Cheyenne Woods might never be able to live up to the golf career laid out by her Uncle Tiger, but in terms of recreating his famous demonstrations, the 24-year-old is well on her way.

On Thursday, just days after earning her LPGA card, she climbed to the top of the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah Hotel In Dubai and replicated the memorable photo of Tiger Woods in the same spot 10 years earlier

“It’s even more unbelievable than I thought it would be,” she said. “You hear stories and see pictures online and once you’re here in person, it’s amazing: the views, the city and how high we are."

“It’s a little surreal to know that Tiger was here 10 years ago in the same spot,” she continued. “It’s beautiful. I have seen the photos of Tiger hitting the ball. For me it was even crazier.”

This isn’t Cheyenne’s first stab at copying her uncle, though. Earlier this summer, she posted to her Instagram a similar video to the famous Nike commercial featuring Tiger juggling a golf ball before launching it out to the range.

It's clear she's got the imitation game down. We'll have to wait and see if she can win tournaments like Uncle Tiger used to.
