Cheyenne Woods Qualifies for U.S. Women’s Open Field

It has not been ALL bad for Tiger Woods and his family this week. His niece, Cheyenne, qualified to play the U.S. Women’s Open this July.

 
The 26-year-old Woods is currently in her second year as a full-time LPGA member, and is No. 248 in the Rolex Rankings (the women’s version of the OWGR). It will be her first time in the field since 2014.

Bullets

  • Cheyenne Woods took co-medalist honors on Tuesday at a sectional qualifier in California, shooting 71-70.
  • Woods has twice played the U.S. Open, missing the cut in both attempts.
  • The U.S. Women’s Open will be head from July 13-16 at Trump National (New Jersey)
  • Woods has made just four cuts in eight events on the LPGA Tour this season, with a high finish of T52.
  • She is a daughter of Susan and Earl Dennison Woods Jr., who is Tiger Woods’s half-brother.
  • Her paternal grandfather, Earl Woods (Tiger’s father), was her first coach.
