Cheyenne Woods will make her LPGA season debut at the Coates Golf Championship after being granted one of two sponsor exemptions for the LPGA season opener, the LPGA announced Tuesday.

Tiger Woods’ niece earned her tour card last month at the LPGA Q-school after playing the Symetra Tour last season. She won the Australian Ladies Masters last year on the Ladies European Tour.

Alexandria Jacobsen (née Buelow), a Stetson graduate who has played 48 Symetra Tour events to date, is the other exemption.
