Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry is one of the greatest shooters in NBA history, and he’s also a pretty fine golfer. A year after making his professional debut on the Web.com Tour, the two-time NBA MVP is once again trying his hand at golf.
Curry will return to the site of his first tournament, the Ellie Mae Classic at TPC Stonebrae in Hayward, CA. Although Curry missed the cut in 2017, he fired back-to-back rounds of 74–an impressive accomplishment for a player who has won three NBA titles.
Curry finished 148th out of the 156-man field last year.
"The players on the Web.com Tour welcomed me with open arms in 2017, and it was an amazing experience," Curry said in a statement. "Golf is a game that has provided wonderful experiences in my life, and I am excited to return to the Ellie Mae Classic in August."
Curry has emerged as the face of the franchise for one of the most successful teams in NBA history. In addition to winning three championships, the Warriors have gone to the NBA Finals in four straight seasons. The addition of Kevin Durant has hoisted them into the pantheon of all-time great NBA teams.
During the 2017-18 season, Curry averaged 26.4 PPG, 6.1 APG, and 5.1 RPG for the 58-24 Warriors.
