Trump’s granddaughter Kai WINS the women’s championship at his golf club: Don Jr. and Vanessa’s 14-year-old daughter storms to victory in West Palm Beach

  • Trump’s talented  granddaughter won women’s club championship last weekend 
  • 14-year-old Kai beat more experienced golfers at the tournament held at her family’s course in West Palm Beach, Florida
  • She is the daughter of Don Jr and his ex-wife Vanessa 
  • And she has long been seen as potentially the best golfer in the family 
  • On Thursday, she posted photographs on her win to social media 

Former President Donald Trump’s 14-year-old granddaughter won the women’s championship at his West Palm Beach golf club last weekend, storming through a field of players with decades more experience.

The Trump family has long suggested that Kai might be the best golfer out of all of them – and she proved it with what observers said was an impressive victory.

Don Jr’s daughter announced her win with a modest announcement on Instagram and a photograph posing with her championship plaque alongside her grandfather and mother Vanessa.

‘Over the weekend I won the Women’s Club Championship,’ she posted. 

Her proud father commented: ‘Great work Kai.’

The Trump International Golf Club in West Palm beach is a 15-minute drive from Mar-a-Lago, the former president’s winter headquarters.

He is on the course several times a week, often entertaining visiting politicians – last weekend in was Sen. Lindsey Graham – of business contacts.

But it was more of a family affair last weekend, when Melania was also spotted at the club making a rare appearance for dinner.  

Kai is the daughter of Don Jr. and Vanessa, who divorced in 2018. 

And her win meant she won family bragging rights.

Her 74-year-old grandfather was knocked out in the quarter finals a week earlier.

But Kai’s supremacy will come as no surprise to club members who have seen her in action and think she has the talent for a college scholarship, or to her proud father and uncle.

At the end of 2020, Don jr posted a video of his daughter in action.   

‘Amazing swing Kai. Daddy daughter day on the golf course,’ he wrote.

‘Kai is really getting good… I think I got lucky that we were rained out after 6 holes.’

And five years ago, he singled her out when quizzed by journalists about who was the best golfer in the family. 

He and brother Eric were answering questions at their Bedminster golf club in New Jersey ahead of the U.S. Women’s Open in 2017. 

‘Don, stand up,’ said Eric, when asked about the best player, according to Town & Country magazine. ‘It’s not Don.’

His elder brother quickly said: ‘It’s my daughter,’ before clarifying that Kai certainly had the most potential of anyone in the family.  

As for who is the best in the family right now, there was only one answer 

‘My father is an unbelievable golfer,’ Eric said. ‘He loves the game. I think everybody in this room knows that.’

But whether that is true five years later is another matter.
