2021 NCAA Division I women's golf championships field announced

Arizona State women's golf

The field for the 2021 NCAA Division I Women's Golf Championships, to be conducted May 21-26 at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona has been determined.

Regional competitions were scheduled to be held May 10-12, with the top six teams and three individuals not on a qualifying team advancing to the national championships from each of the four regional sites. Regional sites included Baton Rouge, La.; Columbus, Ohio; Louisville, Ky.; and Stanford, Calif. Because of over seven inches of rain in Baton Rouge since Monday, play at that regional was unable to be conducted as scheduled, with advancing teams and individuals determined by the original seeding used for selection to the 2021 championship. Of the 384 regional participants, 132 advanced to the finals.

Arizona State will serve as the host of the championships and GOLF Channel will provide live coverage for the final three days of the championships May 24, 25 and 26.

Stanford, Wake Forest, Oklahoma State, Virginia Tech, Arizona and Southern Cal all advance out of the Stanford region

Home-course advantage is a thing — especially if you are Stanford. The Cardinal blew the competition out of the water in their home region, shooting -28 through three rounds of play. That's 30 strokes better than the team that finished second — Wake Forest, which shot +2 through three rounds. 

Oklahoma State (+3), Virginia Tech (+4), Arizona (+5) and Southern Cal (+8) round out the six teams advancing from the Stanford regional to NCAA nationals. 

San Jose State's Kajsa Arwefjall shot a 210 through three rounds to claim an individual qualifier spot, along with Fresno State's Brigitte Thibault and Denver's Anna Zanusso who both shot 211 through the three rounds. 

9:17 pm, May 12, 2021

Georgia, Duke, Arizona State, Kentucky, Michigan and Kent State all to advance out of the Columbus region

Georgia had another spectacular showing in the third round of the Columbus region, shooting 288 to hold their three-round average to +1 — 15 strokes ahead of the second-place team. 

Duke (+16), Arizona State (+16), Kentucky (+19), Michigan (+21) and Kent State (+21) all followed the Bulldogs to round out the six teams that will advance to the championship from the Columbus region. 

Vanderbilt's Louise Yu and Celina Sattelkau each move on as individual competitors for the Commodores. Yu shot +1 through three rounds as Sattelkau shot +2. Virginia's Beth Lillie will also advance to the championship as an individual. Lillie shot +1 through the three regional rounds. 

8:52 pm, May 12, 2021

Florida State, Texas, UCLA, Auburn, Michigan State and South Carolina all advance out of the Louisville region

Florida State held steady as the No. 1 team out of the Louisville region today, shooting +8 to claim the top spot and berth into the championship. Following the Seminoles, Texas and UCLA tied for the second slot, each shooting +11. Auburn and Michigan State also tied for fourth — the Tigers and Spartans each shot +14 in the three rounds. Auburn was the only team to shoot under par during today's third-round as their -2 score propelled them up eight spots in the region. 

The last spot was claimed by South Carolina after a one-hole playoff determined the Gamecocks the spot over Arkansas. Arkansas and South Carolina were each tied at +15 on the three rounds before entering the one-hole playoff. 

Mikayla Bardwell (Tennesseee), Lauren Hartlage (Louisville) and Cristin Eisenbeiss (North Florida) will advance to the championship as individuals. Bardwell leads the individual qualifiers, shooting 213 on the three rounds with Hartlage and Eisenbeiss following, each shooting 214.

7:22 pm, May 12, 2021

LSU, Ole Miss, Baylor, Oregon, Maryland and Alabama to advance

The NCAA announced Wednesday that due to the University Club at the Baton Rouge Regional receiving more than seven inches of rain over the last few days, the regional couldn't be conducted as scheduled and since play couldn't take place Wednesday, the top six teams and the top three individuals not on those teams will advance to the DI Women's Golf Championship.

LSU, Ole Miss, Baylor, Oregon, Maryland and Alabama are the teams that will advance, while Karen Fredgaard (Houston), Nataliya Guseva (Miami (FL)) and Hanna Alberto (Sam Houston) are the individuals who will advance.

Takeaways from the DI Women's Golf Championship selections

Duke Athletics Duke is the No. 1 team in the Columbus regional site.

Duke will have the opportunity to win back-to-back DI Women's Golf Championships. That's the first takeaway from the 2021 DI Women's Golf Championship selections, which were revealed Wednesday, April 28.

The Blue Devils won the 2019 national championship after defeating Wake Forest 3-2. The 2020 championship was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Duke will play in the Columbus regional site as the automatic qualifier out of the Atlantic Coast Conference. Two current members of Duke's roster were on the Blue Devils' 2019  squad – senior  Jaravee Boonchant and junior Gina Kim. Wake Forest, by the way, is listed as the top team in the Stanford regional site.

Of the 72 teams that qualified for the 2021 championship, the SEC leads all conferences with 12 teams, ahead of the ACC and Pac-12 (eight teams apiece), and the Big 12 and Big Ten (seven apiece).
