U.S. Team Qualifiers Set for Ryder Cup, Plus European Team Update

The Ryder Cup is rapidly approaching.

The United States and Europe will face off in Italy for the first time, as the 2023 edition of the biennial competition will be played Sept. 25-Oct. 1 at Rome’s Marco Simone Golf & Country Club.

Six players will automatically qualify for each team while the remaining half of each roster will be decided by captain’s picks from the United States’ Zach Johnson and Europe’s Luke Donald.

The teams use different criteria to determine their six automatic qualifiers. U.S. players earn qualifying points based on money earned between the 2022 and 2023 BMW Championships. The top six on the points list after the BMW earn spots on the U.S. roster.

The European team utilizes two different criteria to determine its six automatic qualifiers – a European Points list based on points earned on the DP World Tour and a World Points list based on the Official World Golf Ranking.

European players began earning points at the 2022 BMW PGA Championship, and their qualifying window closes Sept. 3. The top three players on the European Points list earn spots on the team, as do the top three players on the World Points list who did not already earn a spot on the European list.

See below for the qualifiers for U.S. Team and Europe as of Aug. 20, 2023.

Note: The U.S. Team has announced that Scottie Scheffler, Wyndham Clark, Patrick Cantlay, Brian Harman, Max Homa and Xander Schauffele have secured automatic qualifying berths.
