WINSTON SALEM, North Carolina (April 29, 2009) -- The Wake Forest women's golf team recently won the ACC women's golf championship. Tiger Woods' niece (a freshman) is a member of the team, but she's not the top ranked player. And she's certainly not the school's most famous golf alum - Arnold Palmer has that honor.

But in a recent NBC Nightly News segment, you can see that, beyond having Tiger Woods as an uncle and Earl Woods as a grandfather, Ms. Woods appears to have the tools and potential to succeed and handle the media attention and pressure.

To those of you who despise the hype placed on players like Michelle Wie, Cheyenne Woods, Danny Lee, or any other young player who is given sponsors exemptions, big-money endorsements, and many other advantages - keep in mind that the tournaments and other players can potentially benefit from this attention.

The LPGA Tour -- not that I expect Cheyenne Woods would get caught up in taking a bunch of sponsors exemptions -- can use every boost it can get in this economy.

I do find it interesting, however, that the Celebrity Players Tour is out of business. Evidently, people don't want to see celebrities (in many cases former) play against each other.

Enjoy the video.
