HOYLAKE, England (Doug Ferguson/AP) — The end of the British Open means the Ryder Cup is getting closer, and there are a couple of regulars still not in the team.

That starts with Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods.

They both have two tournaments remaining before qualifying ends at the PGA Championship. The top nine earn automatic spots on the U.S. team that goes to Scotland at the end of September to try to win back the cup.

Tom Watson has three captain's picks.

HOYLAKE, England (Doug Ferguson/AP) — Even after his worst 72-hole finish in a major, Tiger Woods says he would pick himself for the Ryder Cup team.

His first major of the year, and second tournament since March 31 back surgery, wasn't much of an audition for U.S. captain Tom Watson. Woods was never the same after opening the British Open with a 69. The mistakes kept piling up, and so did the big numbers, and he closed with a 3-over 75 on Sunday at Royal Liverpool.

"I just made too many mistakes," Woods said.
