Stricker to get to pick half of US Ryder Cup team

U.S. captain Steve Stricker would pick half of his 12-man Ryder Cup team under a revised points system that accounts for golf not being played for three months during the COVID-19 pandemic. Qualifying for the top six Americans also was extended by one week through the BMW Championship, the second of three FedEx Cup playoff events.
That leaves 12 events for Americans to earn Ryder Cup points for the September 25-27 matches at Whistling Straits, assuming the Ryder Cup is held this year. A decision is expected by the end of the month on whether the event will proceed with or without fans, or be postponed until next year.
