MacKenzie's comeback year puts him near Ryder bubble

RSS

This could be the most hotly contested Ryder Cup ever – and we’re talking about just making the team.

So, each Monday, GolfChannel.com will take a way-too-early look at the players who are vying for one of the 12 spots on the team. Nine players make the squad via their respective points list, and both captain Tom Watson and Paul McGinley will have three wild-card picks apiece.

AMERICANS 

The current top 12:

1. Jimmy Walker, 3,940

2. Dustin Johnson, 3,759

3. Patrick Reed, 3,023

4. Bubba Watson, 3,018

5. Jason Dufner, 2,668

6. Harris English, 2,646

7. Zach Johnson, 2,584

8. Phil Mickelson, 2,537

9. Webb Simpson, 2,201

10. Ryan Moore, 2,174

11. Chris Kirk, 2,039

12. Matt Every, 1,992

Notes:

• No players moved inside the top 12 after the Valero. Of those players currently inside the top 12, only Zach Johnson (now No. 7) and Phil Mickelson swapped spots.

• Will MacKenzie has finished sixth or better in three of his last four starts, and has six top 10s overall this season. After his T-2 in San Antonio, the journeyman jumped from No. 23 to No. 14.

Matt Kuchar was tied for the lead Sunday and failed to slam the door, but his T-4 finish allowed him to move from No. 25 to No. 19. 

• This week’s Where is Tiger? update: Down from 41st to 44th
