Tiger Woods misses US Ryder Cup team qualification

Tiger Woods failed to qualify for one of the automatic spots on the US Ryder Cup team when the selection race ended after the USPGA on Sunday.

The world number one tied for 28th at Whistling Straits to finish 12th in the Ryder Cup standings with the top eight receiving a place on the US team. Woods will now have to rely on one of four wildcard picks on 7 September.

USPGA runner-up Bubba Watson sealed his debut in third place, but Anthony Kim and Lucas Glover also missed out. Masters champion Phil Mickelson topped the standings from WGC Bridgestone Invitational winner Hunter Mahan as Watson, Jim Furyk, Steve Stricker, Dustin Johnson, Jeff Overton and Matt Kuchar made up the eight who qualified for the 1-3 October match at Celtic Manor.
