Cheyenne Woods - the niece of you-know-who - has started her collegiate golf career at Wake Forest University. She did pretty well in her first tournament, too, making the playing roster as a freshman and contributing some solid scores. Wake Forest finished ninth in the 2008 Fall Season opener, the NCAA Preview, and Cheyenne's 74 lead the team in the final round. Woods posted 75-76-74--225 and finished just outside the Top 25.
The Associated Press released an article about Cheyenne's college debut today. She'll always draw attention because of who her uncle is, and the fact that she is pretty good at the same sport in which he is the all-time best. But here's hoping Cheyenne isn't overburdened with outsized expectations, that she is allowed to grow and develop as a golfer and a person at her own pace, and to her own drummer. (Her nose and belly-button piercings might be indicators she's doing a good job of that already.)
