Cheyenne Woods wins first pro tournament
By Torleif Sorenson on 8/31/12
Back in 2009, we told you that Cheyenne Woods was good. Three years later, Tiger's niece has graduated from Wake Forest University, following a collegiate career that included two tournament wins and school records for the lowest single-season and career scoring averages.
On Thursday, the 22-year-old Woods finished a 54-hole tournament in the SunCoast Ladies Series at -6, winning at LPGA International's Champions Course in Daytona Beach.
Justifiably, Tiger tweeted about her accomplishment:
Very few college golfers graduate ready to be world-beaters upon turning professional (her uncle being a notable exception), but following a consistently good collegiate and amateur career, Cheyenne Woods appears to be methodically improving her game with her sights obviously set on the LPGA tour.
This writer refuses to bet against her.

i've played that course and it's tough. good for Cheyenne. i hope she becomes a monster on the LPGA because we need some more Americans in the top 10.
So i get Global Golf Post -- -they have a little blurb about this on the one page. Headline: "Tiger's Niece wins first Pro Title"> I've never been so outraged in my entire life. So much in fact that i wrote in to GGP. Thanks for not robbing her of the accomplishment like they did. Well done, Cheyenne. Well done indeed.
She is good & good looking.
