Justin Rose is all set for a fifth Ryder Cup appearance, but he may need to store some energy to thrive.

The Englishman might be a tricky player to figure out this week because it's hard to think that his FedEx Cup exploits have not left physically and emotionally spent. Has he got anything left in the can? And how does the brief appearance at World No. 1 figure in that equation? What we know is that other than fatigue he is in fine form. We also know he owns an 11-6-2 RC record. Within that he is 5-2-1 in foursomes, 4-3-0 in fourballs and 2-1-1 in singles. He has formed powerful alliances in the past with his good friends Ian Poulter and Henrik Stenson. Captain Bjorn spoke of his fears for Rose's exhaustion so you suspect he is closely monitoring it. There's a good chance he will not be asked to play five matches unless, rather than tired, he is riding a really big wave.

Thorbjorn Olesen claimed his spot by right and will now make his debut in the 2018 Ryder Cup this week in Paris.

Much like his fellow Ryder Cup debutant Tommy Fleetwood the Dane has an absolute curio of a Le Golf National record. Like the little girl in the nursery rhyme, when he's good he is very, very good (T2 on debut in 2011, T3 in 2017), but when he's bad he is awful (his opening rounds from 2012 to 2017 were 76, 78, 77 and 80; he missed the cut every time, but 2016, when he withdrew, and did so again in 2018). His qualification was impressive. He got into the automatic spots, knew the pressure was on to stay there (and it was added in his case because he is good friends with the captain) and now can reap the benefits. You would imagine his involvement is initially penned in as limited, but if he fires he could be an important cog in the European engine.

Paul Casey breaks his self-imposed Ryder Cup embargo to play at Le Golf National in Paris this week.

The Englishman reacted badly to being left out of the 2010 side by Colin Montgomerie and more or less remained in a seven year sulk, although he insists it was as much to do with concentrating on cracking the PGA Tour. He was feted by both Keith Pelley and Thomas Bjorn however, providing echoes of when Tony Jacklin had to tempt Seve back to the team in 1983, but there the comparisons end. He's 1-1 in foursomes, 1-1-1 in singles and unbeaten in fourballs, albeit 1-0-3. He has the reputation as something of a match play specialist, a feeling borne of his victory in the 2006 HSBC World Match Play and two seconds in the WGC version. Unquestionably excited to be back, bantering at the wildcard selection announcement. Bjorn's flirting might bear fruit because for all the social awkwardness, like his bete noire Monty, Casey just wants to be liked.

Henrik Stenson is all set for a fifth Ryder Cup appearance at Le Golf National in France this week.

His reputation probably exceeds what he has actually achieved in the Ryder Cup because he has been relentlessly 50% with a record of 7-7-2. In the singles he is 2-2-0 and in the two pairs formats he is only one match away from 50% again: 2-3-1 in foursomes and 3-2-1 in fourballs. It's kind of just as well that he played three, won three with Justin Rose at Gleneagles in 2014. Without that run his record would be even more shaky. His first four visits to Le Golf National were bleak: he was 2-for-4 between 1996 and 2005 with a best of T55 and not one sub-70 round. But in 2006 he was T5 heading into the final round, a big improvement even if a last round 76 saw him slump to T29. Then in 2012 he recorded T7.

Rory McIlroy will be hoping to play a key role in Europe's fight to regain the Ryder Cup in Paris, France this week.

The Northern Irishman has played well in the Ryder Cup but is maybe yet to quite ignite, boasting a 9-6-4 record and sneaking just about ahead of 50-50 in all three formats: 4-3-1 in foursomes, 3-2-2 in fourballs, 2-1-1 in singles. He has twice played all five matches, something it is tempting to do with star players, but which can have diseconomies of scale (see Dave Tindall's feature on the subject). He will need to find a new partner in crime this time around since his played three, won three combo with Thomas Pieters cannot be revived. Said to be a far more vocal presence in Ryder Cup week than many might imagine and he certainly seems disabused of his pre-2010 notion that the match is an exhibition.

Tommy Fleetwood will make his Ryder Cup debut in Paris, France this week.

The Englishman boasts unquestionably one of the oddest course records on the European Tour at the Von Hagge/Chesneau creation. In 2010, 2012, 2013, 2016 and this year he averaged 74.00 blows per round, never once broke 70 and never once made a cut. What about 2017, the odd one out? He smashed 67-68-71-66, was never outside the top five and won. He's 6-5 in the WGC World Match Play and has a 1-1 record with Paul Casey in the Seve Trophy and Eurasia Cup, whilst he also partnered Henrik Stenson to a win in the latter earlier this year. A rising star in the sport and this is another big step for him.

Webb Simpson sets his eyes on Le Golf National as he prepares for this week's Ryder Cup in Paris, France.

Simpson arrives on the heels of the second-best season of his career, in terms of earnings ($5,376,417). That includes a win at TPC Sawgrass which could prove relevant this week at Le Golf National, another course that favors precision and makes you avoids loads of water hazards. Making his third appearance at the Ryder Cup (2012, 2014), Simpson enters with a 2-3-1 overall record but he's had the cards stacked against him in terms of opponents faced. Finishing the season 6th in strokes gained putting, Simpson could really surprise this week and be a big part of Team USA's game plan.

Brooks Koepka made a strong debut at the 2016 Ryder Cup and now he'll look to improve upon that record as he heads to Paris, Frances, for this week's edition of the biennial competition.

The big hitter was a rookie at Hazeltine but he managed to earn 3 points for the Americans (3-1-0). His length off the tee is never going to hurt but it's his short game that really shines in this format. He's run a bit cold with the flat stick this summer but long-term he's gaining more than a stroke per event with the putter which is in the upper tier of putters on TOUR. Adding to his appeal for gamers and American fans, Koepka has four career wins and three of them have come in majors. These big events bring out the best in Koepka and we should expect to see another strong performance at Le Golf National this week.
