The opportunity presented itself to Curry when got a sponsor exemption order to play in the event and was playing for the Warriors Community Foundation.

The ball and the hole both were smaller than those with which Steph Curry has made his name and makes his living, but expectations in his debut playing professional tournament golf were of a similar scale. "Everything was just an unbelievable experience, and to shoot two 74s, I'll take that".

"I was asked if I thought he was going to break 80, and that's the hand grenade question", Paul Casey said. Waiting at the tee box on their final hole, he took a basketball belonging to Erik Oswald, a 14-year-old from Southern California, gave it to Curry to autograph and then returned it to the giddy teenager, who had followed Curry all day. On the backside, Curry again carded a 37 - making two more birdies to go along with two bogeys and a costly double bogey on the par 4-fifth hole.

On the 15th fairway, Curry leaned on West, a member of Golden State's front office and son of Hall of Famer Jerry West. Jonnie West also is a member at this course. "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 after the third or fourth hole, it was just golf and I just tried to hit some good shots. "Then it got into the social media stuff, but a lot of people had their foot in their mouth, so that was cool, to set a little fire in that regard". I took a screenshot of that.
