AKRON, Ohio – The wide gap between the eight automatic qualifying berths for the United States Ryder Cup team and those on the outside looking in may tighten up on Sunday.
Stricker, in a share of fourth, could move as high as seventh with a win, but can't crack the top-eight with anything less.
And 54-hole leader Furyk, up by one stroke over Louis Oosthuizen, would pass Mahan's current total with a win, but still wouldn't squeeze into the top-eight because Mahan (T-49 in the tournament) is guaranteed of at least 40 points, even with a last-place finish.
Next week's PGA Championship is the final tournament in which U.S. players can earn points, with double points available at the year's final major.
