Emily Bastel-Glaser grew up learning the game
of golf from her father, Dave, on the family’s
9-hole public golf course in Upper Sandusky.
She was a stand-out performer in high school,
earning All-State Honors three out of four years.
She also won three Ohio Women’s Amateur
titles in 1999, 2001 and 2003.
She was amember of Michigan State’sWomen’s
Golf Team from 1999-2002 and earned All-Big
Ten honors all four years as a Spartan. Emily
won the Big Ten’s Individual Championship
in 2000 and was a member of the Big Ten’s
Championship Team in 2001.
Moving into professional ranks, she played on both
the Symetra and LPGA Tours from 2004-2008.
Emily decided to try her hand at coaching and
landed as an assistant coach to Jan Dowling
at collegiate women’s golf powerhouse Duke.
When Dowling moved to the University of
Florida, Emily followed.
Dowling unexpectedly resigned as the Gators’
head coach after a successful 2011-2012
season, and Bastel-Glaser was given a courtesy
interview by the administration. The Athletic
Director and his staff were so impressed with
her knowledge of the women’s game that they
immediately closed the process and named
Bastel-Glaser the new University of Florida
Women’s Head Coach.
Emily now has her own recruits in place and
they are in contention at every tournament.
The team just won their third title of the year at
the Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate in New
Orleans and is ranked No. 9 in NCAA Division
I by Golfweek Magazine.
One of the best golfers to ever come out of northwest
Ohio is rapidly gaining a reputation as one of the
best collegiate golf coaches in the nation.
She may give Buckeye fans a reason to learn
the Gator Chop.
