    Chris Barnes (Double Oak, Texas), Mike Fagan (Dallas), Tommy Jones (Simpsonville, South Carolina), Marshall Kent (Yakima, Washington), Bill O'Neill (Langhorne, Pennsylvania) and Sean Rash (Montgomery, Illinois) have been selected by the Team USA coaching staff to compete in the event.

On-site coverage will commence Thursday, Dec. 4 with the Opening Ceremonies all the way through to the Masters finals on Sunday, Dec. 14.

    "The level of talent on Team USA is incredible and narrowing it down to just six guys is always a challenge," Team USA head coach Rod Ross said. "Our goal is always to bring home as many gold medals as possible, and we are sending a very talented team to accomplish that goal."

    Players from an estimated 52 countries will compete for medals in six events - singles, doubles, trios, team, all-events and Masters match play. The United States topped the medal table at the 2013 World Championships in Henderson, Nevada, earning three gold medals, two silvers and three bronze.
