Golf Disneyland, located east of the French capital on the grounds of Disneyland® Paris, will host the tournament, which is a celebration of the development work undertaken at grassroots level on both sides of the Atlantic.
The venue, which has already proven its pedigree by hosting European Challenge Tour events in 1993 and 2011, is situated 60 kilometres from Le Golf National, the host venue of The 2018 Ryder Cup.
“Our team are ready to fight and I will not have to push them too much as they are all raring to go.”
“The team feels stronger than new rope,” said Wronowski. “We are fired up and ready. The team have been hitting some great shots in the practice round and I have seen so much already not just in their play but in their chemistry too.
“It’s a unique experience to be able to work with these young men and women who are so talented and are already used to high level competition – we had Rachel Heck make the cut in the Evian Championship and come tied 44th.
“We only have one repeat Junior Ryder Cup player. For many of them it’s their first time across the pond, and to come to a magical place like Disney is very special – they have done a great job here.”
The Junior Ryder Cup has been the platform from which many successful careers have been launched, most notably: Sergio Garcia, Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Hunter Mahan, Nicolas Colsaerts, Rafa Cabrera Bello, Tony Finau, Lexi Thompson and Suzann Pettersen.
A total of five former Junior Ryder Cup players will compete in The Ryder Cup this year: McIlroy and Garcia for Europe, against with Spieth, Thomas and Finau from the United States.
