Woods coping with the pressure
Last updated: 1st February 2013
Cheyenne Woods has learnt to deal with the expectation that comes with her association to uncle Tiger Woods.
Woods, who failed to qualify for the Ladies PGA Tour in 2012, also missed the final cut at the Ladies European Tour's qualifying school in Morocco, late last year.
Organisers on both tours would have loved to have her qualify, just for her family name. However, Woods is determined to create her own identify on the professional circuit.
"He [Tiger] has been a huge influence; having someone that close as a family member and seeing him be so successful is really motivational," said Woods.
"Growing up, the hardest thing was the pressure, the attention and the expectation that was on me because of the name.
"I've learned to deal with it..[but] I would love to make a name for myself. The more I'm out there and the more people get to know me, I think they'll identify me as Cheyenne Woods rather than Tiger Woods' niece,' added Woods.
Woods will get an opportunity to make an impression as early as mid-February, when she debuts at the women's Australian Open, at the Royal Canberra, even though she was only invited by tournament sponsors.
Woods is currently competing at the Ladies Masters on the Gold Coast and she is also expected to take part at the New Zealand Open next week.
