In the end, Moore secured the crown for the Wildcats after hitting a birdie on the 19th hole as Abe forced a sudden death. Moore had gained a 1-up advantage on the 17th hole of regulation, but Abe perfectly played the 18th to birdie and square the match.

Bianca Pagdanganan powered University of Arizona to the US National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) women's golf championship Wednesday that earned her an exemption to play in an LPGA event in July. The berth in the title match is the first for Alabama since the NCAA adopted the current match-play format in 2015. The Wildcats needed an eagle from Pagdanganan on her final stroke play hole to even have a shot at making Monday's cut. Her two-putt birdie sent the match to extra holes. I just kept breathing, and my assistant coach [Derek Radley] he was by my side the whole time and was with me no matter what would have happened. After her approach shot landed in the thick rough off the right of the green, and she failed to get it on the green after a couple shots, she conceded the hole to Moore. The last visit came two years ago at the NCAA Regionals, when Clemson finished third to advance to the national championship tournament. Trailing, and needing a big play on the final hole, Pagdananan made one of the most memorable putts to keep Arizona's season alive, extending the match, sending it to a playoff.

"When I got to one down, I just told myself there is a lot of golf left", Moore said. "It was such a huge dream of mine, and knowing that it has come true is wonderful". "It was wonderful. Going into this hole (18), I had no idea where we were at".

The eighth-seeded Wildcats waxed hot from the get-go of the semifinals behind victories from Haley Moore, Gigi Stoll, and Sandra Nordaas, giving them a shot at their third national championship against Alabama. The Championship Match will then be on May 30 to determine which team wins the coveted title. The other members of the five-player Crimson Tide team also played well in the semi-finals. "But ever since that putt, it helped pump my teammates up and I think that is what helped us get there". The Wildcats, seeded No. 8 for match play, upset No. 1 seed UCLA, 3-2, in the quarterfinals on Tuesday.

"I'm not going to lie, this one is a little bit more special to me", Ianello said.

"We thought that Bianca would be better off with Arizona", said Sam, Pagdanganan's father.

When the going gets tough, the tough Bear Down!

Golf Channel will broadcast the title match starting at 4 p.m. ET.
