Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton were on the first tee Thursday for the Presidents Cup at Liberty National Golf Club.

All three served as honorary chairmen of the event during their time as U.S. President; President Donald Trump is the honorary chairman this year.

Although the PGA Tour confirmed the three former presidents would be here Thursday, the organization would not comment on a Golf Channel report that Trump will make an appearance Sunday.

This is the 12th Presidents Cup, which began in 1994 and pits a team of United States players against an International squad from players outside of Europe. The U.S. leads the competition 9-1-1 and lost for the only time in 1999.
