My son is that height, age and a couple pounds heavier.  He hits his driver between 150 - 170.  Occasionally he really gets into one and it goes close to 180.

It really depends on how fast you swing, and how solidly you contact the ball.

I won the local drive, chip and putt when I was 9 and I remember the winning "blast" being 178 yards, lol. But, kids are so different at that age I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Don't worry about his distance!

When I was younger I was the shortest junior at my club, but really developed a short game. Guess what.....now I'm the longest junior at my club, and still have the short game to boot! = I kick everyone else's a**!

Learn how to hit it straight before you concentrate on hitting it far, because now is the time for that. I started playing when I was 14 and by that time I was already faily strong and I only wanted to hit it farther and farther and I wouldn't care where it went. Sure it was fun, but now 5 years later I'm fighting some nasty habits with the driver, not good.

That goes against the grain of a ton of teacher's/players thoughts on how to start. I have read from alot that after getting proper fundamentals, you should try and hit it as far as you can starting out, without taking it to the extreme of losing your balance. Now that you need to hit it far to compete on tour/college/junior its alot easier to learn how to hit it far  from age 10-13, then from age 16-18

Interesting, I did not know that. Maybe I should start up my own teaching school with my philosophy and see how it works :rolleyes:
