After spending a second straight season on the LPGA Tour, Cheyenne Woods is hopeful her experience and enhanced skills will provide a strong challenge to the quality field that is expected to compete at this year’s Omega Dubai Ladies Masters at Emirates Golf Club from December 7-10.
With sporting prowess running in the family, the niece of Tiger Woods has already carved her own identity beyond sharing a celebrated surname by winning the Ladies European Tour’s Australian Masters in 2014 and securing full playing status on the demanding LPGA Tour.
Known for her power, flair and exuberance, Cheyenne is sure to add to the excitement when she joins a field headlined by defending champion Shanshan Feng in her second appearance in the event.
“I feel I have progressed, and my game is much better after playing on the LPGA Tour,” said the 26-year-old, who finished tied 24th on five-under par in her first Omega Dubai Ladies Masters in 2014.
“I love Dubai, I love the tournament and it was great fun playing two years ago. Dubai is exactly like what I had imagined – everything is so beautiful,” said the American, whose second season on the LPGA Tour this year is highlighted by a tied sixth finish at the Cambia Portland Classic in June.
During her last trip to Dubai, Cheyenne followed in the footsteps of her famous uncle when she recreated the iconic images of hitting golf shots from the helipad at the top of the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah.
