Stephen Curry Supports His Cousin with Cancer at Ellie Mae Classic

"As soon as he said my name on the first tee, I could barely take my hands out of my pocket", Curry said.

Curry, who shot a four-over 74 in his first round on Thursday, followed that up with another four-over 74 on Friday, finishing with an eight-over 148 through two rounds.

"To keep it together after a shaky start was a proud moment", Curry said. "I don't usually do that, but I felt for golf, it was cool to kind of hear the chatter that was going on".

British Open Jordan Spieth said: "I think he certainly beat most everybody's expectations, but I don't think that really surprised him".

But he showed plenty of promise with birdies on two of the par fives and a two on the par-3 sixth hole. The two-time NBA Most Valuable Player cracked the field on a sponsor's invite, generating a lot of buzz.

Do you think that bringing in more players like Stephen Curry - high-level golfers from other realms of entertainment - can be good for golf in the long run? He then settled in and found his form on the back, rattling off four straight pars before birdieing the 14th and 17th holes, ultimately playing the back at even-par. Not surprisingly, van der Walt subsequently tweeted that he was "only joking" about that, but he did praise Curry for his play. One of the biggest bargains in the National Basketball Association before, Curry was rewarded last month with a $201 million, five-year contract. It was almost impossible for him to lose a ball. Curry will return to his day job of "NBA superstar" and clear the way for these fine pros to do what they do best this weekend. Wherever his shots landed, a big crowd quickly gathered to get a close glimpse of one of basketball's best.

On this day, it was Jaeger making a key assist down the stretch.

"Unbelievable gallery out here", Curry said, "hopefully that continues through the week".
