It’s been a rough week for the Woods family, but Tiger Woods’ niece, Cheyenne Woods, can at least say she provided some positive news.
Woods, who is playing her second season on the LPGA, was a co-medalist at Industry Hills Golf Club in California which allowed her to qualify for the 2017 U.S. Women’s Open. Woods previously played in the Women’s U.S. Open in 2012 and 2014, but failed to make the cut both times.
This year, she’ll have her chance to make a run at the title when the tournament takes place July 13-16 at Trump National in Bedminster, New Jersey.
Cheyenne Woods’ first coach was Earl Woods, the father of Tiger.
The 26-year-old won back-to-back state championships while at Xavier College Preparatory in Arizona.
Will she finally break through in a major tournament after winning more than 30 as an amateur? We’ll find out in July and a strong performance would be a great birthday present with her big day coming just over a week after the tournament on July 25.
