Ian Poulter – Europe's talisman will make his sixth Ryder Cup appearance and first as a player since 2014 after acting as a vice-captain two years ago. The Englishman has an impressive Ryder Cup record and was the driving force behind Europe's remarkable comeback in the "Miracle at Medinah" in 2012.
Sergio Garcia – The Spanish veteran has endured a tough season but earned a wildcard pick from captain Thomas Bjorn for his role as the "heartbeat" of the European Ryder Cup team. Garcia will make his ninth appearance for Europe in Paris.
Francesco Molinari – The Italian sealed his place at the top of the qualification rankings with his maiden major victory in the British Open at Carnoustie in July. The consistent Molinari played in the 2010 and 2012 Ryder Cups.
Justin Rose – England's former US Open champion and Olympic gold medalist will be making his fifth appearance in the matchplay event and boasts an impressive record of 11 wins and two halves in his 19 matches.
Tyrrell Hatton – The Englishman will make his Ryder Cup debut in Paris after an impressive qualification period which yielded two wins last autumn and tied sixth in June's US Open. The 26-year-old was in contention to win the PGA Tour's second FedEx Cup playoff event Sunday before sliding to 12th.
Tommy Fleetwood – The fast-rising Fleetwood has been one of golf's big noises this season, with a runner-up finish at the US Open and five other top-five finishes in the PGA Tour. The 27-year-old is another European debutant but his form suggests he will be a big danger.
Jon Rahm – The US-based Spaniard has risen to world No. 5 and is part of golf's new power generation. The 23-year-old, a former top-ranked amateur, is one of five European rookies in Paris.
Rory McIlroy – Northern Ireland's four-time major champion is one of Europe's powerhouses and can be devastating in the right mood. McIlroy is playing on his fifth straight Ryder Cup team and has won nine of his 19 matches with four halves.
