Poulter hopes for French joy
Ian Poulter hopes a return to next year's Ryder Cup venue can spark a rise up the world rankings which could lead to playing seven tournaments in succession this summer.
Poulter has never missed the cut in 11 appearances in the HNA Open de France at Le Golf National, which will host the biennial contest between Europe and the United States - in which Poulter has often been a key figure - in September 2018.
The 41-year-old said: "This week is a week where I've performed very well in the past. I've had some great finishes in France and hopefully we can have another one this week."
