The European team is selected on the basis of the European Tour money list and the World Ranking. From the 2018 edition, the first four players with the most points earned in the European tour (Race to Dubai) and four other players based on the points earned in the World Ranking (without, however, counting the foreign tournaments held during the Rolex Series) enter by right.
The European captain, like his American colleague, also has four wild cards, with which he can summon players regardless of the rankings. The selection procedure for the United States has been renewed starting from the 2008 edition.
For the USA, qualifiers begin with the four major tournaments of the previous year and end in August of the year in which the Ryder Cup is held. The top eight players are automatically qualified, while the remaining four places are assigned by the captain to its discretion.
