The Mosconi Cup gets underway today in Las Vegas with USA team captain Charlie Williams confident his side can win the tournament on home soil.
Europe head to the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino looking to retain the trophy they won in London last year, but Williams is hoping his squad of players and home support can wrestle it from their grasp.
That defeat in London still hurts Williams and he is determined not to feel that low again, he said: “In all the years I've been a part of the Mosconi Cup, this US team has the most chemistry and more clicky than in the past so this year will be more exciting than ever before.
“No matter how much you prepare for the Mosconi Cup, nothing can compare to being out there.
"The Europeans are very worthy adversaries and we're not going to take it lightly."
