NCAA Women's Golf Selection Show Set For April 25
April 24, 2018


COLUMBIA, S.C. – The NCAA Division I Women’s Golf Selection Show is set for Wed., Apr. 25, at 5:30 p.m. ET. The event, which will air on Golf Channel and be streamed live at GolfChannel.com, will reveal the 72 teams and 24 individuals selected to compete at one of four regional championship sites from May 7-9.

This year’s regional sites are San Francisco, Calif. (TPC Harding Park), Austin, Texas (University of Texas Golf Club), Madison, Wis. (University Ridge Golf Course) and Tallahassee, Fla. (Don Veller Seminole Golf Course & Club). The Gamecocks won the 2018 Florida State Match-Up at the Don Veller Seminole Course in February.

Carolina will make its 25th NCAA Regional appearance and qualify for the NCAA postseason for the ninth time under head coach Kalen Anderson this spring.

Each region’s top six teams and top three individual not on the advancing teams will punch a ticket to the 2018 NCAA Championship, set for May 18-23 at Karsten Creek Golf Club in Stillwater, Okla.

Golf Channel will broadcast the NCAA Championship for the fourth-straight year, providing more than 100 news and tournament hours for the men and women’s tournaments.

Carolina, one of four schools to reach the NCAA Championship in each of the last eight years, has captured an NCAA Regional Title in each of the previous three seasons. The Gamecocks boast five regional championships since 2010, winning their latest one last spring at the 2017 NCAA Columbus Regional.

Carolina sophomore Ana Pelaez earned the individual title in Columbus last year, while former Gamecock Katelyn Dambaugh (T3) and current senior Ainhoa Olarra (T5) also grabbed top-five showings.

The No. 9 Gamecocks collected runner-up honors at the 2018 SEC Championship this past weekend after falling to No. 3 Arkansas in the match play finals Sunday at Greystone Country Club in Birmingham, Ala. Olarra captured the individual title at the conference tournament, finishing the stroke play portion at 7-under 209 before defeating Arkansas’ Maria Fassi in a playoff.

Carolina enters the NCAA postseason with top-five finishes in three of its five spring events in a stretch highlighted by its victory at the 2018 Florida State Match-Up.
