Trump: I have too much integrity to cheat in golf
Donald Trump wants to make one thing perfectly clear - he doesn't cheat in golf.
Trump also says he has never played golf with former boxer Oscar De La Hoya, who earlier this week questioned Trump's integrity on the golf course.
Trump told The Associated Press on Thursday he respects the game too much to cheat and is good enough to have won a number of club championships. Trump, who owns 18 golf courses, says De La Hoya is lying about him because he wants to sell tickets to a fight he is promoting.
The presumptive Republican presidential nominee said his son Eric told him not to respond to De La Hoya's charges that he cheated on two different holes two years ago at Trump National golf course in Los Angeles. But he says he had to respond because golf is a game built on integrity.
