Regardless of whether or not anyone believes Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry belongs in the GOAT debate, there is no doubt that he changed the game of basketball like few others before him. If things had broken a different way, however, Steph might have entered a whole different realm.

On the contrary, he may have traveled an entirely different course. Specifically, the type consisting of fairways, greens and sand traps.

“There was always that question,” Curry once said of whether he could have been a championship-level golfer, as relayed Launderer’s report. “If I had to devote as much time to golf as I did to basketball, could I have made it? We’ll never know, but it’s always in competition in terms of attention.

At this point, the ship was likely sailing on Curry’s pro golf prospects. But he and his fans still have a way to see him compete against the best players in the world for big prizes on the PGA Tour.


Steph a surprise addition to PGA Tour 2K23

As announced by the folks at 2K Sports on Monday, Stephen Curry will be a playable character in the upcoming PGA Tour 2K23 video game. The baller will be available to players as a free download when the game launches on October 14.

The developers weren’t just throwing a Steph skin on a Joe Blow character model, either. Curry’s avatar will be draped with precision in Under Armor gear and have the same smooth swing that saw him nail a 97 meter eagle kick at the American Century Championship a few months ago.

Additionally, players will finally be able to play their Steph vs. Michael Jordan dream matches; His Airness has also been added to the 2K23 mix as a downloadable golfer.

Pitching the two against each other in-game might not do much to settle the aforementioned hardwood GOAT debate, but it promises to be a memorable gaming experience nonetheless. Whether or not the Dubs cornerstone will be able to fire off a “night, night” taunt – like he can now in NBA 2K23 – after beating Jordan remains to be seen.

For his part, Steph was thrilled to see himself on the links of the 2K clip broadcast. He was particularly impressed that the 2K team so accurately described his beard game:


Steph has worked to make golf more accessible to everyone

Earlier this year, Curry officially launched the Underrated golf tour with the goal of “increasing participation among competitive golfers from diverse communities” – particularly at the youth level – “and having them play hand-in-hand with their peers who currently represent the vast majority of golfers in today”.

To that end, events were held in Chicago, Phoenix, Houston and Tampa throughout the summer to identify the top 24 boys and girls to compete for the Curry Cup on the season-ending tour championship. at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco.

In the end, it was Ashley Shaw of Litchfield Park, Arizona, and Roman Solomon of Sarasota, Florida who took home the top honors in their respective divisions.
