The top seven players in the U.S. Ryder Cup standings -- Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Davis Love III, Jim Furyk, Kenny Perry, David Toms and Chad Campbell -- had things locked up before the PGA. Chris DiMarco and Chris Riley played their way onto the team on Sunday and Fred Funk hung on, too. Monday morning, Hal Sutton will name two captain's picks and ESPN.com is tracking the chances of those ranked 11-21.

Needed a great Sunday round, shot 76. He's on the bubble.
12 Jay Haas T37

Final-round 77 shouldn't keep him off team.
13 Jerry Kelly MC

Could be controversial captain's pick after weak PGA.
14 Stewart Cink T17
(-3)
Sideways
Never got it going in PGA; could be a solid pick.

Conspiracy theorists may say Sutton already told him he's on the team.
16 Scott Verplank T62
(+5)

After opening-round 67, hurt ankle. Hurt his chances even more.
17 Justin Leonard P2

If Sutton goes with hot hand, he's the hottest.

Lyme disease + Whistling Straits = bad news.
19 Todd Hamilton T64

He'll be watching Ryder Cup from home ... while drinking out of the Claret Jug.
20 Jonathan Kaye MC

Too bad, tour bad boy could have brawled with Euros.
21 John Daly MC

Oh well, not much RV parking at Oakland Hills anyway.
