Both Perez and Fox claimed their first Rolex Series titles during the 2023 Race to Dubai, with Perez dramatically winning the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship and Fox becoming the first New Zealander to win the BMW PGA Championship.

It will be the second time Perez will tee it up at Le Golf National this season after qualifying to represent France in the Olympics in August. There, he will partner DP World Tour and PGA TOUR winner Matthieu Pavon, who has already confirmed his participation in this year’s FedEx Open de France.

“I always enjoy having the opportunity to play on home soil, so to get the chance to do it twice this year is extra special,” said Perez. “The fans are really supportive of the French players during the Open de France, and there is always a great atmosphere during the week.

“Le Golf National is a great challenge and a test that we all look forward to taking on.”

Like Perez, Fox will also be playing in his fifth Open de France, with his best result coming in 2017 when he finished sixth. The pair have been among the DP World Tour’s most consistent performers in recent years and earned dual membership on the PGA TOUR for 2024 after finishing inside the top ten on last year’s Race to Dubai Rankings.

Perez and Fox also went head-to-head for the title at the 2022 Dutch Open, with the Frenchman claiming victory after a four-hole play-off.

Willett, who won the 2016 Masters Tournament, is the second Major Champion confirmed to tee it up in this year’s event, joining compatriot Justin Rose, winner of the 2013 U.S. Open.

It will be Willett’s tenth visit to Le Golf National, as he continues his return from shoulder surgery, with his highest finish of fifth coming in 2010. The Englishman is a two-time Rolex Series winner, with victories at the 2018 DP World Tour Championship and 2019 BMW PGA Championship.

This year marks the 106th edition of the FedEx Open de France, celebrated as the oldest national open on Continental Europe. Past champions include legends of the game such as Seve Ballesteros, Colin Montgomerie, Bernhard Langer, Sir Nick Faldo, José María Olazábal, Byron Nelson and Walter Hagen.

The tournament occupies a prime position on the DP World Tour’s ‘Back 9’, which encompasses nine of the Tour’s most historic tournaments and national opens, giving members their final opportunities to secure playing rights for 2025 and also advance to the season ending ‘DP World Tour Play-Offs’.
