Two-time MVP and two-time NBA Champion, Steph Curry, is known for being an avid golfer, but now he will put his golf game to the test against the pros. Curry will comepete against tour professionals who are one step away from the big time.  Curry received a sponsor exemption to play in the Tour’s Ellie Mae Classic in Hayward on August 3rd-6th. According to the Northern California Golf Association website, the NBA Superstar will carry a 2.0 handicap index.

Another Bay Area sports star played in the event at Stonebrae. Former 49ers wide receiver Jerry Rice made three appearances in the event but didn't make the cut. The Hall of Famer carries a 1.0 handicap index.

The annual event at TPC Stonebrae benefits the Warriors Community Foundation.
