Cheyenne’s last name should appear familiar.  Cheyenne’s uncle is Tiger, who is also a client of Mark Steinberg at Excel Sports Management.  Steinberg had represented Tiger Woods as Director of Global Golf Business at IMG Worldwide prior to teaming up with Excel Sports Management roughly a year ago.  When Steinberg made the switch, Tiger came with him.

Cheyenne had a remarkable career at Wake Forest University, where she broke the school’s scoring average and was named an All-American and three-time All-ACC team member.  She also won the 2011 ACC Championship by seven shots.
