2012 Ryder Cup: Team Europe Standings

2012 Ryder Cup: Team Europe Standings

The Europeans have dominated the Americans in Ryder Cup competition over the past 10 years winning 4 of the last 5 match play events.  To earn 1 of the 12 spots on Team Europe golfers must finish in the top 5 of the Ryder Cup European Points List or the Ryder Cup World Points List (after selecting the top 5 players from the Ryder Cup European Points List).  Points for the Ryder Cup European Points List are determined by money earned (1 Euro = 1 Point) by European Tour Members from all officially sanctioned tournaments on The European Tour Race to Dubai from September 1, 2011 until the conclusion of the Johnnie Walker Championship on August 26, 2012. The Ryder Cup World Points List will consist of World Ranking Points won by a European Tour Member from each tournament in which he participates from September 1, 2011 through August 26, 2012.  The remaining 2 spots will be selected by captain José Maria Olazábal after the Johnnie Walker Championship in September 2012.
