Nicklaus throws support behind Trump

Golfing legend Jack Nicklaus has revealed he would vote for Donald Trump if he is the Republican nominee.

The 18-time major winner has a joined a growing list of sports celebrities that are trump followers, including fellow golfer John Daly and former basketball player Dennis Rodman.

“Donald is terrific,” the 76-year-old told CBS.

“I’ve done several things with Donald, some golf courses and he has absolutely treated me great. He’s been above board. I don’t want to get political in this, I like what Donald’s done, he’s turning America upside down, he’s awakening the country.

“Is he as smooth and politically correct as he should be? Probably not. But he’ll learn. He’s not stupid. He didn’t get where he was being dumb. I like the guy, he’s a good man, and certainly if he’s the one on the ticket, I’ll be voting for him.”
