U.S. Ryder Cup candidates are running out of time to state their cases.

The top nine Ryder Cup point earners (under the Ryder Cup points system) from the 2013 Masters through the 2014 PGA Championship punch their tickets to compete for country at Gleneagles at the end of September. Captain Tom Watson will announce his three picks in early September.

With only three weeks until Ryder Cup rosters are finalized, we can safely assume that the top six players have secured their spots.

So, we'll turn our attention toward the spots that are still up for grabs and the captain's picks.
