Fresh from his appearance at The ESPYS, Stephen Curry is in Lake Tahoe putting his golfing skills to the test at the American Century Championship. In recent years, the two-time NBA champion has been a regular at this event, one of the premiere celebrity pro-am tournaments in golf. This is the same tournament where last year he did The Carlton alongside Justin Timberlake and the originator of the dance himself, Alfonso Ribeiro.
Always a regular on the golf course during the NBA’s offseason – this is fifth summer competing in this Lake Tahoe event – Curry will also participate in the Ellie Mae Classic in Hayward next month. The two-time NBA MVP will compete in the Web.com Tour (the NBA equivalent of the G League for the PGA Tour) after being granted an unrestricted sponsor exemption, but this weekend’s tournament, while competitive, is a little more on the light-hearted side, hence The Carlton from last year and the traditional parties taking place alongside the fairways.
Curry’s best finish at this event was fourth place back in 2013, and that year he actually held the lead with seven holes remaining.
Check out the rapid fire interview with Curry below and see him in action this weekend as follows:
- Friday, July 14: 3 p.m. on NBC Sports Network (Delayed – First Round)
- Saturday, July 15: Noon on NBC Sports Network (Live – Second Round)
- Sunday, July 16: Noon on NBC Sports Network (Live – Final Round)
