Warriors Guard Stephen Curry has played in front of millions on the basketball court, but what happens when he takes it to a golf course? Team 18Birdies went inside the ropes to follow the two-time NBA MVP as he competed in his first professional golf tournament at the Web.com Ellie Mae Classic. His first round of 74 (+4) alongside Sam Ryder and defending champion Stephan Jaeger impressed over 175 media members from the golf industry following his round, many of whom doubted his ability to shoot below 80.
