Another Tiger Woods: Nope, not Tiger's new daughter but his niece. Meet Cheyenne Woods, 16, 3.3 GPA, 245-yard average drive.

I'm sorry but it should say a female Tiger Woods not another Tiger Woods. I believe it will be a while before we see "another" Tiger Woods.

No pressure here!

Should we call her "Kitten" Woods, or would that be sexist and demeaning? :) That's gotta be tough, hope the best skill she has is coping with the fact that as a golfer she'll always be in the shadow of her uncle; from the sound of it she's pretty good, but not likely to be a top-notch female golfer. Also, nice editing on the story there: the title/text says she's 16, but the picture caption says she's 17. Which is it?

Speaking of nice editing, thanks to the Pantheon for the quick fix on my initial post.

I think Kitten Woods is a sexy name, FWIW. Which probably means it's sexist and demeaning. ;) I've heard a lot about Cheyenne recently. I'd guess she'll have her choice of golf programs.

For every nine tongues planted in a cheek, there's one tongue planted in a cheek of another sort. Just sayin'.

It doesn't seem that Cheyenne needs any type of gimmick to have people realize that she's related to Tiger. She resembles Tiger down to the smile with white, sparkling teeth. Her game should speak for itself and given time and maturity, she'll be a pretty decent playe and with her genes, I wouldn't doubt if she won a few majors in the LPGA, just wait a few years.

Well, let's see. She's 16. To be another Tiger Woods, she will have won at least 2 and likely 3 U. S. Junior Amateur trophies by now. Has she even won one? The only resemblance seems to be the last name of Woods.
