INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana — The South Carolina No. 3 will travel to the Tallahassee Regional (May 9-11) for the 2022 NCAA Women’s Golf Championship, it was announced Wednesday afternoon during the NCAA Selection Show live on GolfChannel. The Gamecocks will be the No. 1 seed in the 12-team region.
“We are thrilled and honored to earn the No. 1 seed at the Tallahassee Regional,” said the head coach. Kalen Anderson. “We look forward to having the final exams behind us. Our group has prepared very diligently and we will be ready to compete.”
This is the 23rd straight NCAA Region appearance for the program dating back to 1999.
This season marks the first on the women’s side where there will be six regional venues with 12 teams (72 in total) and six individuals (36 in total). The top four teams and top two individuals (who are not part of a progressing team) will advance from each regional venue to the NCAA Women’s Golf Championship (May 20-25), to be held at Grayhawk Golf Club (Raptor Course) in Scottsdale, Arizona for the second year in a row.
This year’s team was ranked in the top five from start to finish and set a new program record with five tournament wins.
Under Anderson, the Gamecocks have won five NCAA regional titles (2010, 2012, 2015, 2016, 2017) and qualified for nine NCAA championships over the past 11 seasons; the program had appeared in the NCAA championship a total of eight times since 1980 before his arrival in 2008.
Carolina clinched its ticket to Grayhawk last season in spectacular fashion, advancing to the playoffs for the final Louisville Regional spot. After a tough first round at the NCAA Championship, the Gamecocks rallied to finish 13and missing NCAA Match Play (top-eight) by just six strokes.
