US President Donald Trump, famous for his love of fast food, does not exercise or follow his diet plan, White House staffers said ahead of his annual physical exam.

President Trump is in great health according to the results of his latest physical exam. Trump has admitted that he has not hewn closely to his diet plan.

"The president received a diet and exercise plan a year ago after his annual physical, but the president admits he has not followed it religiously", said Hogan Gidley, the principal deputy White House press secretary.

Aussie Scott has three top-20 finishes in his past four starts, including a second-place showing at the Farmers Insurance Open. Brian Gay and Scott Langley each had a 64 at Monterey for a one-shot lead to par on the three-course rotation Thursday.

Jackson a year ago concluded that Trump was in "excellent health" despite his physical exam that time showing him borderline obese and his "bad cholesterol" levels rising.

Trump's Friday physical will likely be overseen by Dr Sean Conley, who succeeded Jackson as the President's personal physician. With the White House kitchen too understaffed to cater a meal, Trump stepped in: He ordered burgers, french fries and pizza. But the doctor named as its author later said Mr Trump had written the letter himself. Conley said that the president was not sedated at any point during the examination.

No further details on the president's health have been released yet.
