Cheyenne Woods was playing in an event at Wilshire Country Club in Los Angeles earlier this year when she was introduced to a family who had come to watch her. They had never played golf, or even seen the sport live, but Woods had captured their imaginations. "It was a black family who'd come out; a dad, his two daughters and his son," Woods tells CNN Sport. "They'd never played golf, but they'd heard about me and came out and followed my entire round. That kind of stuff gives me goosebumps."
