On Monday night, former President Donald Trump released an official statement regarding his latest round of golf. He announced that he had a hole-in-one at his golf course.

"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 said in an official statement. "It took place a 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 his company noticed he had a hole-in-one before he did because their eyes are "slightly better."

The reactions to this statement are all over the place. Some people find this story to be hilarious, while others aren't sure if it's legit.

"Well I hope he finally hit a hole in one," one person replied. "Lord knows the man spent 2016-2000 doing nothing but practice."

"It's a slight wind and then in the next sentence it's a strong wind," another one said. "Come on, man. Real or not, you wait a few months before it becomes a strong wind in the story. Not one sentence."

"This is absolute gold," one fan said.

Unfortunately, a video of Trump's actual tee shot on the 7th hole isn't available.

Do you believe Trump actually had a hole-in-one during his latest round of golf?
