Cape Town - US President Donald Trump delivers a few lines in an upcoming three-part documentary on golfing legend Jack Nicklaus.

The controversial leader appears in the Golf Channel documentary, Jack, where he sings the praises of the 18-time major winner. 

"People like Jack, they have a desire to win," Trump says in the special. 

"They never give up, they never quit. He's a man that's led a truly exemplary life; his family, his work ethic, his championship status. He’s a very exceptional man."

Meanwhile, Nicklaus revealed in a report on Golf Week that he is a Trump supporter and backs him to do well in office.

"I have known Donald for a long time, through the game of golf," said the 77-year-old.

"He's been very supportive of a lot of things I have done.

"I think he’s going to be good in the office, going to do a good job."
