Ryder Cup: The FULL Player Profiles for Team USA at Whistling Straits

The American team are often the strong favourites to win the Ryder Cup on home soil, but this year, they could arguably be as strong as ever.

US captain Steve Stricker has chosen a team with a mixture of personalities, experience and freshness, but above all, his players dominate the world of golf in terms of wins and major championships.

Nine members of the American team occupy places in the top 11 of the world rankings and six of them have lifted major titles in their careers.

They may have five rookies on their side, but one of them is a two-time major champion, one of them is an Olympic gold medallist and one of them is the FedEx Cup champion.

The US side has the consistency and class of Collin Morikawa and Justin Thomas and the power and passion of Bryson DeChambeau and Dustin Johnson.
