Elizabeth Kondal stays patient, closes strong in Florida Women’s Stroke Play

Keeping the ball in play hasn’t been be an issue for Elizabeth Kondal. The recent Bartram Trail graduate and Florida Times-Union 2020 high school player of the year has been in a nice groove since the FHSAA post-season last fall, with eight top-10 finishes in nine starts in high school and Florida State Golf Association events. 

It’s her putting – or rather her patience – that was the only issue.

Kondal held in her frustration over some early missed chances on Friday in the first round of the Florida Women’s Stroke Play Championship and played her last five holes at 3-under to finish with a 69 at the Amelia Island Club at Long Point, one shot off the lead held by Kim Benedict of Bonita Springs and tied for second with Valeria Sofia Pacheco of Hallandale.
