Andre Iguodala takes jab at Warriors star Stephen Curry’s golf game ahead of The Match 3

Andre Iguodala, Stephen Curry, Warriors

Andre Iguodala has some trash talk lined up for former Golden State Warriors teammate Stephen Curry as the latter prepares for a charity golf match.

Curry and NFL legend Peyton Manning are teaming up against Charles Barkley and five-time major champion Phil Mickelson in “The Match 3.” Although Steph is an avid golfer and has even played in a Web.com event, Iguodala said the former MVP’s game is “not trending in the right direction.”

Iggy has never shied away from teasing his Warriors teammates. The former All-Star still reflects quite fondly on those days, even considering them the hallmark of his playing career.

But he also might have put more gas in Curry’s tank, which is not the best of news for Barkley and Mickelson.

The sports stars are taking part in the “Champions for Charity” trilogy after this summer’s matchup featured Mickelson and Tom Brady taking on Manning and Tiger Woods. Steph had almost immediately suggested he was interested in taking part in the next event, and Barkley–a commentator for the second match–is happy to jump into the mix with the  Warriors sharpshooter.

Chuck is notorious for the evolution of his golf game. Barkley’s swing has practically become a YouTube sensation over the years, and it will be interesting to see whether he can even avoid the wrath of his own teammate–considering Mickelson is one of golf’s eminent trash talkers and jokesters.

In any case, Andre Iguodala is none too convinced Stephen Curry’s game will be up to par, so to speak. Interested fans can find out on Nov. 27.
