Sirius radio host and "America's Got Talent" judge Howard Stern is a man capable of saying a lot. And he apparently claims to have hit a golf ball 300 yards while attending comedian Jimmy Kimmel's wedding last weekend at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa.
The YouTube clip above, posted by HowardSternOnline Monday, shows the self-dubbed King of All Media taking a whack at a ball and admiring the outcome. "I'm right up by the flag," he says. "That's a very good shot."
But, according to outlets, that particular drive wasn't the Tiger-esque swat he claims to have delivered. And his form shows that he might be exaggerating his distance off the tee under any circumstances.
"If that swing is any indication of what his game is like, then maybe he meant 300 feet," CBS Sports snarked.
USA Today wrote: "Can Howard really hit the ball 300 yards? Judging by that video: Absolutely. It would just take him three shots to do it."
And one last swipe, from Devil Ball Golf: "Love you, Howie, but with that swing, the only way you're driving a ball 300 yards is in a cart."
"It ain't that hard," says @HowardStern on golf, after claiming to drive the ball over 300 yards (with accuracy) at Jimmy Kimmel's wedding.
