Callaway® Apparel congratulates Cheyenne Knight on capturing her first LPGA tour win with a two-shot victory in her home state of Texas in the Volunteers of America Classic. The rookie not only earned her first win on Sunday, she has earned herself a two-year exemption on tour as well as a spot in the CME Globe Tour Championship next month.
“We are so proud to have Cheyenne represent Callaway Apparel every week on Tour. While closing with a bogey-free 66, Cheyenne not only looked great in her Callaway Apparel, the enhanced technical features helped her stay cool and calm under the pressure of trying to win her first LPGA Tour event,” stated Bjoern Kreutzer, Sr. Manager, Sports Marketing for Callaway Apparel.
“It’s so incredible. I can’t put it into words,” a teary-eyed Knight said after dedicating the win to her late brother. “I think I had a second caddie. I know he’s watching in heaven, and he’s so proud of me. This is for Brandon.”
