College golf’s championship season rolls on to regionals this week, with the women first to play.
The four regional championship sites each feature 18 teams and six individuals (72 teams and 24 individuals, total), with play beginning Monday, May 10 and ending Wednesday, May 12. The top six teams (24 total) and the low three individuals (12 total) not on a qualifying team from each regional will advance to the NCAA Division I Women’s Championship at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona, May 21-26.
Below you’ll find recaps for Wednesday’s final rounds, as well as a breakdown of what to watch for from each regional as play concludes from all four sites.
This regional was decided without any golf being played. The NCAA canceled the Baton Rouge regional due to course conditions that they were deemed "playable," just not at a "championship level" after heavy rains throughout the week. Because the event was canceled, the top six seeds will automatically advance to the NCAA Championship (Golfweek/Sagarin ranking in parentheses): LSU (5), Ole Miss (6), Baylor (8), Oregon (19), Maryland (20) and Alabama (29). The advancing individuals are the top-ranked players according to Golfstat who are not on advancing teams: Houston's Karen Fredgaard, Miami's Nataliya Guseva and Sam Houston State's Hanna Alberto.
