SwingU Ambassador Emma Schimpf Wins Dixie Women’s Amateur In Playoff

SwingU, the sports technology and media company, would like to congratulate SwingU Ambassador Emma Schimpf for winning the 2022 Dixie Women’s Amateur.

Schimpf, a sophomore at the College of Charleston, started using the SwingU App and its proprietary strokes gained and stat tracking system in November 2022. Schimpf shot rounds of 67-70-70-68 at Palm Aire Country Club in Pompano Beach, Fla. to reach a playoff, which she won on the third hole of sudden death.

“I really enjoyed playing in this event and it was a real test of my game with my ball striking not being at 100 percent,” Schimpf told AmateurGolf.com. “My short game stayed strong and putting definitely held me in there, I stayed patient the whole tournament along with keeping a good attitude. It’s a great way to end the 2022 golf season.”

Schimpf’s strokes gained stats backed up her words. Over four rounds of competition, she lost strokes to par off the tee (-2.7 SG), but gained in the other four facets (approach, chip/pitch, sand & putting), headlined by her short game, which accounted for +3.9 strokes vs. par chipping & pitching, sand and putting.

The victory rounded out a fantastic 2022 for Schimpf. She’s now won three times since October, including a first-place finish at the Evie Odom Invitational in Virginia Beach and co-medalist honors at the Edisto Island Invitational.

Schimpf is ranked 22nd by Golfstat in Division I collegiate women’s golf and 37th nationally in the Golfweek/Sagarin individual rankings.

Since the start of 2021, more than 100 active professional and top-tier collegiate golfers have been using the SwingU App and performance data platform to track their strokes gained and game-improvement data.
