Established stars and young guns raring to do battle at Women's Open

Feng Shanshan will lead home hopes at the $290,000 Macalline Women's China Open, which tees off on Thursday at Orient Xiamen Golf & Country Club in Fujian province.

The former world No 1 feels a close connection to the tournament, having made a name for herself at the 2006 edition as a precocious 17-year-old amateur, when she stunned the field to tie for 11th.

"Years ago, the Women's China Open was once the highest-level event that I had ever played in. The platform allowed me to play with domestic and international professional players. It was a great chance for me as a teenager to learn from the best," said Feng, who now has 10 LPGA titles, including one major, to her name.
