Women's Golf Earns No.1 Seed in NCAA Central Regional

April 27, 2009

The top-ranked UCLA women's golf team will participate as the No.1 seed in the NCAA Central Regional at The Ohio State University Scarlet Course, May 7-9.

Sixty-three teams and nine individuals at three regional sites will compete for 24 team berths and six individual spots at the 28th NCAA Division I Women's Golf Championship, May 19-22 near Baltimore, Md. From each regional site, eight teams and two individuals from teams not qualifying will advance to the championship.

"We're delighted with our selection to the NCAA Central Regional," said UCLA Head Coach Carrie Forsyth. "It's a course I'm very familiar with, and Tiffany (Joh) is familiar with it. It's not a particularly tight course. The grass will be similar to Caves Valley (the NCAA site)."

During Forsyth's tenure as head coach, the Bruins have won four regional championships in nine appearances, and have finished no worse than fourth since 2001. In addition, Forsyth has coached three individual NCAA Regional medalists, including current players Maria Jose Uribe ('08) and Sydney Michaels ('07). Finally, the Bruins and Uribe are defending NCAA Central Regional champions.

This season, UCLA has won six tournaments, a national leader, and is averaging 289.4 strokes per round as a team, a figure that is on pace to set a schhol record. For much of the season the Bruins have been ranked No.1 in the GolfStat head-to-head rankings.
