With the return of the Bridgestone Invitational comes the inevitable discussion of the Ryder Cup as well. With just two months left to play before the team play event, Zach Johnson and Jason Dufner currently sit on the bubble for automatic bids with Patrick Reed and Phil Mickelson sitting just outside the top nine places. Of course, that means that Tiger Woods and several other notables are outside the rankings and would require a Captain's Pick to make the team. Woods, as stated by Captain Tom Watson, would be a shoe-in if he's playing well enough. While he made the cut at The Open, Tiger was never really in contention throughout the weekend. As for last week's action, Jim Fuyrk added even more points to his position, moving to second place in the Ryder Cup race with his second place finish at the RBC Canadian.#452806454 / gettyimages.comThrough mysticism, wisdom, arbitrary numbers pulled from thin air, and some serious number crunching, I assign each player a number, called The Aggregate, each week. That number, out of 100 with lower being better, is a collection of rankings and statistics that generally tell how a player has performed in the recent past and, for fantasy teams, can indicate whether is player is getting hot or cooling off. As I update my Excel Spre- *ahem*- Ancient Book of Knowledge with each week's performances, a differential is generated based on where they were, and where they may be going. One thing you'll notice, based on how the system works, is that the week's winner may not be the top mover. For my power rankings, I take this aggregate and combine it with past performance at that tournament to find my list.Included below are my top 10 players overall, as well. Some of these players may appear here but not my Power Rankings, depending on how their tournament history affects their positioning and whether they're playing this week. This Top 10 should provide clearer insight as to how a player has been performing over the recent past. Top 10 MoversTim Clark - (+19.8) to 45Gonzalo Fdez-Castano - (+19.2) to 58.8Matt Kuchar - (+19.2) to 23.2Dicky Pride - (+18.6) to 66.8Nick Watney - (+17.6) to 50.6Joe Durant - (+17.6) to 44.2Troy Matteson - (+17.6) to 71.4Kyle Stanley - (+17.6) to 62Robert Allenby - (+16) to 69.2Andres Romero - (+16) to 43Top 10 LosersLuke Donald - (-19.4) to 65.8Camilo Villegas - (-17.8) to 67.6Ted Potter, Jr. - (-17.4) to 85.2Bo Van Pelt - (-16.2) to 60.2Martin Flores - (-16.2) to 89Hunter Mahan - (-14.4) to 71.2Chad Campbell - (-14) to 53.2Heath Slocum - (-13.6) to 59.6Jhonattan Vegas - (-13.6) to 66.8Cameron Beckman - (-12.8) to 95.2Top 10 OverallGraeme McDowell - 10.6Adam Scott - 11.4Henrik Stenson - 11.4Brendon Todd - 14.6Steve Stricker - 17.2Jim Furyk - 17.6Sergio Garcia - 17.8Robert Karlsson - 18Jordan Spieth - 18Ryan Moore - 18.2Kyle DonovanTweet @RiskRewardGolfInstagram @RiskRewardGolf
