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.
