Stephen Curry again shoots 4-over to end pro golf debut

Stephen Curry making cut at Ellie Mae Classic would be like winning the tourney

National Basketball Association superstar Stephen Curry was understandably proud of his efforts after shooting back-to-back 74s on a Web.com Tour debut he described as a "dream come true".

Only four players who completed both rounds finished worse than Curry, but the pros were impressed, and PGA players such as Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas and Webb Simpson posted their support on Twitter throughout the tournament. Although Stephen Curry is not the favorite to win it all, he is making a very good account of himself, and proving that the Warriors guard belongs in the playing field.

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.

Curry opened with a 4-over 74 on the TPC Stonebrae and needed a career round to stay for the weekend. Sam Ryder, who won the Pinnacle Bank Championship two weeks ago, shot a 75.

"I think he certainly beat most everybody's expectations but I don't think that really surprised him", fellow Under Armour athlete Spieth said.

"It was an wonderful experience", Curry told reporters after the round.

Dallas Cowboys vs. Arizona Cardinals 2017
The new look secondary really needs to focus on going for the ball because the Cowboys only had nine interceptions a year ago. Head Coach Jason Garrett played a big part in Dak's development and was awarded Coach of the Year. "He's one of those guys".

Curry has said in the past, that if he did not play basketball he would have played golf professionally.

"To be honest, I think it's pretty special for a two-time MVP to be able to shoot 74 at a pro event and beat other pros", Jason Day said.

Through the first nine holes, it looked like Curry's second day might be a bit of a wet dud after his impressive first day. Obviously as a competitor, you feel like you can always play better.

He'll be back on the course Friday to see if he can make the cut.

While Curry's first foray in to professional golf is over, hopefully we'll get a chance to see more of him in the future.

"It could have been all those 80, 90 talks I heard going into the tournament".
