One point is awarded for each $1,000 earned in regular PGA Tour events. Two points are awarded for every $1,000 earned at a major championship. The top eight players in the standings after the PGA Championship automatically qualify for the American team heading to Medinah from Sept. 28-30.
Last month at Pebble Beach, Love III said he did not expect Woods to have trouble making the team.
'So I think if (Tiger) has a full, healthy season, we won't be worrying about picking him. But it's nice with four picks, I got a lot of flexibility,” he said.
The captain had previously indicated Woods was a virtual lock to make the team, either on merit or with one of the four captain’s picks.
