INDIANAPOLIS -- TCU senior Sanna Nuutinen has been selected to play in the NCAA Women's Golf Central Regional on May 8-10 in Stillwater, Okla.
Nuutinen will be making her fourth consecutive appearance in the NCAA Regionals. The TCU women's golf program has been represented in the postseason by either the team or an individual in 19 consecutive seasons.
The top-two individuals from each of the three NCAA Regionals will advance to the NCAA Championships on May 20-23 in Tulsa, Okla.
Nuutinen, ranked 82nd nationally by Golfweek, was the only senior for the Horned Frogs this season. She's enjoyed a career-best year with a 73.7 stroke average.
A native of Helsinki, Finland, Nuutinen has seven top-20 finishes this season, including a pair of top-10 results. She was the lone member of the Horned Frogs to play in all 10 tournaments.
As a sophomore, Nuutinen won the 2012 Mountain West championship on a fourth playoff hole.
