Cheyenne Nicole Woods (born July 25, 1990) is an American professional golfer.

Woods was born in Phoenix, Arizona. She is a daughter of Earl Dennison Woods Jr., who is golfer Tiger Woods's half-brother. Her grandfather, Earl Woods, (Tiger's father) was her first coach.[1] She played for the Xavier College Preparatory golf team and won back-to-back Arizona 5A State Championships in 2006 and 2007.[1] She graduated from Wake Forest University (2012) where she played golf for the Demon Deacons. She has won more than 30 amateur tournaments.[2]

In 2009, she received a sponsor's exemption to play in an LPGA tournament, the Wegmans LPGA. She missed the cut by four strokes.[3]

In April 2011, she won the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) championship.[4]

In 2012, Woods turned professional after graduating from Wake Forest.[5] She qualified for the 2012 U.S. Women's Open by finishing as co-medalist at her qualifier and made her professional debut at the 2012 LPGA Championship.[5] She had her first professional win on the SunCoast Ladies Series in late August 2012.[6][7]
