The prestigious golf tournament, hosted by the PGA at the Liberty National Golf Course, welcomed the last three U.S. Presidents on the opening day of their four-day event.

The hosting mayor tweeted it was “a huge honor” to welcome them to Jersey City.

The biennial event has a team of American golfers squaring off with competition from around the world (the International Team) and the first match began at 1:05 p.m., in a contest that pitted the USA against South Africa.
