NCAA Championship: Pairings for final match between No. 2 Duke and No. 5 Wake Forest

By

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – A school from the Pac-12 Conference will not win the national championship today when the NCAA Division I Women’s Golf Championship concludes here at Blessings Golf Club.

Instead, we are guaranteed to have a champion from the ACC with Duke and Wake Forest going head-to-head for the title.

For Duke, the Blue Devils will be aiming at a seventh national title with the last one coming in 2014, the year prior to the format switching to match play. Wake Forest has never won the national championship in women’s golf.

“This is cool,” said Duke head coach Dan Brooks to Wake Forest head coach Kim Lewellen on the all-ACC final after both made their picks.

Here are the final pairings (Golfweek/Sagarin player rankings in first parentheses and 2019 NCAA Championship head-to-head records second).
