The Stanford Cardinal have won its second national championship in program history with a 3-2 win over Oregon in the title match.
The Cardinal become the first No. 1 seed to win the title since the championship switched to match play in 2015. They also became the first team since Arizona State in 2017 to win the team and individual championship in the same year.
Stanford’s Brooke Seay and Aline Krauter were the first two off in the evening, and they both came away with wins on the 15th hole. Seay and Krauter also never trailed at any point in their matches. At one point, Krauter got out to a six-hole lead and Seay was up by five. 
Other than Oregon’s Tze-Han Lu, who won her match, only Briana Chacon led at one point in her match for the Ducks. Chacon was able to come up clutch and steal a point away on the 18th hole to make it 2-2. 
It all came down to Stanford’s Rose Zhang and Oregon’s Sofie Kibsgaard Nielsen on hole 17 where Zhang was up 2. Zhang was able to close out Kibsgaard on 17 to win the national title. On that final hole, Kibsgaard was assessed a stroke-penalty for her push cart rolling over her ball prior to her second stroke. That gave Zhang a bit of breathing room in order to close it out.

Stanford maintained its lead throughout the day while Oregon and Texas A&M jostled for second-place over the final two holes. The Cardinal even had a hole in one!
Things were close in the battle for the eight spot as LSU dropped from its spot in the top eight to start the day. Georgia took the final spot in match-play after shooting +2 today and +30 overall.
In individual action, Stanford’s Rose Zhang completed the wire-to-wire victory, finishing 6 under par. However, Zhang’s win wasn’t a lock throughout the day as she shot +3 in round four, allowing others like Texas A&M’s Jennie Park to pull within three strokes, despite Park trailing by double-digit strokes to enter the day. Regardless, Zhang held on to win the 2022 DI women’s golf individual title. She’s the 10th freshman to ever win the women’s individual title.

The fourth round of the 2022 DI women’s golf championship gets underway today, as 15 teams compete for eight spots in the next round. 
Stanford leads the pack even to par, while Oregon sits in second place at 9-over and Texas A&M in third at 13-over. LSU and San Jose State are tied for seventh place at 24-over. The teams in spots No. 9-15 will be fighting all day to get back into that coveted top-8 for match play.

With the leaders already in the clubhouse, the fight for a spot in the top 15 spots didn’t disappoint.

For the playoff, each team would have one golfer play one hole between holes 14-18. The lowest combined score would move on to the next round.
The Gamecocks came out on top by one stroke beating the Demon Deacons 22-23 in order to move on.
