Jordan Spieth tipped to be Top American in 2016 Ryder Cup at Hazeltine

With the Ryder Cup countdown gaining momentum as we get closer to Friday's start of one of the sporting hlights we turn our attentions to the USA team, who will be aiming to break their recent hoodoo over Europe, as they aim to taste victory for the first time in four tournaments, and with Davis Love III's men touted as the ones to beat we delve deeper into their squad and pick out our best bet for the Top USA Points Scorer in what should be a tremendous weekend of epic golf at Hazeltine National Golf Club, Minnesota.

Ryder Cup Top American    
Tips Jordan Spieth    Best Bet @ 5 / 1  
  • Brooks Koepka & Ryan Moore are the only two debutants for USA
  • Phil Mickelson has already made ten Ryder Cup appearances
  • Johnson, Spieth and Reed are key triumvirate in Davis Love III's team

DJ & Spieth Fancied To Shine For USA

Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth have catapulted into the forefront of American golf over the last few years and those two sensations are sure to be the focal point of Davis Love III's American team this weekend, and the two Major champions, who are amongst the top 5 in golf's world rankings, are going to be huge contributors throughout the three days of competition, and it's no surprise to see them heading the betting for top USA player.

However, it's slightly surprising to see Johnson heading the betting at 4/1 with bet365 to be top American, as his Ryder Cup record is not sensational, with him winning four and losing three career matches, and while he has been shining in tournaments of late, with a recent win in the BMW Championship enhanching his reputation, there could be better value elsewhere and Spieth is the man to eclipse his record on the biggest stage of them all.

He impressed as a rookie in the last Ryder Cup, as his four matches saw him win two, draw one and lose one, and now with experience under his belt he will head to Hazeltine as the golden nugget of the USA team, and at 5/1 with Coral is a cracking bet to shine over the weekend.

Spieth has recorded two top-10 finishes in his last four tournaments, but he is a far superior player than he was two years ago, and with Love III likely to unleash him in every round of the Ryder Cup then he could quite easily rack up four points over the weekend, and at 5/1 can perhaps dent Europe's hope of trying to retain the trophy.

Veteran Mickelson To Struggle, As Reed And Moore Could Play Positive Role

Phil Mickelson will take his place on the tee for the eleventh time in Ryder Cups, and the 46-year-old will be hoping that his mediocre record can improve (W16 L19 D7), but 'Lefty' could be sparsely used by captain Love III, who will hope that keeping the multiple Major winner fresh may see him record a couple of vital points, but for this top USA player market he is easy to bypass at 12/1 with Coral.

Patrick Reed launched into the Ryder Cup limelight last time out as he bagged three points from his four games, and he will be aiming to build on his rookie campaign, so certainly is worth a second look at 15/2 with Betfred, while Ryan Moore, who was chosen as Love III's final wildcard pick, has been given a huge positive from colleague Steve Raymond in his Top Debutant Preview, and at 16/1 with BetVictor could be over-priced here.

Of the others, Rickie Fowler (12/1) has never won a Ryder Cup match, drawing and losing four matches, so it's hard to fancy him, while Brooks Koepka (14/1) and Matt Kuchar (12/1) add some great depth to the American team, and it's certainly Kuchar, who could be the each-way value, as he aims to build on his four wins in Ryder Cup history, but if USA are to challenge the focus will certainly fall on Messrs Spieth and Johnson, with the form just shining that little brighter on home soil.
