Cheyenne Woods, niece of 14-time major winner Tiger Woods, secured her first career title on Sunday with a two-shot victory at the Australian Ladies Masters on the Gold Coast.

The 23-year-old carded a four-under-par round of 69 at Royal Pines to finish the tournament at 16 under.

Local amateur Minjee Lee was two shots back in outright second place after she also managed a 69 on Sunday.

The 17-year-old fired three consecutive birdies on the front nine to draw level with Woods, but the American closed with three birdies in her final six holes to seal the win.

South African Stacy Lee Bregman and Swede Camilla Lennarth were two shots behind Lee in a tie for third.

South Korean duo Minsun Kim and So Young Lee were tied for fifth on nine under alongside Swede Caroline Hedwall, who rounded off her tournament with a 66 - the joint best final round.
