U.S. Ryder Cup standings update: Bryson DeChambeau moves into top 8 with win

With the 2019 Ryder Cup in France approaching, we will provide weekly updates on the U.S. standings, including risers and possible captain's picks.

Bryson DeChambeau prevailed over a deep field last week at the Memorial Tournament, vaulting himself inside the top eight in the Ryder Cup standings.

The top eight players in the standings automatically make the U.S. team, with captain Jim Furyk using his four picks to fill out the rest of the squad. Currently, Patrick Reed, Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler, Brooks Koepka and DeChambeau are in the top eight.

But DeChambeau wasn't the only player to make a big leap. Kyle Stanley, who lost in the playoff, moved up from 36th to 17th. Patrick Cantlay, who finished fourth, moved from 42nd to 31st.

As it stands, Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods look like obvious captains' picks, but who should Furyk select if the points closed this week?

Mickelson looked like a lock to make the roster automatically earlier this year when he was seemingly inside the top 5 every week. A slight drop in form had knocked him out of the top eight, but he's going to be on the team. His spot is safe, barring injury.

It would be bold to leave Woods off the squad if he's still in form this fall. But his back might not hold up for a full year, making competitive golf in September a luxury he may not be able to afford.

If the standings ended this week, Mickelson (9), Webb Simpson (10), Matt Kuchar (11) and Jimmy Walker (15) should get the call to France this fall.

Ryder Cup Matches Play Explained

All games are played under Match Play rules, where the result of each game is determined by the number of holes won. The order of play for the first two days is Foursomes in the morning and Fourball in the afternoon. The final day's play will be in Singles format.

Fourball (four groups of two two-man teams) - "Fourball" play is a match in which each member of the two-man teams plays their own ball. Four balls are in play per hole with each of the four players competing. The team whose player has the lowest score on that hole wins the hole. Should players from each team tie for the best score, the hole is halved.

Foursomes (four groups of two two-man teams) - "Foursomes" play is a match where two golfers play together against two other golfers and each team plays one ball. The golfers play alternate shots (player A hits tee shot, player B hits second shot, etc) until the hole is played out. Team members alternate playing the tee shots, with one golfer hitting the tee shot on odd-numbered holes, and the other hitting the tee shot on the even-numbered holes. The team with the better score wins the hole. Should the two teams tie for best score, the hole is halved.

Singles (12 groups of two one-man teams) - "Singles" is a match in which one player competes against another player. A player wins the match when he is up by more holes than there are holes remaining to play.

Pairings - Each Team Captain independently submits the order of play for his Team to the appointed tournament official. The lists from each Captain are matched, resulting in the "Pairings". Please note that the players in pairings can be modified by the Team Captains only if a player is ill or injured. Pairings are subject to change and should not be considered final until play begins for a particular match
