Donald Trump has claimed he did score a hole in one while playing golf at his Florida club this weekend. Check out a video of the immediate aftermath below.
Tim Swain tweeted the news that Trump had pulled off the incredible feat on Saturday afternoon, but golf fans were immediately suspicious.
The 45th president of the United States posed alongside PGA Tour legends Mike Goodes, Ken Duke, Ernie Els and Gene Sauers for a photo afterwards at West Palm Beach.
Now, Trump has released a lengthy statement to hit back at his critics.
It reads: "Many people are asking, so I’ll give it to you now, it is 100 percent true.
"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.
"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 match was Ernie and me (with no strokes) against Gene, Mike and Ken.
"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!"
Trump's Director of Communications, Taylor Budowich, tweeted a video of Trump collecting his ball from the hole immediately after putting.
The 75-year-old looked pleased with himself and then offered to take a picture to celebrate the rare feat.

It hasn't convinced users online however and they were quick to voice their opinion on the matter.
One commented: "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."
Another said: "Lord give me the confidence of Donald Trump issuing a press release announcing he scored a hole in one playing golf."
While a third put: "I don't believe it. I refuse to believe it."
Trump has been an avid golfer for years and could be seen on the green during his time as president between 2017 and 2021.
Late last year, Trump used his golf skills as a way to slam Joe Biden.
Biden is Trump's successor in the White House and it definitely rubs the former Celebrity Apprentice star the wrong way, to this day.
Trump is an avid sports fan and his opinions on trans athletes have garnered controversy.
He previously claimed he will ban trans women from competing in women's sports if he's re-elected as president.
