Former President Donald Trump is claiming that he shot a hole-in-one while golfing with a number of pros at his Florida golf club.

The 75-year-old duffer and potential presidential candidate issued a statement detailing the supposed ace on the 181 yard 7th hole of his Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach.

Trump said he was playing with pro golfers Ernie Els, Gene Sauers, Ken Duke and Mike Goodes when he made the shot.

“Many people are asking, so I’ll give it to you now, it is 100% true,” Trump said of the hole-in-one, without specifying when it occurred.

Trump’s spokesman Taylor Budowich tweeted a video that showed the shot’s aftermath, with the former president retrieving the ball from the cup.

“I hit a 5-iron, which sailed magnificently into a rather strong wind, with approximately 5 feet of cut, whereupon it bounced twice and then went clank, into the hole,” Trump explained.

“These great tour players noticed it before I did because their eyes are slightly better, but on that one hole only, their swings weren’t,” the former president continued.

“I won’t tell you who won because I am a very modest individual, and you will then say I was bragging—and I don’t like people who brag!”

One skeptic wrote, “If Trump is a 2.8 [handicap],” “Queen Elizabeth is a pole vaulter.”
