It seems evident that golf is in the Woods family. Cheyenne Woods has proved that her DNA has golf in it. Cheyenne is Tiger Woods niece and she is turning out to be an avid golfer destined for bigger and greater heights. A description of her has been mentioned as just the perfect representative of Tiger Woods golfing legacy. Cheyenne Woods is now 18 years old. She has got a presence and a fluid swing and the almond-shaped eyes plus a uncle Tiger Woods wide smile.

Cheyenne has made her mark in Wake Forest University college golf where she is the only first-year student on the golf team. She got her first set of clubs as a youngster from the late Earl Woods Sr, her grandfather and Tiger’s father. The old man taught her how to swing, as he had years earlier with his now famous son, when she visited him in California during school holidays. Cheyenne is daughter to Earl Woods jr who was married to her mother Susan Woods until they divorced when she was only 2 years old.

“She did have a special relationship with her grandfather,” Says her mother Susan.

Cheyenne has confessed that her mother has played a vital role in developing her golfing skills “My mom and I would go to the park every night and hit balls because she didn’t know what a driving range were,” Cheyenne told reporters. She was instrumental in helping her college golf team get a ninth position out of fifteen during the college tournament. Cheyenne Woods three-round score of 225 (averaging 75 per round) put her in a tie for 26th out of 75 players. Every eye is on the young girl golfer and word is that she is destined for better things. She is inspired by her uncle Tiger Woods who remains a legendary golfer and a golfer of the century. Cheyenne has pointed out that, she wants to follow Tigers footsteps though they rarely meet. She is optimistic that she will be able to play more and showcase her talent in the college-level tournaments - meeting new people, making new friends.
