The second annual GreatLIFE Challenge is returning to Sioux Falls this week. It's already become a favorite among competitors and is a part of the LPGA Symetra Tour.
Golfer Christine Meier is from Rochester Hills, Michigan and says many of the golfers are from all over the world. She says there's golfers from Europe, Asia, South America and more. Meier says the experience of playing against women of this talent is exciting, and many of the women are friends and have seen each other in other tournaments.
Meier says the GreatLIFE Challenge format is set up in four rounds starting Thursday with 144 girls. Thursday and Friday have two rounds, then cuts are made to the top 60 going into the weekend. Only the players over the weekend will win any money. The GreatLIFE Challenge purse is twice the size of a normal tournament purse at $210,000.
The GreatLIFE Challenge Symetra Tour is Wednesday, September 1 through Sunday, September 4 at Willow Run Golf Course. Tickets are $5 for GreatLIFE members, $10 for non-GreatLIFE members.
