Not all golfers though share the same sentiment.
After the second round of the Quicken Loans National, world No. 135, Harold Varner III, a friend of the NBA Champion, spoke to CSN about the matter.
"I think its sad that a few players think that it is taking someone else's spot, but you're not in the tournament director's shoes to be able to make that decision."
A sponsor’s exemption was the reasoning behind Curry's acceptance to the Ellie Mae Classic in August.
It is an event that benefits the Warriors Community Foundation.

It is also important to note, the Web.com Tour is a second-tier tour for the PGA Tour, essentially a minor-league. Curry is not competing at a major event. The combined prize pot is $600,000. To put into perspective, the Quicken Loans National champion's payout this weekend is $1.2 million.
"I just hope he takes it all in. Its going to be a neat experience for him" Varner said. "I'm going to be pulling for him.
Curry will have a two-stroke handicap on the TPC Stonebrae course in Hayward, California when the event tees off August 3.
