NBA star Curry impresses in debut professional round

NBA superstar Stephen Curry has swapped the basketball court for the golf course this week and proved he could handle himself pretty well.

The Golden State Warriors player signed for a four over 74 at the Tour’s Ellie Mae Classic on Thursday.

While Curry is eleven strokes off the lead, he has plenty reasons to smile, with four birdies leaving him tied for 142nd in the 156-man field.

There was also a delightful moment when Curry rolled in a 20 foot putt and paid homage to Jordan Spieth’s Open Championship heroics, pointing at the hole and telling his caddie to “go get that…”

The golfing world took notice of Curry’s round, heaping praise on the two-time NBA MVP.
