Cheyenne Woods to play on US LPGA

Cheyenne Woods, the 21-year-old niece of 14-time major winner Tiger Woods, has signed with her uncle's agent and is set to start playing in LPGA golf Tour events this year.

Cheyenne Woods says she plans to play in LPGA events this year on sponsor exemptions and seek a full-time spot on the women's golf tour through the qualifying tournaments.

Woods posted the lowest scoring average at Wake Forest University and has graduated with a communications degree.

The daughter of Tiger Woods' half-brother Earl missed the cut at the 2009 Wegmans LPGA while playing on a sponsor's exemption.
