Will Chez Reavie Qualify for the Ryder Cup?
It has been a decade since Chez Reavie began seeking his first win in PGA Tour. He is, however, inching closer to the Ryder Cup berth. One week after losing in the playoffs at the Waste Management Phoenix Open to Gary Woodland, Chez Reavie tied for second place at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, just three strokes behind Ted Potter Jr. These two finishes have seen Reavie move up to the ninth position in the latest United States Ryder Cup standings. The playoff against Woodland was Reavie’s best performance since 2011.
The top eight will automatically qualify for Paris after the PGA Championship. The current standings are as follows:
- Dustin Johnson
- Brooks Koepka
- Justin Thomas
- Jordan Spieth
- Matt Kuchar
- Brian Harman
- Gary Woodland
- Rickie Fowler
- Chez Reavie
- Patrick Reed
- Patton Kizzire
- Phil Mickelson
Chez Reavie is one of the greatest golfers at this time. His comeback has been anticipated for almost ten years. He currently ranks at number 46 on the Official World Golf Ranking.
