VERSAILLES (France), June 29: Spanish veteran Miguel Angel Jimenez defends his French Open title this week at Le National course outside Versailles, which was recently named as host of the 2018 Ryder Cup.

A year ago, Jimenez triumphed in a three-man play-off with compatriot Alejandro Canizares and Francesco Molinari of Italy, helping seal his place in the European Ryder Cup team for later in the year.

Winless so far this year, 47-year-old Jimenez failed to make the cut at the US Open earlier this month, but is hopeful his return to Paris can re-ignite his season. “The tournament has a great history and I feel very privileged to have my name on the trophy and I would like to see it there another time.
