Stephen Curry is in South Lake Tahoe this weekend for the American Century Celebrity Golf Tournament. The charity exhibition features stars from all over the sports and entertainment world, including Curry’s Golden State Warriors teammate Andre Iguodala, brother Seth Curry and Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

While not every celebrity playing in the tournament boasts a swing as smooth as Curry’s, at least the majority of current and former professional athletes participating have real aptitude for the game of golf. Curry, for instance, boasts an impressive handicap of around 2.0, while former Dallas Cowboys quarterback and current NFL analyst Tony Romo has even played in four officially sanctioned PGA Tour events.

Solid as Curry is on the links, basically, it would be surprising if he left South Lake Tahoe as the tournament’s winner. Still, it’s safe to say he’ll finish far higher up the leaderboard than NBA Hall-of-Famer and TNT commentator Charles Barkley.

Asked if Barkley had any chance at cracking the event’s top-70, Curry was incredulous.

“No, hell no,” Curry said, per Bill DiFilippo of Uproxx Sports. “Clip that, send it to him, let him play it on every tee box. There’s no way he’s doing it. As much faith as Chuck has had in the Warriors and jump shooting teams winning championships, that’s the amount of faith I have in him hitting the top-70.”

Last year’s tournament was won by former NBA head coach Vinny Del Negro. Curry finished in a tie for ninth, accruing 56 total points across his three rounds of play. Barkley, meanwhile, came in at 76th, tied with Tennessee Titans coach Mike Vrabel and two points behind NBA legend Vince Carter.

There are roughly 90 players hitting the links in South Lake Tahoe this weekend. Maybe the field is big and poor enough that Barkley proves Curry wrong this time around, earning some bragging rights in wake of the latter’s pointed trash talk.

We’re not counting on it, though.
