  • No. 1 Stanford women's golf is set to host the NCAA Stanford Regional, Monday through Wednesday, at Stanford Golf Course. The course will be set up at 6,267 yards and a par 71.
  • The tournament features 54 holes played over three days with the top four teams and two individuals from non-qualifying teams advancing to the NCAA Women's Golf Championships, beginning May 20 at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz. The other five regional sites are Albuquerque, N.M.

  • The qualifying individuals for the Stanford Regional are: Riana Mission (San Francisco), Jennifer Koga (Sacramento State), Kirsten Baete (Nebraska), Victoria Gailey (Nevada), Leah John (Nevada) and Siripatsorn Patchana (Grand Canyon).
  • The Cardinal is looking for its 12th straight NCAA Championship appearance, qualifying for every national championship since 2010. 
  • Last year at NCAA Regionals, the Cardinal posted a school-record 28-under 824 and a dominant 30-stroke victory, to win the Stanford Regional. The Cardinal set school records for 18 (-13, second round), 36 (-25) and 54 holes (-28) to advance to its 35th NCAA Championship all-time. Rachel Heck won individual medalist honors at the Regional at 11-under, while Angelina Ye finished second at 10-under.
  • Stanford's lineup will be Rose Zhang, Brooke Seay, Aline Krauter, Sadie Englemann and Rachel Heck, with Caroline Sturdza as the alternate. Substitutions are permissible in NCAA Championships play. 
  • Four Cardinal were named All-Pac-12 following the Pac-12 Championships: Heck, Aline Krauter, Brooke Seay and Rose Zhang. All four of those individuals were selected to this summer's Arnold Palmer Cup, set to be played in Switzerland from July 1-3.
  • Monday's 8:44 a.m. tee time off the first tee is expected to feature three of the top five players in the country in Stanford's Zhang (#1), USC's Amari Avery (#5) and LSU's Ingrid Lindblad (#2). 
  • The Stanford Regional could feature as many as five of Team USA's eight individuals playing in this summer's Curtis Cup: Zhang and Heck from Stanford, Avery from USC, Jensen Castle from Kentucky and Lantanna Stone from LSU. Additionally, Stanford's Seay is an alternate. 
  • Anne Walker was named to the Women's Golf Coaches Association's (WGCA) watch list for the Jackie Steinmann National Coach of the Year honors recently. Walker has guided the consensus No. 1 Cardinal to five full-field victories this season and seen five individuals claim individual medalist honors at tournaments.
