Nicklaus, 80, wrote to his nearly 500,000 followers that the election is “not a personality contest; it’s about patriotism.”

“His love for America and its citizens, and putting his country first, has come through loud and clear,” he added while urging Americans to vote.

Cutler, now retired after stints with the Broncos and Dolphins after several years in Chicago, posted Nicklaus’s endorsement on his Instagram page while captioning, “Sign Me Up” and “Never a doubt” in separate posts.

Both Nicklaus and Cutler endorsed Trump in 2016.

“I’m happy with the [election] results,” Cutler told ESPN after Trump won four years ago. “I’ve supported Trump for a while. I’m not going to dive into it. I know it’s a sensitive issue.”

The endorsements sparked criticisms, mostly from those on the left, on social media.

Trump’s other supporters in the sports world include UFC Commissioner Dana White, former NFL star Herschel Walker, former NFL coach Mike Ditka, former MLB All-Star Johnny Damon, and Damon’s former teammate, Curt Schilling.
