The United States may have its best Ryder Cup team in history. Which one of its members will lead the team in scoring this weekend?
According to the latest oddsmakers, Dustin Johnson is favored to be the top American scorer, as he has 5/1 odds. Other short odds for this prop are Brooks Koepka and Justin Thomas, who each have 6/1 odds. Tiger Woods is one of three golfers with 7/1 odds. The Ryder Cup is a 3-day event, featuring 4 foursomes and 4 fourball matches each of the first two days and then 12 singles matches on Sunday. Each match is done in match-play format and is worth 1 point to the winner or ½ on a tie. The 2018 Ryder Cup takes place Friday-Sunday from Le Golf National, Albatros Course in Guyancourt, France.
Johnson is set to play in his fourth Ryder Cup. He comes into this year with a 6-5 record in matches at the Ryder Cup. Johnson is No. 1 in the world rankings right now and he has had a strong 2018 season with three wins and 12 top-10 finishes.
Thomas is making his Ryder Cup debut this year. He played in the Presidents Cup last year and finished with 3.5 points after a 3-1-1 record. Thomas comes into the weekend fourth in the world rankings. He picked up two wins this year and had 10 top-10 finishes.
Koepka is playing in his second Ryder Cup. He had a strong showing in his first in 2016, going 3-1 through four matches. Koepka is currently third in the world rankings thanks to his two major championships in 2018.
Tiger Woods is playing in his eighth Ryder Cup. He actually doesn’t have a great history at the event, posting just a 13-17-3 record over 33 matches. Woods is coming off his first win in five years last weekend at the TOUR Championship and has seven top-10 finishes on the year.
