Former President Donald Trump issued a statement Monday confirming that he made a hole-in-one at his golf club over the weekend.

After Senate candidate Tim Swain (R) of South Carolina posted a photo to Twitter captioned “Trump just made a hole-in-one,” many critics took to social media in doubt, questioning Trump’s abilities.

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

A spokesperson of Trump’s tweeted a video of Trump going to retrieve the golf ball after his ace.

“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,” said Trump.

Trump shared that he was golfing with professionals Ernie Els, Gene Sauers, Ken Duke and Mike Goodes.

“These great tour players noticed it before I did because their eyes are slightly better, but on that one hole, their swings weren’t.”

Trump’s statement continued: “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. 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!”
