Ryder Cup: Phil Mickelson is confident to get auto selected, 10th time in a row
American golfer Phil Mickelson said that he is confident he can still qualify automatically for the USA Ryder Cup team.
Mickelson is currently at 10th spot in the points table, with only the top nine earning an automatic place.
Mickelson has made a record nine consecutive appearances for USA, automatically qualifying every time.
The qualifying period ends after the US PGA Championship on Sunday and captain Tom Watson will then choose three wild cards in September.
Mickelson said that he is confident that he will get on the team by himself, and won't require that captain's pick.
He added that he wants to keep that streak going of two decades that he has.
