The Amelia Island Club at Long Point - Amelia Island
July 9-11, 2021


AMELIA ISLAND, Fla. – Just three weeks after finishing runner-up at the Women’s Amateur, Elle Nachmann has come out on top at the Women’s Amateur Stroke Play Championship. Nachmann captured the one-shot victory on Sunday at The Amelia Island Club at Long Point, finishing the weekend at 2-under 214.

"It feels great," Nachmann said. "I knew I was playing really well coming off that great finish at the Women's Amateur. I just told myself to keep doing what I was doing, and I did that. I played my game, stayed consistent. It got a little close at the end, but I managed to finish it out and I'm just super happy. "

Nachmann, who will be begin her second year at the University of Pennsylvania in the fall, began the final round with a four-shot lead, after firing a 4-under 68 on Saturday to take the 36-hole lead, finishing the day with six birdies. The Boca Raton native got the final round started with a 1-over front nine.

Nachmann ran into some trouble on the back side, playing Nos. 13-15 at 3 over. But she turned it around, rolling in a birdie putt on the 16th to extend her lead to two shots. She secured the championship with a final-round 76.

This is the fourth FSGA championship for Nachmann, who has previously captured the Mixed Shoot-Out, Summer Mixed and Women's Four-Ball. Her win at the WOmen's Amateur Stroke Play marks her first individual FSGA win.

Elizabeth Kondal took home a runner-up finish, putting together rounds of 69-76-70 to post a 1-under 215. Carla Alvarez Perez and Kim Benedict finished the weekend in a tie for third place at 1-over 217.

Benedict’s first-round 68 and Nachmann’s second 68 were the low rounds of the championship.
