               One note for readers: voting for the poll was closed on April 14, which means that the results from the ACC, SEC and Pac-10 Championships where not available to voters.

While finishing third at yesterday's Pac-10 Championship, UCLA had been coming off an impressive win at the Ping/ASU Invitational earlier this month, explaining how the Bruins received 20 of the 24 first-place votes. It was the first time that UCLA had been ranked No. 1 since the final poll of the 2009-10 season and 11th time overall since Golf World resumed the poll in 2001-02.

Nova Southeastern has won six of eight tournaments this season, including their conference championship yesterday, with the remaining two being events hosted by Division I foes. The Sharks have held the top spot in every poll during the 2010-11 season.

Not much surprise here with Methodist again being ranked No. 1. That said, that DePauw claimed eight first-place votes in interesting since Methodist has won seven titles this season in nine starts after claiming the Jack Leaman Championship on Sunday. Could there be a legitimate rival to keep the Monarchs from claiming their 14th straight NCAA title next month?
