The Niece Also Rises

Uncle Tiger is very happy for his niece Cheyenne, who won her first professional event over the weekend, taking the Volvik RACV Ladies Masters in Australia. He tweeted, “Way to go… A great win and accomplishment. I’m so proud of you.” In her second year on the Ladies European Tour, the 23-year-old Ms. Woods closed with a four-under-par 69 to win by two strokes, and that after missing the cut the week before in New Zealand. As might be expected, the headline writers have been all over the win, with lines like she “proves more than just a name” and regular references to her uncle (ours included, of course), including the fact that she is one-up in wins for 2014. But Ms. Woods definitely has game, as these video highlights prove. Furthermore, her career scoring average while playing for Wake Forest, where she was a two-time All American, was the lowest in school history, and she had more than 30 victories as an amateur. She also won an event on the SunCoast Ladies Tour, a developmental tour for pros, in August 2012. Still, she’s likely to be known as Tiger’s niece for a long, long time. Especially if she keeps on winning.
