PATRICK REED IS ALL IN. After his win at The Barclays on Sunday, Reed is an automatic qualifier for the U.S. Ryder Cup team and is off and running in the FedEx Cup Playoffs. Patrick moved from a nervous eighth to a comfortable fourth in the final Ryder Cup Points Standings.

In case you haven't noticed or heard him, Reed relishes playing for the US of A. He was 3-0-1 in his first Ryder Cup two years ago at Gleneagles, one of the few bright spots in a losing effort.

Here are the eight American players who have earned their spots.

Golf isn't meant to be easy. It's hard to take being on the top -- or on the bottom. I guess I'm something of a fatalist. You have to have a sense of history, I think, to survive some of these things... Golf is one crisis after another.

The 2016 Olympics are over. The Olympic torch is put away and the Olympic flame is extinguished. But there is another important event approaching in the world of golf -- the Ryder Cup -- and the PGA of America is borrowing an idea from the Olympics and other sports to attract attention and rally fan support.

THE RESULTS OF THE WOMEN'S Olympic Golf competition in Rio de Janeiro was yet another reminder of the dominant players (and nations) on the LPGA Tour.

Gold: Inbee Park, Korea, -16
Silver: Lydia Ko, New Zealand, -11
Bronze: Shanshan Feng, China, -10

"It definitely feels unreal," Inbee Park told Golf Channel's Steve Sands. "This is something I've really been dreaming of doing this week. To represent your country in the Olympic Games and to be able to win a gold medal is such a special feeling. There were so many Korean people out here supporting me and I almost felt like we were in Korea. That's how much support I've had this week… Ive gone through some tough times, but this is definitely a big...

This item comes from ARMCHAIR GOLF reader and friend Howie Karasick.

The 2016 Summer Olympics continue in Rio de Janeiro. As you know, golf is back for the first time in more than 100 years. The women's Olympic golf competition is underway.

The architect of the Olympic golf course, Gil Hanse, has been kind enough to donate a signed copy of his original course design to help raise money for children with autism. All proceeds go to various child autism charities.

The above image is a low-resolution scan of the actual document. The colors are much more luminous than this low-resolution jpeg.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The actual document does NOT have "SAMPLE" on it.
