President Trump Monday evening said he hit a hole-in-one at his Florida golf course on Saturday while playing with “legendary golfer” Ernie Els and others.
“Look, it’s there,” Trump said as he pointed to the golf ball.
“Let’s get a picture, you don’t see that often,” he added.

“Many people are asking, so I’ll give it to you now, it is 100% true,” Trump said in a statement.
“It took place at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida on the 7th hole, which was playing 181-yards into a slight wind. 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 said.
“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,” he added. “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.”
A little compare and contrast…
