The Ryder Cup 2016 will be taking place between September 30th and October 2nd at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska Minnesota. Europe enters the competition as cup holders after winning in 2014 in Scotland for the third consecutive time. Betting on the Ryder Cup winners will be an interesting feat as favourites pegged for previous golfing majors this year have bombed out at the last second.
There is a USA and a European team competing in the Ryder Cup. Each team consists of 8 players that have accumulated the most points throughout the year in major championships as well as another 4 captains picks. Davis Love III captains the American team.
The European team picks are slightly different with 4 being picked from all points earned in Race to Dubai tournaments, another 5 leading players not qualified in the above but with top Total World Rankings points and 3 captains picks. Darren Clark captains the European team.
This year the point’s accumulation has expanded due to the Rio Olympic Games. Cut off for points will therefore be on the 28th August. The top eight will be finalized at the conclusion of The Barclays, which is scheduled to finish on this date, as opposed to the traditional closing of points at the conclusion of the PGA Championship, which was played in July instead of August in 2016 due to the Olympics. It also affords players an additional two weeks from past years to earn a spot on points.
The Captain is Davis Love III and Vice-Captains are Jim Furyk, Tom Lehman, Steve Stricker and Tiger Woods.
