Thomas Bjorn‘s Europe will be looking to reclaim the Ryder Cup trophy after losing at Hazeltine in 2016.
Jim Furyk‘s side have the momentum and will be hoping to replicate what they did under Davis Love III two years ago, where they were victorious by 17 points to 11.
Le Golf National will make for an interesting Ryder Cup contest with water featuring prominently on many of the key holes.
The course can be tough on a good day but any bad weather could really increase the difficulty of scoring.
