Brooks Koepka jumps to No. 1 in Ryder Cup USA rankings after second U.S. Open win

Brooks Koepka became just the second player in the last 66 years to win back-to-back U.S. Opens on Sunday. The 28 year old jumped from No. 5 to No. 1 in the Ryder Cup USA rankings for his efforts.

Koepka survived an extremely tough course to win the major for the second straight year. He edged fellow Americans Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed and Tony Finau.

Before Koepka, Curtis Strange was the last player to win consecutive U.S. Opens – he did it in 1988 and 1989.

Johnson was looking great after the first two rounds of the U.S. Open, shooting below 70 on Thursday and Friday. But a Saturday 77 likely cost him his second U.S. Open title. Regardless, DJ finished third overall and jumped from No. 3 to No. 2 in the Ryder Cup USA rankings. He won the FedEx St. Jude Classic the weekend before.

A few other notable developments: Finau, Xander Schauffele and Daniel Berger all helped themselves this weekend. Finau and Schauffele jumped to 13th and 14th, respectively, while Berger (47th to 30th) made the biggest move of any American player.

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.

Major movers in Ryder Cup standings

As Brooks Koepka became the first man to win back to back US Open Championships since Curtis Strange in 1988 and 1989, the end of the second Major of the year also saw big moves in the Ryder Cup Rankings. 

Tommy Fleetwood, Tyrrell Hatton and Justin Rose all leapfrogged Francesco Molinari on the European Points list, after the trio all finished inside the top 10 at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club. 

It was Fleetwood who won the plaudits for the Europeans, as he tied the lowest ever US Open Championship round when he shot a scintillating 63 and posted the clubhouse lead. Come the end of the day, there would only be the winner Koepka above him on the leaderboard. 

The top ten finishes for Hatton and Rose also firmed up their chances of being automatic picks for Thomas Bjørn’s European side at Le Golf National. 

Matthew Fitzpatrick was the big mover on the World Points list, as his T12 finish saw him displace Spain’s Rafa Cabrera-Bello in the final qualification spot. The Englishman joins Rory McIlroy, Alex Noren and Jon Rahm in the automatic places.

Ian Poulter, Thorbjørn Olesen, Ross Fisher and Rafa Cabrera-Bello are all on the bubble heading into the final Ryder Cup qualification stretch.

The European Tour heads to Germany this week for the BMW International Open, where several European hopefuls will feature including previous Ryder Cup stars Sergio Garcia, Martin Kaymer and Thomas Pieters, who currently sit outside the automatic qualification places.
