2022 NCAA Women’s Division I Golf Regional Champs Selected | Golf News and Tour Information

Stanford, Oregon, South Carolina, Wake Forest, San Jose State and Oklahoma State each won the No. 1 seeds as the NCAA Division I Women’s Golf Committee took announced its selection of 72 teams and 36 individuals to compete in the 2022 NCAA Women’s Regionals on May 9. -11.

Twelve SEC schools earned spots in regional fields, the most of any conference, followed by 10 from the ACC and nine from the Pac-12. The Big 12 has seven schools in the playoffs and the Big Ten has six.

For the first time, there will be six women’s regional tournaments, each scheduled for 54 holes, an increase from four in previous years. The NCAA Women’s Golf Committee made the decision to increase the number of regional tournaments in November to make it easier to run the game each day in the event of inclement weather. Last May, the NCAA canceled the women’s regional tournament scheduled for the University Club in Baton Rouge, La., without the players ever hitting a shot after several days of rain on LSU’s home course. The controversial decision meant the top six ranked schools qualified for the NCAA championship and the rest saw their seasons frustratingly cut short.

Each region will now have 12 teams instead of 18 and six individuals, with the top four teams and two individuals qualifying for the 2022 NCAA Women’s Championship at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, May 20-25.

For the seventh time, the national championship will include a stroke play segment to determine the individual champion (72 holes) and narrow the field to eight schools who will then compete in a one-on-one match-play bracket to determine a team. champion. Twenty-four different programs have moved to match play since the format was adopted in 2015, with Stanford the only school to have reached match play six times while USC and Duke have reached it five times.

Ole Miss is the defending NCAA champion, having beaten Oklahoma State in the Finals last May at Grayhawk GC. The Rebels were the first SEC school to win the title since the decision to incorporate game play.
