Day 232: Looks Like Tiger's Got Some Competition

Remember Tiger Woods in 1999? He had been on the PGA Tour just three years and at the ripe old age of 24, he had already won two (of his 14) majors—the Masters and the PGA Championship. He had yet to meet or marry Elin Nordegren and yet to meet that fateful fire hydrant in the wee hours of Black Friday in 2009. And yet to admit his infidelity with the skank patrol. Tiger was young and new and fresh and he brought to golf a whole new pack of fans.

In 1999, Tiger performed a now famous juggling act with a wedge and a golf ball for a Nike commercial. Remember? If not, here you go... it's just as impressive now, as it was 14 years ago.

Well, looks like Tiger has got some competition in the world of golf ball on golf club juggling. His niece Cheyenne Woods, a 23-year-old two-time All-American at Wake Forest, has recreated his famous routine in a video of her own. She's updated the music bed, but other than that change, it appears that golf ball on golf club juggling runs in the family. Cheyenne is Tiger's half brother's daughter and a budding golf professional.

If you missed it, check it out on Instagram here. She pretty much nails it.
