Stephen Curry crossed a dream day for any golfer off his bucket list Tuesday.
The Golden State Warriors guard and teammate Andre Iguodala are avid golfers, and their coach, Steve Kerr, promised them a round at Augusta National if they won the NBA championship, which they did. Kerr kept that promise and used a special connection to get them on one of the most storied golf courses in the world.
“I’d never been there before, so it was a real treat,” Curry told reporters Wednesday, via The Associated Press. “I’m not going to tell you what I shot, but that was a bucket-list kind of day. I’m a golf fanatic, so to say I played at Augusta is pretty cool.”
As for how the round went, Curry hinted at a less-than-stellar day on the course, but he did get off to a good start on hole No. 1 with a 10-foot birdie putt.
“You birdie the first hole, it can only go downhill from there,” Curry said. “That’s exactly what happened.”
