Who is Cheyenne Knight?

Cheyenne Knight is a two-time winner on the LPGA Tour and a member of Team USA’s Solheim Cup team.

Knight was born in Texas in 1997, and soon got into the game thanks to her father Gene. The pair continue to play golf together whenever they get the chance. She went on to play collegiate golf at the University of Alabama, and was a three-time All-American and the 2017 SEC Player of the Year. 

Her first LPGA Tour victory came in 2019, with Knight winning by two shots from Brittany Altomare and Jaye Marie Green at the Volunteers of America Classic. She had to wait four years for her next title, which came alongside Elizabeth Szokol at the Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational.

Thanks to her performances over the two years prior, Team USA captain Stacy Lewis selected Knight as one of her captain’s picks for the Solheim Cup in Andalucia. It was Knight’s debut in the competition.

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
