Cheyenne Woods Joins the Winner's Circle

Cheyenne Woods won a mini-tour tournament in 2013, but hadn't yet scored a win on one of the top women's tours. Until now! Cheyenne recorded Win No. 1 on an important tour in Australia at the 2014 Volvik RACV Ladies Masters. Woods won by two strokes over 17-year-old amateur Minjee Lee with a final score of 16-under 276.

She earned €37,500, obviously her biggest payday to date since turning pro for the start of 2013. In fact, that's more money than Cheyenne earned in all of her 11 LET starts in 2013, which was €24,000. Woods is a gamer, and she's a worker - that's clear to anyone who takes the time to look at her track record and notices that each time she moves up to a new level of competition, she takes a little adjustment time and then gets better. (The Constructivist and About.com Golf have both pointed this out numerous times.)

Congratulations to Cheyenne. She's not just a "name," she has game, I bet the third time will be the charm for her at LPGA Q-School later this year. Meantime, watch out for more success for her on the LET.
