The Golden Bear is bullish on Donald Trump.

Jack Nicklaus is the latest member of the sports world to endorse Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee for president of these here United States and someone for whom Nicklaus has designed golf courses.

“I like what Donald has done. I like that he’s turning America upside down,” Nicklaus told Jim Axelrod in a “CBS Sunday Morning” interview. “He’s awakening the country. We need a lot of that.”

Nicklaus said his business experiences with Trump, who attended the ceremony when Nicklaus was honored with a Congressional Gold Medal a year ago, had been positive and that he “didn’t want to get political about this.” Reluctantly, he said he knows how he is likely to vote in November even though he says Trump probably isn’t “as smooth or as politically correct as he should be.”

“I like the guy. He’s a good man,” Nicklaus said. “And certainly — if he’s the one that’s on the ticket, I’ll be voting for him.”
