Stephen Curry finishes in fourth place in celebrity golf tournament
Outside of basketball, Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry also enjoys playing golf and is quite good at it. He even admitted before that he continues to find time to play more on the greens during the NBA season to further improve his skills.
Now in the offseason break, the former back-to-back MVP joined a celebrity golf tournament and made a good account of himself by finishing in fourth place with an even par final round. He then shared, according to the Associated Press via ESPN, that he is very happy with his play in the final day, and even called it the “best round he’s played in his life.”
“This is no exaggeration, this is the best complete round of my life. I think I am one off from my best score, but considering the environment, how terrible I played earlier in the week, and to finish like this was the definitely the best round of my life. To finish like that on 18 was really, really fun. I’m going to be bragging about that for a long time.”
A number of former and current professional athletes, actors, and other celebrities joined the event. Mark Mulder won the tournament, while his fellow former MLB pitcher Derek Lowe finished in second place. The winner of the three-day competition took home $125,000.
Curry is scheduled to take part in another tournament next month, and will have “home court advantage” as it will be at the Bay Area from August 3-6. With his performance in the last day, he should carry some momentum next time he competes and it won’t be surprising if he’ll once again have a top-five finish.
