Warriors Superstar Steph Curry Graces Cover of Golf Digest

Golden State Warriors point guard Steph Curry has added another impressive achievement to his decorated resume, landing the cover of Golf Digest magazine. According to a report on Warriors fan site Golden State of Mind, the magazine profile spotlights both Curry's talent on the golf course as well as his efforts to expand access to the sport.

 

 

As many basketball fans know, golf is one of Curry's great passions outside of basketball. The article notes he has been dedicated to refining his own game while also leaving a positive impact on golf. Through advanced motion analysis, it was revealed Curry's swing mirrors that of touring pros in its mechanics - quite impressive for someone not playing golf professionally. Three-time major champ Jordan Spieth even says he only gives Curry a six-stroke handicap when they tee it up together.

 

Curry's entrepreneurial endeavor Underrated Golf also gets highlighted. He personally founded and funds the junior tour to provide opportunities for minority and disadvantaged youth to play competitive golf affordably. It's said to now be turning a profit while achieving its goal of diversifying the sport.


 

 

When asked about playing golf after basketball, Curry expressed hope for competing on the PGA Tour Champions for 50-and-over players one day. Next month you can catch him at the U.S. Open, where he'll receive an award for expanding golf's inclusiveness. Warriors fans will have to wait for the new NBA season to see Curry back in blue and yellow, but can continue following his golf exploits in the meantime. It's clear he's leaving deep marks on two very different but equally competitive games.
