Steph Curry shoots 74, calls Tour debut an 'amazing experience'

National Basketball Association superstar Stephen Curry was understandably proud of his efforts after shooting back-to-back 74s on a Tour debut he described as a "dream come true". Curry has shown his fans on social media that he enjoys playing a round or two during the off-season, but most people never thought he would play a professional round of golf.

Curry could make the cut and said he'll check scores to see what he needs to shoot. Doubters of Curry can also bet against him to make the cut at -5000, but means they would have to bet $500 to win just $10 should their result come through. If you told me I was going to shoot 74 going into the first round I'd take that all day, every day.

Well, on Thursday, Curry may have silenced some of those critics by posting a respectable 4-over 74 in the first round of the tournament at TPC Stonebrae in San Francisco. With Curry in the field, it will likely be one of the most-watched events of the Tour season.

"To shoot even par on the back, try to keep it together after a shaky, bogey-filled start was definitely a proud moment", Curry said.

"I'm happy with it".

Curry raved about the experience speaking to reporters.

Indeed, the ball rolled up onto the green, eight feet from the cup, and Curry then drained the putt for a birdie, his first of two on the day and one of five in the tournament.

It's still unlikely that Curry will stay the weekend, but his eight-year National Basketball Association career and short pro golf career have certainly taught us to expect the unexpected. "I hit some good shots, and it gets you thinking if I had some to time to actually practice and pursue some coaching, I could take my game to the next level".

"I was asked if I thought he was going to break 80, and that's the hand grenade question", Paul Casey said.
