Tiger’s niece wins AA Women’s title
Tiger Woods didn’t play any competitive golf last week, but it brought him one of his brightest moments this month.
Tiger Woods didn’t play any competitive golf this weekend past, but it brought him one of his brightest moments this month.
His niece, Cheyenne Woods, won the individual title in helping Wake Forest finish fourth at the AA Women’s Golf Championship on Sunday and it gave a buoyant Woods the chance to boast on Twitter: “My niece, Cheyenne, just won the ACC golf title by 7 shots!
“That’s awesome, I’m so proud of her.”
Cheyenne, who is the daughter of Tiger’s half-brother, Earl Woods Jnr, shot a winning 5-under 208 total for the 54 hole event and, in doing so, became Wake Forest’s third successive winner.
“I really felt confident this week,” she told wakeforestsports.com after claiming her first ACC title.
“I was hitting the ball well in practice coming in and especially today, I was able to hit the ball where I wanted.
“That was key because these greens are really slick and you needed to hit the ball in the right spots.”
