Tiger Woods’ son was beaming with confidence at the PNC Championship, so what club does he use to hit bombs off the tee?
You’ll have seen the recoil videos by now.
And the wave and farewell he gave to one drive as it went sailing down the fairway.
Charlie Woods hits the ball hard and he made this abundantly clear while playing with his father Tiger at the PNC Championship.
He even drove the green on a 321-yard par 4 on Saturday, followed by driving the par-4 7th hole at the Ritz-Carlton on Sunday which is 355 yards.
This is impressive at 14 years of age, but which driver was he splitting the short grass and scaring the pins with?
Much like his 15-time major-winning parent, Charlie was using the TaylorMade Qi10 LS driver which was added to the USGA’s conforming list before the Hero World Challenge.
In the Bahamas, Tiger was spotted using the yet-to-be-released big stick in his first appearance since withdrawing from the Masters in April.

Rory McIlroy and Tommy Fleetwood also used it at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.
“I mean, I drove the ball really good today. Didn’t miss a fairway, and still managed to shoot 8-under. We just suck at putting,” Charlie said after the Woods duo carded an eight-under 64 in the event’s scramble format on day one.
“That sums it up right there,” Tiger added.
“Knocking more rust off my game,” he said of his own game. “I got better each and every day at the Hero and I’ve got better each and every day I’ve played out here.
“Granted it’s only been a couple days but still it’s gotten better.”
What about the Charlie Woods putter?
Woods the younger was evidently unhappy with their team’s display on the greens, so do they also share the same flat stick?
As per PGATour.com, Tiger uses the classic Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS blade and has done for all but one of his major championship victories.
Charlie uses a different putter – the Scotty Cameron Phantom X 5.5 which has a much bigger head than his father’s.
The pair ended up in a tie for fifth, six shots behind Team Langer.
