CURRY TO SPICE UP TOUR EVENT
NBA All-Star guard Stephen Curry, who helped the Golden State Warriors capture their second title in three seasons this month, will play in a second-tier professional golf tournament in August. The two-time NBA Most Valuable Player will compete at the Web.com Tour’s Ellie Mae Classic in San Francisco, playing as an amateur on a sponsor’s exemption. “People asking why I’m playing. Unexpected invite & Always a dream 2 play golf w/ the pros. WebDotComTour has so much talent it’s unreal,” Curry tweeted about playing. “Obviously want to play well & see how I handle tournament golf. No expectations except keep ball out of the gallery and not go Happy Gilmore.” Curry has a handicap of 2.2. “It’s a dream come true to get the chance to play inside the ropes amongst the pros,” Curry said.
