If you’re looking for a preview of future LPGA rookies or if you just want to see some terrific young golfers at work, there’s some great golf competition coming up this week, May 22-27, at the 2015 NCAA Women’s Golf Championship.  The Division I field, determined at four regional competitions early in May, includes 24 teams and 12 qualifying individuals not on qualifying teams.

This year’s championship features a format change that combines stroke play and match play in a phased elimination competition and is going to keep things very interesting.

The Championship will begin with all 24 teams and 12 individuals completing in 54 holes of stroke play.  The top 15 teams that emerge from this initial competition, along with the top nine individuals not on an advancing team, will advance for one additional day of stroke play.

In effect, the 72-hole stroke play event serves two purposes.  It will determine the top eight teams for the match play competition as well as the 72-hole stroke play individual champion.

The University of South Florida will serve as the host of the championships at The Concession Golf Club in Bradenton, Florida and the Golf Channel will provide live coverage for the final three days of the championships on Monday, May 25, Tuesday, the 26 and Wednesday, the 27.

ProGolfNow will provide ongoing commentary and coverage of both the women’s and men’s championships.  Follow us on Twitter @ProGolfNow and we’ll notify you when we publish NCAA Championship news and updates.

The teams and individuals advancing to the 2015 Women’s Championships finals are listed below.  (The Men’s Championship follows the next week.)
