Curry, a former most valuable player in the National Basketball Association, followed his opening-round four-over par 74 in the Web.com Tour's Ellie Mae Classic with a another 74 at the TPC Stonebrae in Hayward, Calif., 17 miles southwest of where he plies his trade, in the Oracle Arena, for the Golden State Warriors.

The Golden State Warrior, 29, was given a sponsor's invite to compete in the Ellie Mae Classic on the Web.com Tour.

His tee shot on the first hole of the tournament landed in a golf buggy to give him an inauspicious start, but despite that and a couple of other wobbles he managed to hold his own.

It was surprising given the circumstances, especially considering, you know, Curry doesn't play golf for a living and he was thrown into the mix with a bunch of other guys who have spent significant time on the PGA Tour.

Before the round, pro Dawie van der Walt told ESPN that he would be stunned if Curry broke 80 on Friday. Among his highlights was his first birdie of the day, on the drivable par-4 14th hole. "To play that well with the kind of pressure he must have been under is very impressive", Rickie Fowler told Golf Digest.

'To shoot two 74s, I'll take that.

As if getting into a fight in a friendly wasn't too over the top, a hospital visit was also needed because of the punch. However, he may have put himself and the Clippers in danger during an worldwide friendly.

Curry confessed that after his first 74, he was obsessed with what the golf world about it.

Curry began his round on the back nine and was 2-over 37 at the turn, where he eagerly accepted a bag of fast food chicken for lunch.

Many have tried and failed, and Curry faces a steep battle on Friday to make the cut, which is expected to fall at around two under.

Curry added another birdie on Hole 17 but bogeyed the final hole missing a 10-foot putt, to end the day at 4-over yet again.

Most players on the Web.com Tour would not be happy with shooting consecutive rounds of 74, better than just a handful of competitors, while missing the cut by 11 strokes at an event.
