After watching several golfers tee off, both former presidents were escorted out of the stands and back onto the course. Both Bush and Clinton took time to stop and speak with golf fans. Clinton even spoke briefly to WBTV.

“It feels good to be back in Charlotte, good to be back on this course, and good to watch somebody else who can actually play it,” said Clinton jokingly.

Fans who got to see the presidents up close were thrilled and surprised.

“We had no idea that not just one, but two presidents were gonna be here. It was awesome to see – very cool,” said golf fan Blake Nelson.

The Presidents Cup continues through Sunday.
