan has been rewarded for another season of consistency on the European Tour with a debut appearance at the Ryder Cup, although this will be a stern test of his credentials.

 

Matthew Fitzpatrick is one of six European debutants at the Ryder Cup in 2016 and the 22-year-old has enjoyed something of a breakthrough this year, finishing T7 at the US Open and winning his second European Tour title at the Nordea Masters.

 

Lee Westwood has been a stalwart of Europe's Ryder Cup success in recent years but his waning personal form in recent years meant that he was indebted to a wildcard from captain Darren Clarke this time around.

 

Martin Kaymer has shown nerves of steel in the past and his ice cold demeanour will need to be on show at a partisan Hazeltine.

 

Thomas Pieters timed a sensational run of form to perfection as top-five finishes in Rio and the Czech Republic were followed by victory in Denmark and a Ryder Cup wildcard.

2018 Ryder Cup - Player Profiles

United States - Team Captain: Davis Love III

Player profiles for the top 12 candidates to make the 2016 Ryder Cup team, with current qualifying position, world ranking and past Ryder Cup points record:

 

Dustin Johnson has arguably been the form man in world golf this year as the American has been sensational. DJ has never been in better form going into his two previous Ryder Cup appearances but he should have a big part to play at Hazeltine.

 

By his own high standards, Jordan Spieth has endured a relatively quiet year but he has still won two titles and finished runner-up at the Masters!

 

Phil Mickelson has been quietly consistent again this year but the veteran American will be desperate to improve on what is actually quite a poor Ryder Cup record.

 

Patrick Reed earned plenty of unwanted headlines when 'bigging' himself up in the media a few years ago but he is delivering on the promise now and arrives at Hazeltine off the back of a recent win at The Barclays.

 

Jimmy Walker has qualified automatically for his second Ryder Cup after appearing at Gleneagles in 2014 and it was his win at the USPGA Championship that propelled him to automatic selection this time.

 

Brooks Koepka is set to make his Ryder Cup debut in 2016 as he reaps the rewards of a wonderfully consistent season, while it is worth noting that Koepka has won five of his eight World Matchplay matches.

 

Brandt Snedeker has recovered from an injury-ravaged 2014 to propel himself back towards the head of golf and he qualified automatically for the USA team following a season that saw him win the Farmers Insurance Open.

 

Zach Johnson is something of a veteran as far as the Ryder Cup goes as he is making his fifth appearance for USA in 2016, with the American winning seven points at a win-rate of 50% previously.

 
 

Rickie Fowler remains arguably the best player not to win a major in world golf and he failed to qualify for the American team automatically. Davis Love III has handed him a wildcard, despite the fact Fowler is yet to win a match in two previous appearances for his country.

 

Matt Kuchar has enjoyed a fine 2016 campaign as he has racked up a plethora of top-ten finishes and he is a player who is a tough nut to crack at the Ryder Cup, with Kuchar losing just two of his eleven previous matches.

 

JB Holmes has had to wait a long time for his second Ryder Cup appearance after making his debut in 2008. Holmes didn't lost a single match eight years ago though and he earned a captain's pick from Davis Love III.

 

Ryan Moore pipped Bubba Watson for the final captain's wildcard as he signed off the Fed Ex Cup with a runner-up spot at the Tour Championship. Moore is set to make his Ryder Cup debut at Hazeltine.
