Woods and Manning defeated Brady and Mickelson in “The Match II: Champions for Charity” at Woods’ home club in Hobe Sound, Florida.
It is hardly surprising to see Stephen Curry tuned in to watch some of his fellow sporting superstars take some hacks.
Curry has a fairly detailed history with the game of golf. He even took part in a Web.com event in the summer of 2018, though he missed the cut after shooting 86 in the second round.
The two-time MVP also hosts a golf-themed television series called “Holey Moley,” with Season 2 of the show premiering on Thursday.
However, one of Curry’s most notable contributions was his decision to fund both men’s and women’s golf programs at Howard University in Washington, D.C.
Curry’s donation, which is estimated to have amounted to several millions of dollars, will be used to hire coaches and cover the cost of recruiting while also accounting for scholarships. The teams are supposed to begin play this fall, though it is unknown what kind of impact the coronavirus pandemic has had on the program.
Regardless, Curry likely will not have a ton of time to play golf this summer.
The 32-year-old will almost certainly be in the gym, looking to establish a sense of normalcy after missing nearly the entirety of the 2019-20 season
