Dustin Johnson is world number one, Brooks Koepka just won his third Major title, and then you have stars like Justin Thomas, Masters champion Patrick Reed, Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler. Tiger Woods is also back on form again but it would appear that he would have to rely on a captains pick.

But Europe have quality across the board too and the US would be unwise to underestimate them given that it is also on home-turf.
