Phil Mickelson’s Ryder Cup Odds

Not many people saw Phil Mickelson’s Major win coming last weekend, and not many would have predicted the 50-year-old would be in contention for another Ryder Cup appearance.

Phil Mickelson produced one of the most memorable golfing moments in history last week, as he fended off all challenges to win the PGA Championship, and become the oldest Major winner in history.

Phil Mickelson is no stranger to winning Majors, his win at the PGA Championship was actually his sixth, with his last coming in 2013.

Win his win at the PGA Championship, Phil Mickelson moved from 52nd to 16th in the latest American Standings, with the top six players after August 29th automatically earning a place in the US Ryder Cup team.

Steve Striker will also have six wildcard selections to make for his 2021 Ryder Cup team.

The goal is clear for Mickelson, he either needs to be in the top six in the rankings or be a captains pick to make the Ryder Cup team.

It will be pretty hard for Steve Stricker to leave out a Major winner from his Ryder Cup team, and might fancy taking someone of Mickelson’s pedigree to Whistling Straits.

One online sportsbook has given odds of +150 that Phil Mickelson makes the 2021 Ryder Cup team, which implies he’s got a 40% chance of making the cut.

The updated USA Ryder Cup rankings are below, and our predictions for the USA Ryder Cup team.
