Former president Donald Trump claimed victory in the seniors’ golf championship at his property in West Palm Beach, Florida, over the weekend.
“A great honor,” Trump wrote on Truth Social on Sunday. “Competed against many fine golfers, and was hitting the ball long and straight. The reason that I announce this on fabulous TRUTH is that, in a very real way, it serves as a physical exam, only MUCH tougher. You need strength and stamina to WIN, & I have strength & stamina – most others don’t. You also need strength & stamina to GOVERN!”
The news came as participants of the seniors’ golf championship considering Trump missed half the tournament to attend the funeral of Diamond of “Diamond & Silk” fame that was located in North Carolina, over 600 miles away.
The Daily Mail revealed how the former President orchestrated the feat. “Insiders told DailyMail.com that competitors arriving for day two of the contest on Sunday morning were surprised (although not exactly shocked) to see his name at the top of the leaderboard with a five-point lead over the overnight leader,” the outlet wrote.
“He apparently told members that he had played a cracking round on Thursday, and that would count as his first day’s score.”
The Daily Mail also noted that this is not the first time Trump, a notorious golf cheater, has bent the rules at his own club. The outlet said, “Participants merely shrugged and competed for second place.”
