NBA Star Plays at Web.Com
Stephen Curry holds plenty of records in basketball, including being a two-time winner of the NBA’s Most Valuable Player award and leading the Golden State Warriors to win their first championship since 1975 in 2015 and again in 2017. What’s more is the 29-year-old still has a lengthy NBA career ahead of him.
However, seemingly not satisfied with dominating in just one sport, Curry is now trying his hand at golf. Curry is set to go up against the pros at the Ellie Mae Classic at TPC Stonebrae on August 3-6 after receiving a sponsor exemption. The Ellie Mae Classic is helping to raise money for the Warriors Community Foundation this year, hence Curry’s involvement.
"When I found out I was getting a sponsor exemption, I had a lot of emotions because I love to play golf; it's a passion of mine. But to be able to play against the next and best golf professionals will be a huge honor and huge treat... I'm going to try to keep it on the fairway," said Curry in a video released by the Warriors.
It will be the first PGA Tour-sanctioned event for Curry. The two-time NBA MVP holds a 2.0 handicap and has prior experience playing in PGA Tour pro-am events in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Let’s see if he can have as much success on the course as the court.
