Stephen Curry said he offered to take salary discount for Warriors

I don't get to practice that much and really understand what that means to fine tune things in my swing and my game, but I just want to get better with a playing experience and things like that.

The 29-year-old has been taking advice from professional golfers ahead of the tournament, with Nick Rousey among those offering words of wisdom. According to the NCGA website, Curry's handicap index is +0.7 - excellent for a weekend warrior, but not good enough to go compete with the pros.

Slightly more prudent bettors might consider picking Curry to make the cut, which is available at a much more attainable +1500, meaning a $US10 bet would bring back $US150.


"Golf has been a passion of mine since I was a kid", he told ESPN's Michael Collins. His ability to make pull-up 3s from anywhere in front of the half-court line combined with his ability to get into the lane and finish at the rim is something the league has never seen before. He will play alongside Stephan Jaeger, the defending champion who shot a record 12-under-par round of 58 past year, and Sam Ryder, one of the tournament favourites who won only last week.

Curry is scheduled to tee off Thursday at 11:55 am local time and will be paired with Sam Ryder and defending champion Stephan Jaeger in each of the first two rounds. Myself as a casual professional golfer in my head, not in real life, I just want to have fun, make some birdies.

"I actually asked Bob [Myers]", Curry said. Ever since [LeBron] posted that first video, I've loved it because he made a song that maybe a lot of people wouldn't have know pretty popular just by doing that video.
