Mickelson, Mahan earn Ryder Cup berths

Phil Mickelson and Hunter Mahan have clinched berths on the United States Team for the 38th Ryder Cup, to be held Oct. 1-3 at The Celtic Manor Resort in Wales.

Mickelson has led the U.S. points list throughout 2010 and will make his eighth consecutive Ryder Cup appearance. Mahan locked up a spot on his second U.S. Ryder Cup Team with a victory Sunday at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Based on the point system utilized by The PGA of America, six more U.S. players will qualify for the Team after conclusion of play this week at the 92nd PGA Championship in Kohler, Wis.

The PGA Championship, the season's final major, rewards two Ryder Cup points for every $1,000 earned, and all U.S. players making the cut will earn points.

U.S. Team Captain Corey Pavin will select the remaining four players for the U.S. Team on Sept. 7 in New York City.
