Another Woods has signed with agent Mark Steinberg: Cheyenne Woods, the 21-year-old niece of Tiger Woods.

“I am really looking forward to pursuing my goals and dreams to compete on the highest level,” Cheyenne Woods said in a statement on Monday. “As I begin my professional career, I am confident and excited about working with Excel as they help shape my future, both personally and professionally.”

Woods starred at Wake Forest, where she set a school record for lowest career scoring average and was a two-time All-American and three-time All-Atlantic Coast Conference team member. She also captured the 2011 ACC title.

The daughter of Earl Dennison Woods Jr., the half-brother of Tiger Woods, Cheyenne Woods has won more than 30 amateur tournaments. In 2009, she received a sponsor’s exemption into the Wegmans LPGA, where she missed the cut by four strokes.

Steinberg, who has represented Tiger Woods since 1998 and left IMG for Excel in May 2011, said of Woods’ niece, “We are excited about the opportunity to represent Cheyenne. She had an outstanding career at Wake Forest and has the chance to be a major star on the women’s golf scene.”

Woods plans to play on sponsor exemptions through the rest of the LPGA season before pursuing her card through q-school later this year.
