Potential United States Ryder Cup Captain Picks
- Jordan Spieth
- Sam Burns
- Justin Thomas
- Collin Morikawa
- Tony Finau
- Sahith Theegala
- Keegan Bradley
- Wyndham Clark
- Kurt Kitayama
- Dustin Johnson
Those players are all currently not inside the top six in terms of points, so they would need to be captain’s picks. Historically, the captain’s picks are determined by experience and who is playing well of late.
Often, some players do not qualify via points but have plenty of experience and deserve to make the team. Other times, players are playing extremely well toward the end of the summer but need more points to qualify. Given their recent form, they are also deserving.
United States captain Zach Johnson will make his selections following the 2023 Tour Championship.
