Cheyenne Woods Stuns Field and Wins LET Tournament

 


Cheyenne Woods has shocked the golf world by winning the Volvic RACV Ladies Masters. The tournament which took place in Queensland Australia was the second tournament on the Ladies European Tour of the 2014 season.

Woods, the 23 year old niece of Tiger Woods, finished with a 4 under par 68 to win by 2 strokes.

This was the first win for Cheyenne on a major tour.

This was not a weak field as it included such players as Yani Tseng, Jessica Korda, and Caroline Hedwall.

Woods had tried to qualify for the LPGA this past December but was unsuccessful.
She will be teeing it up as a sponsor exemption this coming week, when the LPGA plays in Australia.

  2. Great to see her win. I'm guessing that this will give her full status on the LET?

  3. I think her victory automatically qualified her for this week's Australian Women's Open. She has a sponsor's exemption into it also. I wonder if it means she won't have to use up a sponsor's exemption now in an official LPGA event. Aren't players restricted to 6 sponsor's exemptions over the course of a season?

    1. Not sure if she auto qualifies now, but we will have that answer tomorrow when they fill in those final 13 spots that are still held open. I would imagine that with this victory, Cheyenne and Ariya Jutanugarn are going to have no problem filling their 6 exemptions.

    2. Cheyenne got into 6 last year without a victory. They like having her in all they can. I think she might have qualified for the Evian and the British Open also with her victory (as an official LET event winner). Not sure about that.

  4. A surprise indeed. Congratulations, Cheyenne! Looks like 2014 is off to an interesting start.
