So, according to ESPN, last year, Charlie Woods was finding fairways consistently with a driving distance of about 200 yards. The 12-year-old Woods routinely bombed 200 yards off the tee, which is incredible at this age. But, as Tiger Woods revealed at the 2021 Hero World Championship, Charlie has had a growth spurt, and they had to move one tee back.

Hence, this shows that he has gained distance off the tee and can easily cross maybe 220 yards mark. So don’t be surprised to see Charlie bombing a few drives off the tee and finding incredible distances. Furthermore, last year at the PNC Championship, he hit his 3-wood around 180 yards, and from 100 yards, he mostly used a pitching wedge.
