Obama, Bush, Clinton celebrate start of Presidents Cup

JERSEY CITY, N.C. (AP) — The start of the Presidents Cup gave golf a new “Big Three” — former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton posing with players and wives on each team in an opening ceremony unlike any other.

It was the first time three U.S. presidents have attended the matches at the same time since this event named after the highest office in the land began in 1994.

The U-shaped grandstands around the first tee at Liberty National were at capacity more than an hour before the first tee time Thursday. Most of the players were warming up on the range. Phil Mickelson, in the fifth and final match, came over early to shake hands.

Then, Mickelson took out his phone for a selfie he might not get again.
