Individuals to watch

  • Kiara Romero, Fr., Oregon: Romero, ranked sixth in the NCAA golf rankings, has two victories this year and placed third at the Pac-12 Championship.
  • Louise Rydqvist, Jr., South Carolina: The winner of the Annika Intercollegiate back in the fall, Rydqvist is the top player on the top-seeded Gamecocks. She finished runner-up at the SEC Championship.
  • Anna Morgan, Gr., Furman: Morgan has been one of the most successful college golfers this season, racking up four victories, including the Southern Conference title. She also has six top-three finishes.

Favorite to win? Auburn. The Tigers were on the verge of hosting the regional until USC’s runner-up finish at the Pac-12 Championship knocked them out of a top-six spot. However, don’t overlook the Tigers at home. With midseason enrollee Anna Davis, as well as reigning U.S. Women’s Amateur champion Megan Schofill, Auburn should be able to take care of business on their home course.

Non top-5 seed most likely to steal a spot? Michigan. Monet Chun and Hailey Borja are names college golf fans should know. They’ve both had great runs at the past two U.S. Women’s Amateurs, and they’re plenty experienced playing college golf. If the Wolverines depth has a strong week, Michigan can be dancing into the NCAA Championship.
