There is something in golf called "learning how to win." It's a weird thing to think about because when you're as talented as Cheyenne Woods, best known for her famous uncle, you think winning is just something that comes along easy, but learning how to actually close out a golf tournament and make the swings and hit the putts that you must execute to be the best that week is a tough skill to master.
Tiger Woods did it from inception, but a lot of people take time to learn the art of winning. Amateurs like Michelle Wie and Ryan Moore were phenomenal talents, but learning how to win on the professional stage took time, so it's nice to see someone like Cheyenne Woods learning from the ground level up and showing it pays off.
This week, the 22-year-old won her first professional event at a SunCoast Ladies Series event, firing rounds of 67-68-69 to beat the field by four shots. Cheyenne won just $3,000, but it isn't the money that she gained from such an accomplishment, it's simply being able to put yourself in the moment and pull out a victory.
Wins like this are what build you up to being able to compete, and conquer, the LPGA. It's an incredibly tough thing to win at the highest level, but Cheyenne seems to be making the right moves and playing in the right events to get herself ready for the big stage.
And hey, anything to get Tiger to send out a tweet, right?
