Michael Jordan played golf. So why not Stephen Curry, the two-time NBA MVP?

“Golf has always been a passion of mine,” Curry said in a statement about the July 31 Ellie Mae Classic in Hayward, south of Oakland. “It’s a dream come true to get the chance to play inside the ropes amongst the pros in a PGA Tour-sanctioned tournament.”

“I’m going to try and keep it in the fairway and play well,” he said on CNN.

“Curry — a near scratch golfer — was a two-way athlete in high-school, splitting time between the hardwood and the fairway,” CNN noted. “He began putting at age 8, and first took golf seriously after beating his father, former NBA pro Dell Curry, as a 13-year-old.”

Golf Digest recently ranked the Golden State Warriors point guard as the top NBA golfer.

Here’s a ranking of his tweets on the matter.
