Stephen Curry at Ellie Mae Classic, Round 2

Adjust Comment Print

Curry settled down, settled his nerves and carded a 4-over-par in his Tour debut at the Ellie Mae Classic. All things considered, the Warriors guard has to be satisfied with his performance in his first professional golf tournament. Even if he plays a spectacular round, it's tough to imagine him keeping pace with people who golf week in and week out to make a living. The two-time NBA Most Valuable Player cracked the field on a sponsor's invite, generating a lot of buzz. Doubters of Curry can also bet against him to make the cut at -5000, but means they would have to bet $500 to win just $10 should their result come through. He did finish ahead of four players, including five-time Tour victor Matthew Goggin, and Colt McNealy, incoming Stanford freshman and younger brother of the No. 2-ranked amateur in the world, Maverick McNealy.

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

Curry began his round on the back nine, and he said that when his name was announced on the tee, "I could barely feel my hands; I had to try to take a deep breath". 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. "First opportunity to play with these guys, first tee shot was insane, first par I made trying to settle in and then obviously the first birdie was a really cool moment".

Stephen Curry may be known for his buzzer beaters on the court, but what he may not be known for is his impressive golf game.

His opening shot landed in a golf cart, and he bogeyed three of the first five holes in Hayward, California. He picked up his first birdie of the day on Hole 14, using a quality chip out of the sand to set up a manageable put.

"I think it's pretty special for a two-time MVP to be able to shoot 74 at a pro event and beat other pros", said major victor Jason Day. It could have been those 80, 90 talks I heard going into the tournament.
