Former US president Donald Trump has claimed that he sunk a hole-in-one at Trump International Golf Club.
Despite there being no video recording of the alleged win, Trump stated that his claim was '100% true'.

While a video of the actual hit wasn't available, Trump managed to record the moment he picked up the ball after scoring his allegedly successful shot.
In the video, which was posted by Director of Communications for Save America and Trump, Taylor Budowich, the former president can be heard saying: "Look, it's there. Let's get a picture, you don't see that often."
In a later statement, the former president wrote: "Many people are asking, so I’ll give it to you now, it is 100% true [...] I made a hole-in-one."
He went on to explain how the winning shot was scored.
"It took place [...] on the 7th hole, which was playing 181-yards into a slight wind," Trump wrote. "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."
45: Many people are asking, so I’ll give it to you now, it is 100% true… 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! https://t.co/0Y2mLkW3TN pic.twitter.com/vqPWCbH1eR— Taylor Budowich (@TayFromCA) March 28, 2022
Trump explained he was playing golf with 'legendary golfer' Ernie Els, 'winner of four Majors and approximately 72 other tournaments throughout the world' Gene Sauers, 'winner of the Senior US Open' Ken Duke and Mike Goodes, who he called 'excellent tour players'.
The former president jokingly claimed that his competitors noticed the hole-in-one before he did, 'because their eyes are slightly better, but on that one hole only, their swings weren't'.
"Anyway, there’s a lot of chatter about it, quite exciting, and people everywhere seem to be asking for the facts. Playing with that group of wonderful, talented players was a lot of fun," he reflected.
Trump concluded: "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!"
They posted video of Trump’s “hole-in-one” at his own golf tournament this weekend (that he “won”). Curiously, we don’t get to see the shot. pic.twitter.com/wncJEgAxFI— Ron Filipkowski 🇺🇦 (@RonFilipkowski) March 28, 2022
Aside from this golf game, the former president's trustworthiness has been brought into question following a prosecutors revelation that he thinks Trump is guilty of not just one but 'numerous felony violations'.
Mark Pomerantz, who was leading the criminal investigation into Trump, even posted his letter of resignation onto Twitter, stepping down from his position after efforts to seek an indictment were blocked by Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg.
In his letter, Pomerantz resolved that 'the team that has been investigating Mr Trump harbours no doubt about whether he committed crimes – he did'.
