BEIJING, Oct. 11 (Xinhua) -- Fangshan-Changyang Chinese Amateur Golf Champions Tournament will tee off on Wednesday in California Country Golf Club in Fangshan on the outskirts of urban Beijing.

The inaugural event attracts 85 golfers from six countries and regions, including 32 winners of various Chinese amateur events.

Among the Chinese participants are five national team members, including Zhang Weiwei and Wang Xinying, and six youth team members, including Chen Zihao, Dou Zecheng and Wu Haochuan.

Zhang Weiwei, who has made impressive progress since joining the Chinese team, is a star to watch in the three-day tournament, while Chen Zihao is also a force to reckon with as he has swept junior titles in the Asian Cup China Open, the 17th Chinese National Youth Championships and HSBC Junior Golf in Jiangxi in 2011.

Zhang Huilin, the men's champion in the 2011 Hope finals, and Guang Tianlang and Yang Jiaxin, who triumphed in the men's and women's amateur tour finals in 2011, have also set their sights on the top prize.

Chinese Taipei sends nine players to the event and Bahrain fields its 2010 Asian Games squad to Beijing, while Ozaki Shuhei spearheads a four-player Japanese team.

Jay Hyeong Jeong leads a three-member South Korean squad and the Philippines is represented by Zanie Boy Gialon and Angelo Jose Gandionco.
