LOS ANGELES – The No. 11 ranked UCLA women's golf team has earned a bid to the Tallahassee Regional, as announced at the NCAA Women's Golf Selection Show on Wednesday afternoon.
Earning the No. 2 seed in the region, the Bruins will travel across the country to Tallahassee, Fla., to take part in the opening round of the tournament hosted by Florida State at Seminole Legacy Golf Club on May 9-11.

Forsyth is coming off her ninth victory at the NCAA Regional Championships after securing a title at last year's NCAA Louisville Regional Championships site in 2020-21.
