Squirrels and handshakes ... the opening day of the Presidents Cup was as much about on-course antics as it was about the actual golf played.

With the U.S. staked to a 3 1/2 to 2 1/2 lead after Day 1, Tiger Woods and Matt Kuchar gained attention for their 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air'-inspired celebration. After winning their match over Angel Cabrera and Marc Leishman, 5 and 4, Kuchar took credit for implementing the handshake, calling Woods 'the perfect Carlton' to refer to Carlton Banks, another character from the '90s sitcom.

Late Thursday night, Alfonso Ribeiro – who played the role of Carlton on the show – took to Twitter to chime in on Kuchar's comments.

An avid golfer, Ribeiro has been known to break out his character's famous dance moves on the course as well.
