California, Alabama, UCLA, Texas, New Mexico and Washington are the No. 1 seeds heading into the NCAA postseason, which begins May 16. They are among the 81 teams that will make up the six NCAA Regional fields.

The Golden Bears are looking to set the record for victories in a season with 11. The team picked up No. 10 at the Pac-12 Conference Championship last week.

Alabama, No. 2 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings, is the No. 1 seed at Baton Rouge Regional to be played at the University Club of Baton Rouge. SEC rivals, Florida and host LSU, are the second and third seeds, respectively. Alabama won the SEC Conference Championship by two shots.

UCLA is the top seed in the Tempe Regional. Two East Coast power teams, ACC champions Duke and Georgia, are the second and third seeds. UCLA is No. 4 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings.

No. 3 in the Golfweek Rankings, Texas, leads the charge in the Arkansas Regional at The Blessings Golf Club. Host Arkansas and Big-12 challenger Oklahoma State are the other top seeds in the regional. Texas is the defending NCAA National Champions after edging Alabama at Riviera.

In the Columbus Regional, New Mexico will take the No. 1 seed at The Ohio State University Golf Club – Scarlet Course followed by Stanford and Auburn. New Mexico is coming off a dominating performance at the Mountain West Conference Championships. The Lobos won by eight shots.
