Derek Jeter might be improving his golf game, but that doesn’t mean he’s entirely truthful about it.
Jeter appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers Tuesday evening and discussed his recent ace, although it’s pretty clear the hole-in-one video from last week was in fact a fake. But Jeter’s not admitting it quite yet.
“I hadn’t hit a good shot the entire day,” Jeter said. “Now we’re in Vegas and my group was having a good time right from the first tee. I told them We have this video crew right here. Wherever I hit this ball, just act like it’s a hole-in-one.”
They didn’t disappoint, except for one small error.
“It was the best shot I hit all day,” Jeter said. “When I hit it I actually thought it had a chance to be a hole-in-one. But a couple members of my group started cheering a little early. We played it off pretty good.”
The golf discussion begins at 1:45 in the video below.
