Howard Stern's 300 Yard Drive?!

Howard Stern is known as the original "shock jock". Now he is shocking the golf world with wild claims of his golf prowess. He recently attended Jimmy Kimmel's wedding at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa in California where he visited the driving range to kill some time while his room was being prepared. This is the first time he ever swung a golf club and yet he claims to have driven the ball 300 yards multiple times. As proof, he posted this video of his golf swing:

To all the experienced golfers out there, does it look like Howard can possibly drive it 300 yards? I mean it looks good considering he's never hit a golf ball before, but 300 yards?

Howard is also making an impact on the PGA Tour. He's partly the reason why there's ridiculous people yelling stupid stuff during PGA broadcasts now. Yelling "Bababooey" is the calling card of Stern fans and they have been showing up at PGA Tour events with more frequency since Stern has started replaying them on his show. I think all golf fans are now fed up with these antics, but can you imagine how the pros must feel? Ian Poulter is one pro who is clearly annoyed:
No matter what you think of Poulter, I think we can all support him in this regard.
