According to the post, the person trolled Woods’ husband and center fielder for the New York Yankees of MLB, Hicks. Although the sports entities always have to face such situations, what made Woods mad was that the troller used Hick’s photo with his newborn. 

Notably, Cheyenne Woods is also a sports entity. She is a professional golfer. The two-time High School State Champion in Arizona turned professional in 2014 and joined the Tour in 2015. She won her first and only championship at the 2014 Volvik RACV Ladies Masters.

Woods and Hicks got married this year in February, and they welcomed their firstborn on April 26th. The golfer has always tried to share all her happiness through social media. 

Are Tiger Woods and Cheyenne Woods close? 

Cheyenne Woods was born on July 25th to Susan and Earl Dennison Woods jr. in 1990. As the name suggests, Earl Dennison Woods jr. is Earl Woods’ son, making Tiger Woods his half-brother. 

Although he is only her half-uncle, Cheyenne and the PGA Tour legend are close. In an interview with Golfing Indian, she had explained that she and the 15-time major winner play together whenever possible. 

Interestingly, Cheyenne Woods had once made her uncle surprised during a press conference in 2013.

“The U.S. Open is usually one of the most grueling weeks of golf,” she had asked Woods. “So what would you do off the course in order to be at ease and relax?”

Notably, the LPGA golfer then worked as a writer for a golf website.

Indeed, the golf legend had taken aback as he let out a chuckle followed by a “didn’t expect that” before answering her question.
