Five Americans are across the pond this weekend to compete in the 2016 British Open Masters Championships, June 1-6, at Colets Health & Fitness Club in Thames Ditton, England.

Three members of the Team USA contingent are the top seeds in their respective division, including 2015 defending women’s 45+ champion Hope Prockop, defending men’s 75+ champion Michael Gough and Ed Burlingame in the men’s 80+.

Prockop, who won a domestic double at national singles for the second year in a row, also enters the 40+ divison as a 3/4 seed. Gough and Burlingame will also look to add 2016 British Masters titles to their 2016 U.S. national titles.

U.S. men’s 45+ finalist John Musto enters the British 45+ division as the 3/4 seed. Norbert Kornyei returns to England for a second year and enters the tournament as a 3/4 seed in the men’s 70+ division.
