Stephen Curry Hoping To ‘Not Go Happy Gilmore’ During Pro Golf Event

Stephen Curry admittedly doesn’t have many expectations for his upcoming amateur appearance on the Tour. But there is one famous fictitious golfer he hopes to avoid playing like.

The Golden State Warriors point guard, fresh off another NBA championship, announced Tuesday that he’ll compete in the Tour’s Ellie Mae Classic, which will be held from Aug. 3 through Aug. 6, at TPC Stonebrae in Hayward, Calif.

“I’m honored to have the opportunity to play with the pros in the upcoming Ellie Mae Classic, not only to be able to compete against some of the best golfers in the world, but to also help bring light to the tournament’s charitable footprint of giving back to the Warriors Community Foundation,” Curry said in a press release, via “Golf has always been a passion of mine and it’s a dream come true to get the chance to play inside the ropes amongst the pros in a PGA Tour-sanctioned tournament.”

Curry also sent out a series of tweets confirming the news, and he also mentioned that he only has two expectations for the weekend.

Keeping the ball out of the gallery seems like a good idea, and that Happy Gilmore swing never works the way you want it to.

Perhaps that’s why the had a recent practice round with fellow Under Armour teammate Tom Brady?
