Whenever Stephen Curry decides to hang up the basketball shoes, he should grab the golf cleats out of his closet to consider a career on the course.
The Golden State Warriors superstar is tied for 10th after the first round at the American Century Championship at Edgewood Tahoe South.
A host of celebrities and athletes are taking part in the annual American Century Golf Championship at Edgewood Tahoe South in Stateline, Nevada.
Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry and Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes are among them.
Under the Modified Stableford scoring system, Curry has a score of 16 through 18 holes. He had one of the best shots of the day by any player on No. 13 with an eagle from 97 yards out.
After two rounds of the 54-hole tournament, Curry is tied for 19th in the 87-player field with 24 points. Mahomes is alone in 51st with two points. Former MLB pitcher Mark Mulder leads the field with 43 points.
The tournament operates under the Stableford scoring system. For this event, an eagle is worth sixth points, a birdie is worth three and a par is worth one.
On the other side, a bogey is worth no points and a double bogey or worse loses the player two points.
Curry, who is coming off his fourth NBA championship and first-ever NBA Finals MVP, drew a massive crowd Saturday.
Curry also made a birdie on No. 4. He finished the day with par on nine holes, six bogeys and a double-bogey. The reigning NBA Finals MVP had a 77 on the par-72 course. Actor Jack Wagner, singer Jake Owen and former MLB pitcher Derek Lowe matched Curry’s score of 16.
Curry provided the highlight of the day on Friday after drilling a 97-yard approach shot.
He nearly was able to do something similar the next day. When he did not, Justin Timberlake joked with him about his inability to deliver an encore performance.
Curry did not have as good of a day Saturday as he did Friday, scoring eight points in the second round. He did card a pair of birdies on the back nine, though, to stay in the top 20.
