Donald Trump Really Did Once Hit a Hole-in-One at Pebble Beach

Pebble Beach has been preparing for the US Open for years.

With 250,000 people expected to attend the course over the week, Pebble Beach will be filled to the brim. 

One guy who knows the ins and outs of the famed golf course, is our very own POTUS.

Donald once had a real deal Hole in One. 

Trump stepped up to the 180-yard par-3 12th hole, and nailed it. 

“It was just a great moment, in front of thousands and thousands of people,” Trump   “The place went crazy, totally nuts. Payne (Stewart) was a friend of mine, and he said, ‘Slow down your swing, Donald.’ I didn’t know if I did slow up my swing, but the ball went in the hole.” told the San Francisco Chronicle in 2005.

Unfortunately there’s no video evidence, so maybe it’s just fake news? 

No, it in fact happened. 

Here’s a picture from the shot:  

 For an idea of what it might have looked like, here’s Trump in action at the 2012 Pro-Am below:  

Trump, who claimed about a 3 handicap before he stopped submitting scores while in office, never made the cut at a Pro-Am.

He played in seven tournaments, from 1993 to 2006, and his two-man team never advanced past the first two days.

I’m sure he’ll be tweeting about the action this weekend.
