The tee times are out ahead of the week's play at Le Golf National.

Amundi Open de France

Defending champion Alex Noren starts his Amundi Open de France title defence at 09:05 on Thursday.

The Swede secured his tenth European Tour win at Le Golf National last year and begins his bid for title number 11 alongside home favourite Alexander Levy and two-time Major Champion Martin Kaymer, who won the tournament at this venue in 2009.

Noren, who was part of Europe's Ryder Cup-winning team at this course last year, and his playing partners will begin on the tenth tee.

Alfred Dunhill Links Championship winner Victor Perez starts his quest for a second European Tour win and first on home soil at 13:20. He will be joined on the first tee by D+D Real Czech Masters champion Thomas Pieters and three-time European Tour winner Andy Sullivan.

Thomas Bjørn will make a happy return to the scene of his Ryder Cup win as Europe's Captain last year.

The Ryder Cup winners

The Dane will be joined by 2009 Open Champion Stewart Cink and three-time European Tour winner Edoardo Molinari.

Omega European Masters champion Sebastian Soderberg and Scandinavian Invitation winner Erik van Rooyen will tee off with home hope Romain Langasque from the tenth at 08:55.

There will be more home interest on the first at 13:00 with Victor Dubuisson teeing off with José María Olazábal and Ross Fisher, followed by Benjamin Hebert playing with Joost Luiten and Kurt Kitayama.

Italy's Guido Migliozzi, a two-time winner on the European Tour already this season, starts from the first at 09:35 alongside Sam Brazel and ISPS Handa Vic Open winner David Law, while 2019 European Tour winners Stephen Gallacher and Marcus Kinhult are joined by Hugo Leon at 08:35.
