Jordan Spieth and Jason Day impressed with Steph Curry's pro golf debut

Jordan Spieth and Jason Day impressed with Steph Curry's pro golf debut

"Definitely proud to have had a consistent effort for 36 holes". Curry has shown his fans on social media that he enjoys playing a round or two during the off-season, but most people never thought he would play a professional round of golf.

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

While Curry's first foray in to professional golf is over, hopefully we'll get a chance to see more of him in the future. The score in the first round was enough to make a believer out of Johnson. "I don't usually do that, but I felt for golf, it was cool to kind of hear the chatter that was going on".

Basketball star Stephen Curry carded a second successive four-over-par 74 in the Ellie Mae Classic. He fired a respectable 4-over-par 74, picking up birdies on a pair of Par-5s and saving par with numerous long putts. A spectacular bunker shot set up the 10' effort. "So I think he just closed the club face and took a smack at it and he did it".

Curry had a rough start Friday, posting bogeys on four of the first eight holes, but settled down to par the next five before getting up and down out of a bunker for birdie on No. 14. Although Stephen Curry is not the favorite to win it all, he is making a very good account of himself, and proving that the Warriors guard belongs in the playing field. 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. There's 154 guys out here that are unbelievable talents that fight every week to do what they do. "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". "I'll stay in my lane and enjoy", Curry said.
