VIRGINIA WATER, England – Europe has changed its criteria for making the Ryder Cup team, giving Colin Montgomerie three captain’s picks and taking only four players from a points list based on world rankings.

Europe has had only two captain’s picks since 1995.

Previously, five players from a world points list and five players from what amounted to a European Tour money list automatically earned a spot on the team. For 2010, only four players will make the team off the world points list.

The United States revamped its system for the 2008 matches, allowing four captain’s picks. The Americans ended its longest losing streak by winning at Valhalla.

The 2010 matches will be played Oct. 1-3 in Wales.
