South Korea's Inbee Park will seek to regain her dominant form with a strong showing at the inaugural Reignwood LPGA Classic in Beijing.
Park, the world No. 1, is being joined by third-ranked American Stacy Lewis at the tournament, which begins Thursday.
Park swept the first three major championships of the season, and has added three other U.S. LPGA Tour wins this year.
However, she finished well out of contention at the British Open and last month's Evian Championship, failing in her attempt to become the first golfer — male or female — to win four majors in a year.
Lewis will also be looking for a strong tournament after giving up her No. 2 ranking to Norway's Suzann Pettersen at the rain-shortened Evian Championship in France on Sept. 15.
