Cheyenne Woods Wins Australian Ladies Masters

Matt Roberts

Wake Forest graduate Cheyenne Woods has the game to back up her last name and today she earned her first major professional tour victory.

Cheyenne Woods, the niece of a pretty good player by the name of Tiger Woods, shot a Sunday round of four under par en route to win the Australian Ladies Masters by two strokes with a score of 16 under par. For her efforts she earned $51,000 in prize money and a two-year exemption on the Ladies European Tour events. Woods will compete next week in the LPGA Tour-sanctioned Women's Australian Open.

The 2012 Wake Forest graduate is arguably the greatest player in Wake Forest women's golf history. Woods holds the school record for the lowest single season scoring average (73.47) and career scoring average (74.31). She was a two-time All-American and three-time All-ACC honoree. She finished more rounds under par than any player in school history and won the 2011 ACC Championship by a whopping seven-shots.

Golf is a game where you simply cannot hide and get by on reputation or with the help of teammates. Ultimately it just comes down to the player's ability to have the mental toughness and skill to beat his or her opponents. In that sense, golf is  the most pure sport in the world where ultimately talent and hard work prevails above all else. Cheyenne Woods did not win this golf tournament because she was Tiger's niece; she won it because of the hard work she has put in on the practice range and the putting green.

Blogger So Dear and Wake Forest are both incredibly proud of Cheyenne and will continue to cover her young and promising career.
