Bryson DeChambeau moves to No. 13 in latest Ryder Cup USA standings with T3 at Harbor Town

Bryson DeChambeau put together one heck of a late rally in the RBC Heritage at Harbor Town Golf Links in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, on Sunday, but wound up finished tied for third and one shot out of a playoff.

DeChambeau bogeyed the 13th and 14th holes to seemingly fall out of contention, but roared back with birdies on each of the final four holes for a 66. It was DeChambeau's fourth top-10 finish this season and it moved him up five spots from No. 18 to No. 13 in the latest Ryder Cup USA points standings.

While world No. 1 Dustin Johnson played in his home state event last week, many of the other top players in the world decided to take the week off following a grueling Masters.

As a result, there was no movement in the top 12 from a week ago. Masters champion Patrick Reed still occupies the top spot, with Justin Thomas, Johnson, Jordan Spieth and Bubba Watson rounding out the top 5, in that order.

Luke List -- T3 at Hilton Head -- moved from No. 20 in the standings to No. 15. Webb Simpson, meanwhile, was the only player to play his way into the top 20 of the USA standings. He moved from No. 25 to No. 19 thanks to a T5 at Harbor Town.

U.S. players will continue to gain points in 2018 at every non-opposite PGA Tour event, WGC and major through the 100th PGA Championship at Bellerive, concluding on August 12, 2018.

At that time, Captain Jim Furyk will have his first eight players -- automatic qualifiers.

The four remaining slots on the U.S. Team will be Captain's Selections. Three selections will be announced by Captain Jim Furyk following the Dell Technologies Championship scheduled to be completed on Sept. 3, 2018, and the final selection will be announced after the BMW Championship, which is slated to be completed on Sept. 9, 2018. 

Here's how players will earn points in 2018.

Red-hot Rahm boosts Ryder Cup hopes

World Number Four Jon Rahm has enhanced his aspirations for a Ryder Cup debut at Le Golf National in September with a fine victory at the Open de España. 

The 23 year old secured an emotional win at Centro Nacional de Golf as he became the sixth Spaniard to triumph at his home Open following a final round 67. That followed a fourth placed finish at the Masters Tournament, strengthening his grip on a place in Thomas Bjørn’s 12-man team for Paris while Ireland’s Paul Dunne, who finished two shots back, is now seventh in the European Points list. 

Ryder Cup stalwart Ian Poulter, who snatched a late place at the Masters Tournament following his play-off triumph at the Houston Open on the US PGA Tour earlier this month, was in contention for a second victory of the season at the RBC Heritage in South Carolina as he approached the back nine just one shot off the lead. 

The 42 year old eventually finished tied seventh but still climbed to eighth in the World Points List, leapfrogging countryman Matt Fitzpatrick who tied for 14th place on eight under par at the same tournament. 

Englishman Tyrrell Hatton still leads the way on the European Points list, whilst Justin Rose, who has competed in four previous Ryder Cups, occupies second spot. Ross Fisher, another Englishman, makes up the top four along with Open de España winner Rahm. 

Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy, Englishman Tommy Fleetwood, Spaniard Sergio Garcia and Swede Alex Noren all enjoyed a week’s break from their busy schedules but retain their place in the automatic qualification standings on the World Points list. 

The top four players on both points lists automatically qualify for a place on captain Thomas Bjørn’s 12-man team, with the Dane permitted to choose a further four wildcards. 

Attention turns to the Trophée Hassan II this week with 2016 Ryder Cup rookies Andy Sullivan and Chris Wood, 2010 Ryder Cup winner Edoardo Molinari and 2016 Masters Tournament champion Danny Willett all in the field.
