LIV Golf superstar Phil Mickelson is a six-time major champion and one of the best and most prominent golfers of his generation. But unfortunately for Mickelson, an overweight elderly man by the name of Donald Trump claims to have drastically outplayed him recently.
In a post on Truth Social this week, former United States President Donald Trump claims that he won the Senior Club Championship at his Bedminster, NJ course with an insane score of 67, which is five strokes under par.
“I am pleased to report, for those that care, that I just won the Senior Club Championship (must be over 50 years old!) at Bedminster (Trump National Golf Club), shooting a round of 67,” Trump wrote on Truth Social.
As Meidaite points out, this score is completely unbelievable and is eight strokes better than Mickelson shot on the same course just two weeks ago.
“Two weeks ago, the very same course hosted a tournament put on by Saudi-backed LIV Golf — an event which featured many of the best players in the world. Trump’s claimed score of 67 was better than all but one of the 48 players in the final round of that tournament. Legendary 6-time major champion Phil Mickelson shot 75 that day — 8 strokes worse than the score Trump says he posted on the very same layout,” Meidaite wrote.
But for anyone skeptical, Trump – known for his unimpeachable honesty – insists that he didn’t cheat.
“Some people will think that sounds low, but there is no hanky/lanky,” Trump wrote. “Many people watch, plus I am surrounded by Secret Service Agents. Not much you can do even if you wanted to, and I don’t. For some reason, I am just a good golfer/athlete – I have won many Club Championships, and it is always a great honor!”
Perhaps Trump should start playing for LIV himself.
