Frances Bondad will be playing full-time on the Ladies European Tour in 2009 after finishing second in the LET's Final Qualifying Stage tournament. Bondad posted rounds of 75, 69, 71 and 67 to finish at 10-under 282.
Frances spent time as the No. 1-ranked amateur golfer in Australia in 2006 and early 2007, before turning pro in mid-2007, and won the 2007 Australian Strokeplay Championship.
She played 11 times on the Australian Ladies Professional Golf (ALPG) Tour in the 2007/2008 season, finishing seventh on the money list with multiple runner-up finishes. Her best showing to date outside of Australian is a second at the Ladies Asian Golf Tour's Thailand Ladies Open in 2008.
Last year was her rookie season on the LET, and she recorded two Top 20 finishes with a high of 17th at the Goteborg Masters. And while Frances had to go back to Q-School for 2009, she took care of that little issue her great play last week in Spain.
