Team USA's 2012 Ryder Cup roster is stacked with the best golfers that America has to offer

Team USA will be looking to avenge its loss to Team Europe in the 2010 Ryder Cup this weekend at Medinah Country Club in Medinah, Ill., and in doing so will be featuring many of the top golfers in the world. The American team features 11 of the top 20 players in the current World Golf Rankings, with Jim Furyk being the only team member to fall outside that range -- and he's currently ranked No. 21.

The team features Bubba Watson and Webb Simpson -- two of the year's major champions -- as well as Brandt Snedeker, who is fresh off winning the FedEx Cup. There is also Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, two of the best golfers in the game's history.

Of the 12 golfers, eight return from the 2010 team, with Snedeker, Simpson, Jason Dufner and Keegan Bradley making their first appearances.

Here is the full roster, led by captain Davis Love III.

  • Keegan Bradley
  • Jason Dufner
  • Jim Furyk
  • Dustin Johnson
  • Zach Johnson
  • Matt Kuchar
  • Phil Mickelson
  • Brandt Snedeker
  • Webb Simpson
  • Steve Stricker

  • Tiger Woods
