SHEBOYGAN, Wisconsin (AP) — The disappointment of his playoff loss in the PGA Championship didn't last long for Bubba Watson on Sunday after it earned him a spot at the Ryder Cup.

Dustin Johnson, whose two-stroke penalty on a bizarre bunker ruling on the last hole knocked him out of the playoff, shared fifth place and also secured one of eight automatic spots for the Americans.

Captain Corey Pavin will announce his four wild-card picks on Sept. 7, in New York, and among those under consideration is Tiger Woods. The world's No. 1 player failed to play his way into one of the automatic spots on the team, finishing 12th in the standings.

Watson knocked out Anthony Kim, who missed three months after thumb surgery.
