Stephen Curry: Golden State Warriors player hits 74 on pro golf debut


On the 15th fairway, Curry leaned on West, a member of Golden State's front office and the son of the N.B.A. Hall of Famer Jerry West. Jonnie West is also a member of the Stonebrae club.

Stephen Curry missed the cut Friday night against professional golfers one notch below the PGA Tour.

Into the arena.@StephenCurry30's opening round @EllieMaeClassic is underway.

Curry said he'd heard about the Nicklaus message but hadn't seen it. While Curry is not fooling anyone into thinking he can win this week, he is now sitting above eight golfers on the live leaderboard and is generating huge viewing interest in this event. The score in the first round was enough to make a believer out of Johnson.

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi will visit flood-affected Banaskantha district in Gujarat tomorrow, a party statement said. He added that Congress party will help the people affected due to floods in other states as well.

The good news for Curry is that he was close to saving par after hitting a very good chip shot that nearly made it to the hole. He fired a respectable 4-over-par 74, picking up birdies on a pair of Par-5s and saving par with numerous long putts. I took a screenshot of that.

But he showed plenty of promise with birdies on two of the par fives and a two on the par-3 sixth hole.

Most expected Curry to struggle badly, but he shot a four-over-par round - better than 13 players in the field - before taking to Twitter afterwards to address a tweet made by pro Steve Wheatcroft ahead of his round. "I don't know that golf course". Curry more than held up his end of the bargain, and proved once again what the difference between a scratch golfer and a touring pro can be. "It's just insane to have some buzz around the golfing world because I watch all those guys every single week".

Most players on the Tour would not be happy with shooting consecutive rounds of 74, better than just a handful of competitors, while missing the cut by 11 strokes at an event.
