Campbell On Cup Points

Not the FedEx Cup silly, the Cup that matters...

The Houston Chronicle's Steve Campbell writes:

The Ryder Cup standings are as crude as they are contrived, with players scoring only if they finish in the top 10. In the Ryder Cup race, the guy who finishes 11th gets treated the same as the guy who misses the cut.

And makes this point:

The world rankings, imperfect as they may be, are a much better gauge of a player's overall performance. By that measure, the first six players on the team would be the same. Lehman would have Love, Kenny Perry (No. 32), Verplank and Couples in the 7-10 slots.
