Tiger's niece wins Australian Masters

Tiger Woods can no longer claim to be the only member of his family to have won an Australian Masters golfing crown.

Woods' 23-year-old niece Cheyenne stepped out of the considerable shadow of her superstar uncle on Sunday to claim the biggest win of her two-year professional career.

Cheyenne Woods carded a 16 under par total for her two-shot victory at the Australian Ladies Masters on the Gold Coast.

She earned a two-year exemption for the European Tour, and victory in this week's Australian Open would also earn her a two-year exemption on the US women's circuit, the LPGA tour.
