Mickelson in, Dufner out for U.S. Ryder Cup team

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Phil Mickelson picked up a small consolation Sunday after his runner-up finish in the PGA Championship. He extended his American record by qualifying for his 10th consecutive Ryder Cup team.

The PGA Championship was the final qualifying event for nine Americans to make the team that will face Europe late next month in Scotland.

Mickelson was on the outside going into the week, not wanting for Tom Watson to spend one of his three captain’s pick on him. He moved up to No. 5.

Masters champion Bubba Watson led the final points list. He was followed by Jim Furyk, Rickie Fowler, Jimmy Walker, Mickelson, Matt Kuchar, Jordan Spieth, Patrick Reed and Zach Johnson.

Jason Dufner fell out of the top nine. He withdrew from the PGA on Thursday because of a neck injury and finished 8.974 points behind Johnson.
