HAIKOU, China, Oct. 22 (Xinhua) -- Major champion Rich Beem headed a tightly-packed leaderboard after day one of the Mission Hills World Celebrity Pro-Am here on Saturday following a four-under 68 for 40 stableford points.

Going into the final round of the 36-hole 1-million-US-dollar golf event on the tropical island of Hainan, the American - who held off Tiger Woods to win the 2002 PGA Championship - leads by one from another Major winner, Sweden's Anna Nordqvist and local favorite Li Haotong of China.

With stars from the world of entertainment and sport also in action at the Mission Hills resort in the city of Haikou, former England and Liverpool footballer Robbie Fowler is two points behind Chinese actor Man Wenjun who leads the amateur competition on 38 points.

After closing with a birdie on the final hole of the par-72 Blackstone Course, 46-year-old Beem, now a golf analyst for Sky Sports television, said: "It would be nice to have a chance to win. I can't think of a nicer place to win than here at Mission Hills. It's an extraordinary place."

Asked about the 36-hole stableford format and some alternative sporting challenges during the round - including tennis, football and basketball - Beem added: "This is what golf should be - it doesn't always have to be so serious. To come out for 36 holes and bring in sports stars and entertainment stars really adds something different to golf. I love it. Maybe we need some speakers around the golf course and crank up the music!"

The 21-year-old Li, winner of the European Tour's Volvo China Open earlier this year, was upbeat about his chances going into the final round after shooting seven birdies in a three-under 69 for 39 points: "My long game was really solid today and I had a really good finish with three birdies in a row. Now I have a good chance to win tomorrow."

Talking about his celebrity playing partners, Li added: "My group was pretty fun today, especially [former Manchester United footballer] Dwight Yorke. He's a cool guy and we talked a lot about other sports."

Sweden's Anna Nordqvist also sits one behind Beem on 39 points after matching Li's 69. "I played great today and had a ton of birdie opportunities. I'm excited about tomorrow. It's great to be here, it's my first time and I love the course," said the 2009 Women's PGA champion.

Referring to a schedule that combines golf with glamour, 29-year-old Norqvist added: "It's been great so far and a really good experience. Walking the red carpet with Rich Beem and his wife and John Daly and his wife was amazing. This week has been more about showcasing golf in China, that's our main goal."

A total of nine professional golfers are competing over two rounds of individual stableford for the 1 million dollars Mission Hills World Celebrity Pro-Am - with 250,000 dollars going to the winner. Now in its fourth edition, this year's impressive line-up of golfing greats also includes Gary Player, John Daly, Mark O'Meara, Paula Creamer and Suzann Pettersen - all Major winners - plus LPGA star and 2007 Evian Masters champion, Natalie Gulbis.

Hollywood legends Michael Douglas and Jeremy Renner are just two of the stars playing alongside the elite golfers in a separate bid for the pro-celebrity team title.

Icons from the world of sport include three-time Wimbledon champion Boris Becker and basketball Hall of Famers Allen Iverson and Yao Ming. They are joined by a host of footballing icons, including Manchester United stars Paul Scholes, Dwight Yorke, Lee Sharpe and David May and Liverpool greats Fowler, Luis Garcia and Gary McAllister.

The biennial Mission Hills World Celebrity Pro-Am was established in 2010 as Asia's first and only pro-celebrity golf tournament.

BEIJING DeMarcus Cousins USA Jersey , Nov. 7 (Xinhua) -- Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era offers new insights into the improvement of the global governance system, international politicians and analysts said in reading signals from the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC).

China, under the leadership of the CPC DeMar DeRozan USA Jersey , endorses the common values of the whole mankind, including peace, equity DeAndre Jordan USA Jersey , justice, democracy and freedom, and advocates a world truly shared by all where international affairs are jointly managed David Robinson USA Jersey , the world order is jointly built, and economic and social progress are shared.

HOLD FAST TO THE CONCEPT OF A WORLD SHARED BY ALL

China champions the development of "a community with a shared future for mankind", which has been widely accepted by the international community and become an important consensus of global governance.

Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico spoke highly of Xi's innovative concept of promoting the establishment of a community with a shared future for mankind.

Lord Tu'ivakano Clyde Drexler USA Jersey , speaker of the Legislative Assembly of Tonga and former prime minister, said China's impressive feat is an inspiration to developing countries including Tonga.

China has over the past five years set its own independent course governed by a policy of development-for-all, said Michael Steger Christian Laettner USA Jersey , president of the Bay Area Chapter of the International Schiller Institute. He attributed China's achievements to the strong Chinese leadership. His organization is a global political and economic think tank with headquarters in Germany and the United States.

Steger noted that China's willingness to blaze its own pathway, with an orientation to share the means of development, has now become a stabilizing factor for the world.

With great strength comes great responsibility Chris Paul USA Jersey , and Xi has already displayed that responsibility, said Sourabh Gupta, a senior policy analyst at the Institute for China-America Studies Chris Mullin USA Jersey , a Washington-based independent think tank.
