  • Former President Donald Trump hit a hole-in-one at his golf club in West Palm Beach, Florida.

  • The feat was witnessed by pro golfer Ernie Els.

  • A plaque at his golf course in New York claims he hit a hole-in-one in the first round ever played there.

Former President Donald Trump raised eyebrows again by releasing an official statement about hitting a hole-in-one while playing golf at one of his courses over the weekend.

While this feat appears to have had several witnesses, including four-time major winner Ernie Els, it is not the first time Trump has laid claim to an ace on one of his courses.

In 2015, Business Insider's Jay Yarrow and Tony Manfred played Trump's Ferry Point Golf Course in New York.

On the 12th hole, they discovered this plaque. Not only did Trump hit a hole-in-one on this course in 2013, but the plaque also says he did it in the first round ever played on the golf course.

We don't know anything more about the 2013 hole-in-one beyond what is written on the plaque. However, the latest ace took place on the seventh hole at Trump International Golf Course in West Palm Beach, Florida.

The achievement was first mentioned by South Carolina Senate candidate Tim Swain on Twitter.

After many people raised some doubts, citing his alleged history of cheating at golf, Trump issued a statement confirming the hole-in-one, despite being "a very modest individual" who doesn't like "people who brag."
