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.
Alex Noren – The 36-year-old Swede is one of the stalwarts of the European Tour but a first-timer in the Ryder Cup after an impressive season which has included victory in the French Open at tournament venue Le Golf National outside Paris.
Thorbjorn Olesen – The Dane clinched the eighth and last automatic spot with a strong finish to the qualifying period which ended Sunday. The 28-year-old, who won the Italian Open in June, is the fifth rookie on countryman Bjorn's side.
Paul Casey – England's Casey make his return to the Ryder Cup after a 10-year hiatus after recommitting to playing sufficient European Tour events to be eligible for a spot on the team. The 41-year-old, a former world No.3, has played on three previous Ryder Cup teams, winning in 2004 and 2006 when he made a hole in one during one of his matches.
Henrik Stenson – The ice-cool Swede earned one of Bjorn's four wildcard picks by virtue of his big-match experience and the level-headed qualities he brings to the team room. Stenson, who beat Phil Mickelson in a classic duel to win the 2016 British Open, has played on four previous European teams.
