Martin Kaymer's victory at the Players Championship moved him into position to make the European Ryder Cup team.

Kaymer, who made the clinching putt to give Team Europe the victory in 2012 at Medinah, is ninth on the European team's World Points list. The top four players on the European Points list (Victor Dubuisson, Jamie Donaldson, Thomas Bjorn and Henrik Stenson) and the top five players in World Points not already eligible (Sergio Garcia, Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose, Luke Donald and Kaymer) qualify for the European squad.

Kaymer bumped another key player from the 2012 European team, Ian Poulter, out of the projected roster. Poulter is 10th in World Points and fifth in European Points.

On the U.S. side, the top nine remained the same, but there was some movement among them.

Jordan Spieth went from fifth to fourth while Jim Furyk rose from seventh to fifth. Dustin Johnson dropped two spots to sixth and Patrick Reed fell a spot to seventh.

Bubba Watson, Jimmy Walker and Matt Kuchar hold the top three spots while Phil Mickelson and Zach Johnson are Nos. 8 and 9, respectively.

Tiger Woods is 57th in U.S. points, sandwiched between Andrew Svoboda and Justin Hicks.
