Rookie Alex Noren believes he can take confidence from having won already on the Ryder Cup course this summer.

The Swede lifted the French Open title at Le Golf National in July, his European team-mate Jon Rahm finishing two shots behind, having come from seven shots back in the final round.

He hopes that victory will help him this week as he tries not to think about the expectations on the host nation.

“It gave me a lot of confidence, but it is a totally different thing playing in a team opposed to as an individual,” said the 36-year-old.

“It is hard to know how big it’s going to be, but I try to take away all the expectations from outside.

“It’s great that everyone here wants Europe to win, but it is easier to go within the team and within yourself and take it as a golf tournament.”
