Cheyenne Woods Gets First College Win

Congratulations to Cheyenne Woods for winning for the first time at the collegiate level. Cheyenne won The Bryan National Collegiate Tournament on Sunday (hat tip: About.com Golf). She's a sophomore at Wake Forest.

The last few months can't have been easy for Cheyenne. Not as difficult as for her famous uncle, of course; still, people can be unkind, and it's easy to imagine that Cheyenne has taken some ribbing or heard whispers.

Yet, not only has she continued to improve her play, but now she's a winner at the college level. I have to admit: I didn't think Woods had this kind of potential when she left high school. She had a great high school career (Arizona state championships), no doubt, but wasn't considered among the best junior golfers in the country. But with hard work and dedication come rewards, and now I think it's safe to start thinking that Cheyenne - should her career progress continue - has a future in professional golf.

Should we say that Jeongeun Lee possesses quite a bit of ... six appeal? If you follow women's golf and, specifically, check the scores of tournaments, then you have noticed something odd. In scores, Korean golfer Jeongeun Lee's name often includes the number "6." It appears in the scores as Jeongeun Lee6, for example. Or, sometimes, as Jeongeun6 Lee.

First, let's clear up why we've listed two names for this golfer in the headline. When she first came on the scene, she (and everyone else) spelled her name "Hyeonjoo Ryu." But recently on social media, she started spelling it "Hyunju Yoo." And we figure she knows better than anyone how to translate the Korean spelling of her name into an English spelling.
