Donald Trump Issues Official Press Statement To Let Everyone Know About His Hole-In-One
| Last updated
Donald Trump has out-Trumped himself by issuing an official press statement to let everyone know about his hole-in-one.
With a lifetime ban to his previously beloved Twitter, and without a platform to bestow everyone with the wonderful news of his shot, the former president has released a statement directly from his office - and he hasn’t left out any detail.
This incredible golf shot happened on Trump's own course out in West Palm Beach, Florida.
His press statement really made you feel like you were there with him.
Donald Trump’s handlers issued a video and press release today, claiming he hit a 180 yard hole in one at golf. Neither contained any evidence that it happened. The video shows him to be so infirm, he could not have hit a 180 yard shot with any precision. This is so pathetic.— Palmer Report (@PalmerReport) March 29, 2022
It said: “Many people are asking, so I'll give it to you now: it is 100% true.
“While playing with the 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, both excellent tour players, I made a hole-in-one.”
Trump then went on to explain in great detail how the hole-in-one came to be.
He continued: “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 five feet of cut, whereupon it bounced twice and the went clank into the hole.”
There was even apparent video proof.
A clip was posted to Twitter by his Director of Communications, Taylor Budowich.
In the footage, you can see the former President strutting his stuff as he collects the ball from the hole, before a round of congratulations from his aforementioned golf buddies. Really wholesome stuff.
Sadly we don't actually get to see Trump hitting the ball from the tee.

According to Trump, there was plenty of appetite for the story online as he goes on to say that 'there's a lot of chatter about' his hole-in-one and that it's 'quite exciting'.
"People everywhere seem to be asking for the facts. Playing with that group of wonderful, talented players, was a lot of fun," he wrote.
But what the world was really wanting to know was who ended up taking home the victory.
However, Trump was a bit more scarce on those details - without being scarce at all.
He said: “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.”
Of course, you don’t Donald.
Throughout his presidency it became well-known that Trump was an avid golfer; so much so that his critics suggested e spent more time on the green than in the White House.
