The 25-year-old finished tied eighth at the French Open on Sunday after a level-par final round of 71, failing to mount a serious title challenge despite a solid week at the venue just outside Paris.

``It's all right in front of you. There aren't any tricks,`` said Thomas, who was the only leading American player to make the trip to France.

``It sounds like for the most part they knew it was a narrow course and it was tough, and I'll just reiterate that to them.

``It's not like there's any ground-breaking stuff that I learned here. I definitely learned some stuff.

``There's not any blind shots or anything like that. You just have to go out and execute.``

The reigning USPGA champion was looking for a second win of the year and first-ever in Europe, but struggled over the closing holes as his title bid petered out.

``I played really well this week. I just didn't quite have it today,`` he added.

``I mean, through 10 holes, I really wasn't playing well and I was two-under, and I was in with a great chance to have a chance these last couple holes.

``It was pretty frustrating, but you know, it was a good trip after my third week (playing) in a row. I thought I held up pretty well.``

The Ryder Cup gets underway on September 28, when a star-studded United States outfit will be bidding to win on European soil for the first time since 1993.
