It wasn't the 300 yard part that automatically made me think NO, it was the 99% part (combined with the 20+ HC).
As far as 280 for the average pro- 280 ranks 152 out of 185 PGA Tour pros with enough rounds to qualify. The shortest is Mike Weir with a 270.5 average. This is based on 2 measured tee shots per round and may include holes they did not hit driver, hit a tree, into the wind, landed in the rough and got no roll, mishit the shot, etc. http://www.pgatour.com/stats/stat.101.html
If you look at all drives with shot link, the average is lower because it includes more holes where they don't actually hit driver. If you just look at longest drives (like most amateurs remember) there are 999 drives 346+ yards in 2013 with Phil having the longest this year at 450 yards.
