Steph Curry calls out pro after breaking 76 on debut

National Basketball Association star Stephen Curry shot a second consecutive 4-over 74 on Friday, mising the cut in the Web.com Tour's Ellie Mae Classic but expressing satisfaction with his play.

Curry, who holds a 2.0 handicap, chose to take part in this particular event due to the partnership between the Ellie Mae Classic and the Warriors Community Foundation.

He pulled his opening tee shot left, where it came to rest in the cup-holder of a golf cart. He completed three birdies and slotted ahead of two-time PGA Tour victor Frank Lickliter as well as the world's 429th-ranked player, Casey Wittenberg.

Curry raved about the experience speaking to reporters. Among his highlights was his first birdie of the day, on the drivable par-4 14th hole.

"To shoot 74, 74 I will take that, " he said.

The potentially controversial legislation would dramatically tilt American immigration law towards a more merit-based system. Trump called the bill the biggest change to US immigration policy in 50 years.

Former PGA champion Jason Day added: "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". "To play that well with the kind of pressure he must have been under is very impressive", Rickie Fowler told Golf Digest. "It could have been all that 80s-90s talk I heard coming into the tournament". With Friday fast approaching, it's yet to be seen if Lower has a plan to get inside Curry's head for day two as well.

Steph Curry proved on Thursday that he can keep up with the pros on the links.

"Once again, athletes like that, especially I think basketball players are probably the top athletes because obviously they can jump and run and do everything".

Curry, who finished 3rd last month at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship, tees off in the second round at 11:15 a.m. PDT on Friday.

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.
