On Thursday at Liberty National, the biennial competition between the U.S. and International teams truly could be called the Presidents Cup.
Day 1 of the event kicked off with a ceremonial tee shot at Liberty National in New Jersey, and standing by watching the action were the last three presidents to serve: George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama.
The power trio, part of an exclusive club with only six living members, chatted with players, fans and each other in a nice display of unity and respect that is all too rare these days. You can see photos below.
