Collin Morikawa, Viktor Hovland make big Ryder Cup moves after WGC-Workday

Collin Morikawa and Viktor Hovland made big moves in Ryder Cup points after strong performances at the WGC-Workday Championship.

Morikawa jumped four spots to No. 3 in U.S. points after his three-shot victory at The Concession Golf Club while Hovland, who was part of a three-way tie for second, climbed four spots of his own to No. 4 in World Points, which currently has him as Team Europe’s first automatic selection off of that list.

Neither player has played in an international team competition since they each turned pro in Summer 2019.

Morikawa’s rise knocked Tony Finau outside the top 6. Billy Horschel, also T-2 at the WGC-Workday, moved up five spots to No. 17.
