Ambassador Spotlight: Emma de Groot

A former standout Division I collegiate golfer for the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and native Australian, Emma de Groot has been consistently utilizing the GolfForever Swing Trainer for her own game, but also with her many clients. As a PGA Performance Instructor and the Director for Women’s Development at Modern Golf in Ontario, Canada, the GolfForever Training System has become a staple tool in Emma’s teaching.

“I love its versatility, its portability, and the fact that so many of the exercises mirror the golf swing in a way that’s easily transferable and functional,” Emma said of her incorporation of GolfForever.

As a collegiate golfer, Emma won six tournaments for the Mocs and was named the 2011 SoCon Player of the Year, accolades that later earned her the honor of being the first women’s golfer inducted into the UTC Athletics Hall of Fame in 2019.

Emma also enjoyed a six-year playing career on the Symmetra Tour from 2012-2017, even earning LPGA Tour status in 2015. With help from a name GolfForever users may recognize, Emma notched five career top-10 finishes. “GolfForever’s Andrea Doddato trained me for a while when I played on tour. She has a clear knowledge of the golf swing and her programs are designed in a way that really enhances the correct movement patterns” Emma noted.

Recently named the 2022 PGA of Canada Female Player of the Year, Emma balances her instructional and teaching duties with a continued passion for competing at a high level. The GolfForever app has kept her healthy and on the links, even after retirement from the day-in day-out grind of tour-level travel and pressure. “As someone that suffers from chronic back issues, I use the injury prevention [section of the GolfForever app] most, followed by rotational power.”
