The official Ryder Cup experiences offered by YGT were snapped up by 1,200 customers, who will be staying at 39 different hotels across the Paris area.
Poulter was 17 and folding shirts in a shop called Jack O' Legs Golf Center in England when he drove his rust bucket of a vehicle to The Belfry for his first taste of the Ryder Cup in 1993.
Tommy Fleetwood: Won the French Open in 2017, the only time he has actually made the cut in six attempts.
The final day is devoted to 12 singles matches. No telling how wide his eyes were that day.
"I'm not sure he's coming over".
A quarter-century later, the feeling is only stronger.

In addition, BBC says the main road to the city of Palu has been blocked because of a landslide and a key bridge is out of action. The city's airport has been reopened only for relief efforts and will remain closed until October 4 for commercial flights.
Thomas Bjorn has, like most home Ryder Cup captains, had the opportunity to be properly hands-on about how Le Golf National looks and plays this week, but he's playing that down.
It was unclear if he was still cold or simply couldn't wait to get started. "The first tee is going to be just so much fun".
Since then, he developed the nickname "Postman" because he always delivers. This is not the automaton Woods who won tournaments he was supposed to win with the kind of golf he was supposed to play. If you think you've gotten away so far, you're not going to.
Europe has five major champions, four players among the top 10 in the world.
Mickelson is appearing in his 12th Ryder Cup and, by his own admission, his last on European soil. He says McIlroy took a picture of him in nothing but his underwear, posted it on the team WhatsApp network and said the Spaniard couldn't handle McIlroy outdriving him.

But what can the Postman deliver? At some point, form is all that matters. European captain Thomas Bjorn arrived late last week, as did a few of his players. He considered Poulter, along with Sergio Garcia, and saw value beyond the golf for the connection they have with the fans (Poulter) and in the team room (Garcia). The course is considered a "thinking mans" golf course.
The Englishman has forged a reputation for getting hot under the collar on the golf course. "They are the whole package".
Ryder Cup notes: Spieth says winless season will be a...
"It won't be", he said.
"A lot of these younger guys were on their way in when I was on my way out". It's the European way, and the US can only hope it will end 25 years of losing the Ryder Cup away from home.
Sturridge's Stunning Goal Leaves Rüdiger Lost For Words
That attempt was in Sturridge's mind moments after he came on as a substitute in the Premier League rematch at Stamford Bridge with the Reds a goal down.
Rory McIlroy has come a long way from dismissing the Ryder Cup as "an exhibition event" of little importance to becoming fully established as one of the European team leaders who can not wait to soak up the experience for a fifth time.
