DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Feb. 10 (UPI) -- Cheyenne Woods collected her second professional title at the Australian Ladies Masters and jumps 209 places in the world women's golf rankings.

Woods, 23, niece of top-rated men's golfer Tiger Woods, is ranked 154th after winning the tournament Sunday by two strokes with a 72-hole total of 16-under 276.

Cheyenne Woods previously won the 2012 SunCoast Ladies Series LPGA International.

The Australian Ladies Masters is a main event on the Australian Ladies Professional Golf Tour and co-sanctioned by the Ladies European Tour.

Those two tours and the LPGA sanction this week's ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open, which begins Thursday in Victoria.

No. 1-ranked Inbee Park isn't in the field, opening a chance for No. 2 Suzann Pettersen and third-ranked Stacy Lewis to cut into her lead. Also on hand this week is fourth-ranked Lydia Ko, who finished third, behind Jiyai Shin and Yani Tseng when Ko was competing as an amateur.
