NORMAN – The NCAA Division I Women’s Golf Committee announced Thursday the teams and individuals that will compete in the 2017 NCAA Golf Championships. The Sooners were selected as the No. 6 seed in the NCAA Lubbock Regional, which will be held May 8-10 at The Rawls Course in Lubbock, Texas.
The 18-team regional, hosted by Texas Tech University, is one of four 54-hole preliminary events for the NCAA Championship finals.

The Sooners will match up with four Big 12 schools in the regional, including No. 5-seed Texas, No. 9 Texas Tech, No. 10 TCU and No. 13 Iowa State. Baylor, Kansas State and Oklahoma State also earned a postseason bid.
Other regional sites include the UNM Championship Course in Albuquerque, N.M., the Ironwood Golf and Country Club in Greenville, N.C., and the Scarlet Course/OSU Golf Course in Columbus, Ohio.
