Cheyenne scored a final round of -4 under par 69 to win her first professional tour title at -16 under par, a two shot victory, Uncle Tiger would be proud. She said she had just played steady golf; “I played really steady, I didn’t panic. I’m just really excited for whatever this leads me to. It just feels really great knowing my game is there, and I can play four solid rounds. This is a huge accomplishment for me.”   “The Ladies European Tour has been great to be able to play this last year, I’ve been able to see all of these great players, play with Solheim Cup members, so I’ve learned so much from all of these girls and to be able to come out here and actually compete with them and come out on top was huge for me.” “All off season I was just getting ready with my coach back home and he told me he thinks that this is my year, my time to finally get a win and to have it this early in the season is exciting, especially with European Tour and then here in Australia. I’m just really proud with how I played this week and followed through all four days and finished strong.” 17 year-old Australian teenage sensation and amateur, Minjee Lee claimed second place, she also had a last round of -4 under par 69. Recording a total for the tournament of -14 under par. She said she was hoping for more good things to come  "I haven’t really been in this situation before so I am happy with how I played today and hopefully there are many more to come.” Minjee Lee / getty Third place was shared between Camilla Lennarth and  Stacy Lee Bregman, both ladies finished with total score of -12 under par. I think it is really great that new players win tournaments, it is getting harder and harder for the traditional favorites to win tournaments these days. Congratulations Cheyenne, don't forget to give Uncle Tiger some tips on winning next time you guys talk.
