Being the son of the G.O.A.T., Tiger Woods doesn’t make Charlie Woods a good golfer. However, his game does. Since 2020, he has shown how he gets improved year by year in the golf world through the Tour Championship unofficial event, the PNC Championship. From making his first eagle to helping his father make 11 birdies in a row, the young Woods has come a long way with his game. 

Everyone in the golf world knows the 13-year-old is a good golfer. His viral stable-looking swing video from the Notah Bogey Jr. Golf Championship and Tiger’s recent revelation, according to golfmonthly.com, about Charlie finally outdriving him made the golf fans believe that he is his father’s son. However, little is known about his handicap score and the other technical aspects of his game.

Being a Scratch golfer means the golfer is one of the best in the business. If the player has a handicap index of zero, he or she is considered a Scratch golfer. Notably, a handicap is a score to measure how good of a golfer he is. And since he is a junior-level golfer, like most of the others, the handicap score of Charlie Axel Woods is unknown.

However, according to golftips.golfweek.usatoday.com, if a player doesn’t carry a handicap index but still has a general score close to or around par, he or she would be called a Scratch golfer. According to his Junior Golf National Championship profile, the 13-year-old has an average score of 72.

Who is the next Tiger Woods? The question has been lingering in the fans’ minds since he was in the 2021 car crash. Since his last PNC Championship performance, many started to believe that Charlie Woods could become the next best of the era.  

His profile shows that within three years of his golfing experience, the 13-year-old has really improved his game. He currently ranks at 4183 on the Junior Golf Scorecard. The 15-time major champion had won many events when he was an amateur. On the contrary, according to bluegolf.com, Charlie has won only once.
