Cheyenne Woods captured her first win as a professional on Thursday afternoon, firing a 1-under 69 to cruise to a four-shot victory in a Suncoast Ladies Series event at LPGA International in Daytona Beach, Fla.

Woods took a five-shot lead into the final round of the 54-hole event, posting rounds of 67-68 to take control of the tournament.

The Wake Forest product finished in second place last week at another Suncoast event. Woods finished T-50 at the Evian Masters earlier this summer, while missing the cut at the U.S. Women's Open.

Uncle Tiger Woods took to Twitter to congratulate his niece: "Congrats to my niece Cheyenne on winning her first professional event on SunCoast Ladies Series Tour! Won by 4, very proud."
