There were no changes among the top 10 in the latest U.S. Ryder Cup standings, but there was plenty of shifting right below.

WGC-Dell Technologies champion Billy Horschel moved up seven spots to No. 11. The top six players at the end of the second FedExCup playoffs event will automatically secure spots. U.S. captain Steve Stricker will have six wildcard selections to round out his team.

WGC-Match Play runner-up Scottie Scheffler gained eight spots to No. 14. Matt Kuchar, who finished third, is now 23rd in the standings, a bump of six places.

On the European side, Victor Perez moved closer to making his first team by virtue of his fourth-place showing in Austin, Texas. The Frenchman is now second in the European's world points standing. The top 5 from there, along with four players from a European points list, will automatically qualify.

European captain Padraig Harrington gets three picks.

Here’s the current top 12 players in the U.S. standings:

1. Dustin Johnson
2. Bryson DeChambeau
3. Justin Thomas
4. Brooks Koepka
5. Collin Morikawa
6. Xander Schauffele
7. Patrick Reed
8. Tony Finau
