Team USA announces second automatic qualifier for 2023 Ryder Cup in Italy
Wyndham Clark’s breakout year on the PGA Tour has now officially earned him a spot on the 2023 Ryder Cup team.
The 2023 U.S. Open champion will represent the red, white, and blue when the Americans take on the Europeans in the biennial bash at Marco Simone Golf and Country Club near Rome, Italy, Oct. 29-Sept. 1, and joins world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler as the first two players to qualify for Team USA.
The 29-year-old has seven top-10 and 12 top-25 finishes this season on Tour with wins at the U.S. Open and Wells Fargo Championship. He previously represented the U.S. at the 2014 Palmer Cup where he earned one point out of four and lost to Jon Rahm, 4 and 3, in Saturday singles.
Those still vying for a spot on the U.S. team can earn points through the 2022 BMW Championship, the second of three FedEx Cup Playoff tournaments. The top six eligible players on the points list at that time will make the U.S. team. The final six spots will be captain’s picks by Zach Johnson and will be announced after the Tour Championship.
