Tiger's niece signs with same agency
Cheyenne Woods is following in her uncle's footsteps -- at least for management.
Excel Sports Management says the niece of Tiger Woods has joined Mark Steinberg's stable of clients. Steinberg has represented Woods since 1999, first at IMG before joining Excel last summer.
Cheyenne Woods was an All-American at Wake Forest, where she set the lowest scoring average in school history and won the ACC championship by seven shots. She graduated with a degree in communications.
"She had an outstanding career at Wake Forest and has the chance to be a major star on the women's golf scene," Steinberg said.
She will seek sponsor exemptions this summer and go to LPGA qualifying school later this year.
