UPDATED (24 July 2008): The latest standings for the US Ryder Cup team are shown below. This is following the latest qualifying events and also takes into account the news that Tiger Woods will be missing from the Ryder Cup this year.

    I must not be able to add or follow directions but any reason Mickleson is not in the top 10 or even in the top 25 ?

    Hi Deb,

    I just had a quick look and Phil Mickelson finished joint 24th in the 2007 Augusta Masters which earned him $63,800. Under the new rules this earns him one point for every $1000, thus he earned 63.8 points leaving him just outside the top 25. For the moment!
