Steph Curry hit a number of impressive shots in pro golf debut


Stephen Curry completed his first ever round in a professional golf tournament on Thursday, shooting a 74 (four over par) putting him 10 strokes back of the leader in the Ellie Mae Classic on the Web.com Tour. Considering Curry is an amateur the score is impressive, and surprised PGA player Steve Wheatcroft.

According to Marcus Thompson of The Athletic, Curry was incredibly nervous before taking his tee shot.

After some opening jitters, that included three bogey’s on the first five holes, Curry found his groove, finishing two-over par on the front nine, and hitting a number of impressive shots.

“If you told me I’d shoot a 74 going into my first round, I’d take that all day, everyday,” Curry said, per the Web.com Tour. “Pretty happy with it. Obviously as a competitor you can always play better, so hopefully I can do that tomorrow.”
