BEIJING, May 22 (Xinhua) -- A year ago, Lu Yuexia hadn't won a tournament in 12 years. Going into the start of this week's Beijing Challenge as defending champion, the Chinese veteran is looking to build on fond memories and revive her game in hope of repeating as champion.

"Few people are able to defend their title on the Tour, so it's a gigantic task. Let's wait and see," the 36-year-old Guangdong native said Wednesday on the eve of the start of the 500,000-yuan tournament, the fourth leg of the China LPGA Tour season.

Last year Lu won in spectacular fashion at the Orient (Beijing) Pearl Golf Country Club, beating Japan's Miho Mori in a first-hole playoff.

Two weeks ago after missing the cut at the Srixon XXIO in Wuxi, Lu served as caddie for Shang Linyan in the final round, helping her good friend to an equal runner-up finish behind super amateur Liu Yu who won her second China LPGA Tour tournament.
