She developed a style she describes as “aggressively, steady, calm” by watching pro golf as a girl. Instead of patterning her game after any one particular player, she chose attributes from a variety of players into “kind of a mix of a lot of stuff.”

That includes Tiger, though their facial features look a lot more alike than their swings do. Cheyenne says her driver more closely resembles that of smooth-swinging Ernie Els than that of her heavy-hitting uncle.

She says she’s planning to make the 90-mile trip to Quail Hollow in Charlotte this weekend for the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship _ though her uncle won’t be on the course there. His second-round 73 left him at even-par 144, and he missed the cut for the eighth time in his career. That’s after his worst performance as a pro came last month at the Masters.

Cheyenne says Tiger has been nothing but supportive of her through the years.

“He’s rooting me on, excited for my professional career, also,” Cheyenne said.
