SIOUX FALLS, S.D. -

It took just one year for the GreatLife Challenge at Willow Run to become one of the top stops on the Symetra Tour.

And it's popularity should only increase after the second edition this year.  The course was on full display at media day this afternoon as pros begin to filter in.

The GreatLIFE Challenge has the second highest prize purse on the tour at $210,000, attracting 144 pros.

And for the first time a South Dakotan will play.  SDSU freshman and Parkston native Sydney Bormann won a qualifier last week to earn a sponsor exemption.

"It's always been a big goal of mine to play in a professional event so I'm really looking forward to playing alongside some of the best players!"  Bormann says.

"Just everything that GreatLife has done for the event. This is one of the favorite events of all the players on the tour. It really feels like a major to us. The big purse, the hospitality is great, and we're treated really well here."  Symetra Tour Pro Marissa Steen says.

The tournament begins on Thursday and runs through Sunday.
