Ryder Cup: Who's currently on Team USA, Europe entering 2021?


Get ready golf fans, because we’re just a few days away from turning the calendar to a Ryder Cup year.

The pandemic forced the postponement of the 43rd biennial battle between the United States and Europe, originally scheduled for Sept. 25-27 at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin. Twelve of the best American and European male golfers will now play Sept. 24-26, 2021, still at Whistling Straits.

In August, Team USA changed its selection criteria for the 2021 event. All points earned by U.S. players since qualification began in 2019 will be recognized, and the time to accrue points was extended through the 2021 BMW Championship (Aug. 26-29). The top six players on the points list will qualify, with U.S. captain Steve Stricker making the final six picks following the 2021 Tour Championship (Sept. 2-5).

Team Europe will take the top four players on its European Points List, as well as the top five players on its World Points List who didn’t qualify from the European list. Captain Padraig Harrington will make his three final picks the week of Monday, Sept. 13, 2021.

Here’s how the teams currently stand entering 2021.
