Charlotte, NC - After three days of competition, the regional round of the 2023 NCAA DI women's golf championship has reached its end.

Thirty teams, five from each of the six regions, have qualified for the finals scheduled for May 19-24 at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona. Out of the thirty teams that advanced, the SEC claimed seven of those spots in the 2023 NCAA DI women's golf national championship.

Georgia defended their home course in the Athens Regional. For the second time in three years, Georgia and Jenny Bae swept the team and individual championships. The Bulldogs carded a 13-over 851, fighting off a late push from South Carolina, which shot a 11-under 853.

"We wanted to win," head coach Josh Brewer said. "We haven't won all year. We felt truthfully that we were the best team on our home golf course. It's nice for that to happen. But just like this week, everyone starts at zero in nine, 10 days in Arizona."

The Gamecocks and the Rebels clinch their spots in the finals as well, placing second and fourth. For the fourth time in program history, Ole Miss has punched its ticket after a 17-over 881 performance.

In the Westfield Regional, Mississippi State was able to capture the regional title for the first time in program history after earning a 19-under 845. Their Tuesday score of 275, 13 shots under par, was the primary reason for the advancement. Vanderbilt placed third at 16-under 848 to advance to its second straight NCAA Women's Golf Championships.

Texas A&M women's golf team advanced to the NCAA Championships for the second-consecutive year after finishing tied for third in the San Antonio Regional. The Aggies tied with Oklahoma State carding a 16-over 880.

LSU played its final eight holes at 8-under par to rally to get one of the five qualifying spots for the NCAA National Championship. The Tigers placed fifth finishing with a 15-over 879.
