With his ninth consecutive appearance in the Ryder Cup, Phil Mickelson (left) now holds the record for most Ryder Cup appearances by an American. Jim Furyk is now tied with Billy Casper, Raymond Floyd and Lanny Wadkins, with eight appearances on the US team.

Nick Faldo (Europe) holds the all-time Ryder Cup mark for most appearances, with 11 straight from 1977 to 1997.

At Medinah, Mickelson is likely to surpass Casper for most matches played among Americans. Mickelson has competed in 34 matches; Casper competed in 37.

Faldo holds the record for most all-time matches played, with 46. Mickelson also holds the US mark for most fourball matches played, 15.
