Nike athlete Cheyenne Woods held steady to capture her first victory on a major professional Tour at the Volvic RACV Ladies Masters in Australia, sanctioned by the Ladies European and Australian Tours.

Cheyenne, who is the niece of TigerWoods and joined Nike’s athlete roster in 2012, birdied the final hole to win by two strokes.

“I played really steady,” she said. “I didn’t panic. I’m just really excited for whatever this leads me to.”

Highlighting her bag of Nike equipment was the new Nike Covert 2.0 driver, which became available to consumers just 10 days ago, and the new Nike RZN Black golf ball that will launch on March 1. Woods is the second Nike athlete following Rory McIlroy to win with this new driver/ball combination featuring Nike Flybrace and Speedlock technology. The marriage of these two technologies has resulted in faster ball speed, forgiving distance and more stability in the wind.

In addition to Woods’ Nike equipment, she wore apparel from Nike’s Tour Performance line and the Nike Lunar Embellish shoe.
