Cheyenne Woods, Niece of Tiger Woods, Runs Away With ACC Golf Title

At least one member of the Woods family has been able to take home titles on the links.

Cheyenne Woods, niece of Tiger Woods, won the ACC Golf Championship on Sunday, running away from the field with a seven-shot victory at minus-five.

The Wake Forest junior is the third-consecutive Demon Deacon to win the crown.

"Today, I really felt confident all day and knew I could hit the shots that I wanted to," Woods told ACC.com, according to ESPN. "That was important on this course because the greens are so slick that you have to land the ball in the right spots."

Tiger congratulated his niece via Twitter:

"My niece, Cheyenne, just won the ACC golf title by 7 shots! That's awesome, I'm so proud of her."

Cheyenne is the daughter of Tiger's half brother, Earl Jr.

Tiger has not hoisted a championship trophy since 2009, at the BMW Championship.

Sometimes, after-quarter coach interviews get a little awkward.
