WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Not even spending most of his time in courtrooms attempting to defend himself from 88 felony counts can slow down Donald Trump’s golf game.

The former president boasted Sunday of adding two more championships to his long self-proclaimed list, saying on his social media site he won not only the Club Championship but also the Senior Club Championship at his course in West Palm Beach.

The post, which appeared on Truth Social, was sent during Trump International’s awards night.

“It is my great honor to be at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach tonight, AWARDS NIGHT, to receive THE CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP TROPHY & THE SENIOR CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP TROPHY,” the 77-year-old Trump wrote.


The post concluded with Trump adding: “A large and golfing talented membership, a GREAT and difficult course, make the play very exciting. The qualifying and match play was amazing. A large and distinguished group will be there tonight. Very exciting, thank you!!!”

The post was mocked by President Joe Biden who reposted Trump.

“Congratulations, Donald. Quite the accomplishment,” Biden wrote.

Jack Nicklaus was on hand Sunday to present Trump with the 2024 Trump International Golf Club Most Improved Player award.

Trump concluded that post by saying: “For some reason, I am just a good golfer/athlete – I have won many Club Championships, and it is always a great honor!”

Brian Jack, a MAGA Congressional candidate from Georgia, recently praised Trump for his golf skills by saying he “put to shame two professional golfers,” by shooting “a 70 on 18 holes.”

Trump bragging about his golfing exploits, and being accused of cheating on the course, goes back many years.

Those dubious claims on the course are legendary, and were the subject of a 2019 book by…
