As she's shown us on Instagram, Cheyenne Woods has been working hard on her game to prepare for LPGA Q-School finals:
The final stage of 2014 LPGA Q-School begins exactly two weeks from the date of this post, and Woods is one of 156 golfers trying to earn a place on the LPGA Tour for 2015. Over the next two weeks, leading up to Round 1, we'll take a look at some of those aspirants.
How did Cheyenne get to the final stage? She was exempt from Stage I, but did have to play Stage II. And at Stage II Woods shot 74-72-70-70 for a total of 2-under-par 286, tied for 12th place and easily good enough to advance.
Cheyenne started 2014 with a bang, winning the Volvik RACV Ladies Masters, a Ladies European Tour event, in February. And just a week ago she had a strong showing at the Arizona Women's Open, which had the best Cactus Tour field of the year.
In-between, Woods played mostly on the Symetra Tour, entering 14 tournaments. Her best finish was fifth at the Decatur-Forsyth Classic in June; her second-best showing was 12th place at the season-ending Symetra Tour Championship in September.
Cheyenne was 34th on the Symetra Tour scoring list, but only 52nd on the money list. Her tee-to-green game was strong: She was 11th in fairways hit, 18th in GIR, but putting let her down. She wound up ninth on the Rookie of the Year ranking.
