SUGAR GROVE, Ill. – The Saturday round at the 2017 NCAA Division I Women's Golf Championships was cancelled due to weather. Play will resume at Rich Harvest Farms with the Sunday round, beginning at 7:30 a.m. Saturday's original tee times will move to Sunday with no changes in the pairings.

All 24 teams and 12 individuals in the tournament will compete again on Monday, with the pairings for that round being determined by their 36-hole score (leaders in the afternoon wave). The stroke play portion of the championship will culminate with the individual medalist being determined following the 54 holes. The field will then be cut to the top eight teams which advance to the match play quarterfinals.   

Campbell's Nadine White, who is tied for 93rd, will start Sunday from the 10th tee at 12:55 p.m. CDT.

"With the severe weather threats that we monitored throughout Saturday morning, our committee came to the determination that, given the conditions, cancelling Saturday's round was needed to maintain the overall student-athlete experience and the integrity of the championships," said NCAA Division I Women's Golf Committee chair Jim Fee. "We're looking forward to the next two days of stroke play, where we have the opportunity to crown the individual champion, as well as determine the eight teams advancing to match play, which will begin Tuesday morning."

Golf Channel coverage will begin on Monday with pre-game coverage starting at 3 p.m. CT, followed by live coverage at 4 p.m., and continuing through match play action Tuesday and Wednesday.
