STILLWATER – The road to the NCAA Championships will go through California for the Oklahoma State women’s golf team. The Cowgirls earned the No. 2 seed at the Stanford Regional, which will take place May 10-12 at Stanford Golf Course.
OSU is making its 27th NCAA Regional appearance and the first under head coach Greg Robertson. The Cowgirls are looking to advance to the NCAA Championships for the 22nd time in program history, and for the first time since 2016.
The low six teams and the low three individuals not on those teams at each of the four NCAA Regional sites (for a total of 24 teams and 12 individuals) will advance to the NCAA National Championship in Scottsdale, Arizona on May 21-26.

The Sooners are the No. 9 seed at the regional, which will be played at the Ohio State University Golf Club with Duke as the No. 1 seed.
It’s the Sooners’ fourth consecutive regionals appearance and ninth in 11 postseasons under head coach Veronique Drouin-Luttrell.
“We are so grateful to play in the Columbus Regional this season,” Drouin-Luttrell said. “We’ve had a solid year so far and can’t wait to see what’s next for us as a team. The regional tournament is another chapter in our book, and we’re ready to compete.”
The Sooners are playing their best golf of the season, fresh off a fourth-place finish at the Big 12 Championship and tallying a top-five placement at every event this season other than one.

Oklahoma has rewritten the record book under Drouin-Luttrell, setting the top 12 scoring averages in program history since she arrived in 2009. This year’s Sooner squad is highlighted by juniors Hannah Screen and Mikhaela Fortuna and owns the second-lowest team average in OU history.
