“No decision has been made on that,” Johnson said ahead of the Zurich Classic in pairs. “There is still a long time in that regard, and there are many factors to take into account so if I have made decisions personally, I tell you not yet,” added the Masters and British Open champion.

Among the American players competing in the LIV Golf are six winners, all of them majors: Dustin Johnson (2), Brooks Koepka (4), Bryson DeChambeau (1), Patrick Reed (1), Bubba Watson (2) and Phil Mickelson (6). The Ryder Cup will be held from September 25 to October 1 at the Marco Simone Golf & Country Club in Rome.

The US team will consist of six players who qualify through a points system and six players chosen by the team captain. The American players currently occupying the top six spots in the points standings are, in this order, Scottie Scheffler, Max Homa, Cameron Young, Jordan Spieth, Sam Burns and Patrick Cantlay.

As for the selection of the rest of the US team, Johnson said: “I’m going to put a lot of trust in the guys that really make the team, because it’s their team. So I don’t know who those six are going to be, obviously, but their participation and their opinions will weigh heavily on what I, what we, decide to do.” Johnson thus left open the possibility that Super League players are part of the American team that will defend the Cup in Rome.

“Those individuals who have left the PGA Tour, to the best of my knowledge, are still members of the PGA of America,” Johnson concluded.
