Cheyenne Woods set to play Dubai Ladies Masters in December

Cheyenne Woods is set to play at this year’s Omega Dubai Ladies Masters at Emirates Golf Club from December 7-10 after spending a second straight season on the LPGA Tour.

Cheyenne feels her experience and skills have been enhanced over that time and believes she can provide stiff competition to a field packed with quality.

It is no secret that Cheyenne is the niece of Tiger Woods, but she’s already carved her own identity on the LPGA with a series of stunning performances, including winning the Ladies European Tour’s Australian Masters in 2014 and securing a full playing status on the ever-demanding LPGA Tour.

Cheyenne has shown many skills, but it’s her power, flair and exuberance which really makes her a fun golfer to watch – although she has her work cut out if she does play the Dubai Ladies Masters as defending champion Shanshan Feng will show no mercy when she plays the event for the second time.

“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.

“It’s a little surreal to know that Tiger was there 12 years ago in the same spot. It’s beautiful. I had seen the photos of Tiger atop the helipad, but for me it was even crazier.

“The ultimate goal is to have a successful career, to be a champion, to be No.1 in the world. No one wants to play to be second.
