Stricker made the announcement at Whistling Straits Golf Club in Haven, Wisconsin. The 43rd Ryder Cup begins at the site Sept. 24.
Finau, Schauffele, Spieth and English were the next four players in the points race.
The U.S. team will have six Ryder Cup rookies: Schauffele, English, Berger, Scheffler, Cantlay and Morikawa.
Stricker and the PGA of America changed the process when the Ryder Cup was postponed last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, opting to have just six automatic qualifiers and six picks.
The European Team, captained by Ireland’s Padraig Harrington, will have nine automatic qualifiers at the conclusion of this week’s BMW PGA Championship outside of London. Harrington will make his three at-large selections following the final round.
