A total of 72 teams qualified for the 2021 championship, with the SEC leading all conferences with 12 teams in the field. The ACC and Pac-12 both have eight teams apiece, while the Big 12 and Big Ten round out the Power 5 with seven teams apiece. In addition, 24 players have earned individual invites to each of the four regional sites.
From each regional site, six teams and three players will advance to the championship finals. The national championships will be held May 21-26 at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona, hosted by Arizona State and The Thunderbirds.
The No. 1 team in the Columbus regional site, Duke will have an opportunity to win back-to-back DI Women’s Golf Championships. The last time a team went back-to-back was also Duke, during the stroke play era, when they won three straight from 2005-2007.
As of yet, no team has gone back-to-back during the stroke and match play era, which began in 2015.
Also at the Columbus regional is 2017 champion Arizona State.
Last year’s runner-up, Wake Forest, headlines the Stanford Regional site, which also hosts Big 12 Conference champion Oklahoma State and Pac-12 Conference champion Southern California. The 2018 champion Arizona Wildcats will also be competing amongst that field.
