Cheyenne Woods, 18, ranked the 100th best female golfer by Golfweek magazine, recently opened up to NPR about following in her uncle’s footsteps and also setting herself apart from his image.
“I try to set myself aside from the Tiger Woods name and just make a name for myself,” she said. “So I guess that’s my goal now.”
Young Woods plays for Wake Forest University’s Demon Deacons, ranked 12th in the NCAA. Her uncle, ranked the best golfer in the world, prepares to compete in his 15th Masters Tournament, and seeks to win his fifth green Masters jacket.
