A new plaque on his locker at the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida, has commemorated his title as the 2018 men's club champion.

What's more, the website reported, Trump wasn't the original "winner" of the tournament, and he's not even the only victor now.

But the president didn't actually compete in the contest - and instead convinced its actual victor, Ted Virtue, to play him one-on-one for the title, Golf.com reports.

Trump, has frequently visited his own clubs as president, including almost 20 visits to the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach as well as his Bedminster, New Jersey golf course and his Virginia club.

Selon le physiothérapeute Rafael Martini, toujours dans ce communiqué, " Neymar ne ressent plus de douleurs et réagit très bien aux traitements et entraînements quotidiens".

"The only reason you won is because I couldn't play", Trump allegedly told Virtue, complaining that his presidential duties were keeping him away from the tournament, although according to trumpgolfcount.com, the leader of the free world made 20 visits to the club in 2018, and made a total 67 trips to his golf properties that same year.

The president proposed a nine-hole, winner-take-all match-up for the title, and Virtue accepted the challenge, squaring off against Trump without any rules officials present. The president won and reportedly said something to the effect of "This isn't fair-we'll be co-champions".

The president's most recent "win" brings his club-championship victories to 20 and they were all won at Trump golf courses.
