Stephen Curry is in the midst of trying to win his third NBA championship with the Golden State Warriors, but he is also looking to bring his brand to golf fans. According to ESPN, the former MVP and avid golfer could sell marketing and sponsorship at a PGA Tour event in the fall of 2019.
Curry’s representatives at Octagon could target the Safeway Open, which is played in Napa, CA. This is one of three domestic events on the PGA Tour schedule and the closest to the Warriors’ Oracle Arena.
Curry is an accomplished golfer, as he competed in a professional golf event last summer. He is also passionate about following his off-the-court interests.
"Besides family and basketball, philanthropy, investing, technology and golf are high up on his list," said Frank Zecca, managing director at Octagon. "Culinary, community and the Bay Area are also priorities."
“There's no doubt Stephen Curry brings a young, new, diverse audience to the PGA Tour through his passion for this great game and support for the community," PGA Tour spokeswoman Laura Neal told ESPN.
The Warriors are currently in a tough battle in the Western Conference Finals. After snatching the first game of their series against the Rockets, Houston bounced back with a dominant effort in Game 2. Game 3 will shift to Oakland’s Oracle Arena on Sunday.
Curry is not expected to play in the golf tournament, and his focus remains squarely on basketball at the time being.
