Stephen Curry sticks it to haters with another solid pro golf showing

NBA champ Curry to test golf skills

Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry continued to dabble with a professional golfing career Friday, shooting a 4-over 74 for the second straight round at the Ellie Mae Classic on the Web.com Tour. "Everything was just an unbelievable experience, and to shoot two 74s, I'll take that".

Curry, who munched on a breakfast sandwich at the green of his first hole, missed badly on his opening tee shot.

Was it flawless? Of course not, but it's exactly what we should have hoped to see. "I don't usually do that, but I felt for golf, it was cool to kind of hear the chatter that was going on". But even Jordan Spieth hits plenty of wayward shots.

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 Curry beat only four of the players who completed 36 holes, he was pleased to have avoided the high scores that some had predicted for him.

Curry began his round on the back nine and was 2-over 37 at the turn, where he eagerly accepted a bag of fast food chicken for lunch. "I hit some good shots, and it gets you thinking if I had some to time to actually practice and pursue some coaching, I could take my game to the next level".

"I think it's pretty special for a two-time MVP to be able to shoot 74 at a pro event and beat other pros", said major victor Jason Day. Wherever his shots landed, a big crowd quickly gathered to get an up-close glimpse of one of basketball's best.

On this day, it was Jaeger making a key assist down the stretch.

Slightly more prudent bettors might consider picking Curry to make the cut, which is available at a much more attainable +1500, meaning a $10 bet would bring back $150.
