Warriors' Steph Curry shoots a 74 in Tour event

Warriors' Steph Curry shoots a 74 in Tour event

Curry announced last month that he would be entering the Ellie Mae Classic on a sponsor exemption, participating as one of three amateurs at the event, despite a scarce amount of time to prepare due to his basketball obligations. I know for a fact he was the happiest person at TPC Stonebrae this week getting to watch me tee it up on this stage.

Steph Curry already has two NBA MVP awards and two NBA Finals titles to his name.

"I obviously thank Ellie Mae and the for giving me this opportunity because it was a dream come true for sure".

Do you think that bringing in more players like Stephen Curry - high-level golfers from other realms of entertainment - can be good for golf in the long run?

Not quite as spot-on as those signature pregame tunnel shots at Oracle Arena or the jaw-dropping, buzzer-beating 3-pointers from way, way back.

"Everything was just an unbelievable experience", Curry said.

U.S. conducts successful THAAD anti-missile system test
The last time the US tested THAAD, earlier this month, it said it successfully intercepted an intermediate-range missile target. The test comes days after North Korea conducted its second test of an intercontinental ballistic missile in a month.

Playing his other sporting passion, Curry got plenty of help along the 7,024-yard, par-70 course. "So hopefully I can do that tomorrow".

Curry had a rough start Friday, posting bogeys on four of the first eight holes, but settled down to par the next five before getting up and down out of a bunker for birdie on No. 14. "I had to take a deep breath and still there wasn't anything I could do to prepare for that moment but after the third hole it was just golf like normal".

Many have tried and failed, and Curry faces a steep battle on Friday to make the cut, which is expected to fall at around two under.

Although Curry beat only four of the players who completed 36 holes, he was pleased to have avoided the high scores that some had predicted for him.

"My wife's probably hot at me because all day yesterday, that's all I was doing was checking out the who-said-what type of thing", he said.
