Phil Mickelson has been picked to re-design a golf club in Bali, one that is set to become Trump International Golf Club after the renovation.

The five-time major winner and his team will be working with developer MNC Land and the Trump Organization to overhaul Nirwana Golf Course, located along the Indian Ocean.

"I've been fortunate to work on some great projects, but to contribute to what will be a six-star property is a rare and fabulous opportunity," Mickelson said in a statement. "The site is breathtaking and we will create a golf experience that presents both exciting options for players on the course and memories for a lifetime."

Though the 47-year-old is renowned for his playing prowess, Mickelson has helmed several high-profile designs renovations in the past few years, including Whispering Rock and this week's PGA Tour venue at the Greenbrier.

"Phil Mickelson's track record as a professional golfer speaks for itself and we are thrilled to have his vision and talent for our latest development in such a beautiful location," said Eric Trump, executive vice president of the Trump Organization.

This will be the 19th golf property around the world under Trump control.
