Stephen Curry made an 18-foot putt for eagle on the final hole to win the American Century Championship at Lake Tahoe on Sunday, his first title in the celebrity tournament, and the first active athlete to win the American Century Championship since 2000.
Curry’s incredible putt capped off a memorable tournament for Curry, who also had a hole-in-one on Saturday. After the match-winning putt dropped, he tossed his hat into the air and ran into the arms of his wife, Ayesha.
“I don’t do this for a living, so it’s something you dream about,” Curry said. “I’ve been playing in this tournament for almost a decade and now I’ve got some hardware to show for it. It’s pretty special.”
Then-Tennessee Titans kicker Al del Greco was the last active athlete to win the tournament in 2000.
