Watch Warriors' Steph Curry adorably teach son Canon to golf on beach

The thing Steph Curry probably loves more than basketball is his family … and golf. Golf is probably a close second, but the man is obsessed with the game. So what happens when the Warriors’ superstar introduces his son Canon to it?

Well, cuteness … obviously.

I know, it’s the cutest thing you will see today.

Curry will be playing once again in the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament this weekend in Lake Tahoe. It’ll be his eighth appearance, to give you a sense of how much he loves it.

We could all assume Steph is looking forward to the day both he and Canon could truly enjoy the greens together. He’s obsessed with the game. So much so, he would think about it during basketball.

"I think I think about golf too much -- and that's a problem,” he said in an episode of "Stephen vs The Game." “Like, during a game, yeah. The game of golf just gets under my skin.”

Steph might not have touched a club until the age of 10, which is well after he started toying around on the court, but he excelled at it per usual.

Still, he admitted he was “haunted” by the game -- a notion his wife Ayesha mentioned.

Either way, this important aspect of his life will be exciting to hand down to young Canon.

Ayesha Curry's success a product of far more than marriage to Steph

Ayesha Curry has made a name for herself.

The 31-year-old is a cookbook author and restauranteur who also has cookware, bedding and a wine label under her name. Curry also launched a quarterly magazine, Sweet July, which Forbes' Brianne Garrett reported Friday aims "to be a platform for business owners and creatives of color," and she has appeared on multiple cooking shows.

She also is a mother of three and married to Warriors superstar Steph Curry, having heard others' thinly-veiled sexist doubts owing her success entirely to her husband's influence. Ayesha freely admits her marriage undoubtedly helped her get opportunities, as Steph is one of the most popular athletes on the planet.

Yet Ayesha Curry, not Steph, was the one who made the most of those chances.

“Were doors opened for me because of him? Absolutely," she told Garrett. "But I had to be the one who walked through them, prove myself and stay in the room to be there. If that wasn't the case, everybody else would be there, too.”

Ayesha Curry launched a food blog and YouTube channel, both titled Little Lights of Mine, in 2014. The blog began as a way of sharing recipes with friends and family, but viral success -- including a video referencing a certain Drake rhyme involving her husband and a cooking appliance -- on YouTube ensured her reach extended well beyond that. Curry's YouTube channel currently has over 575,000 subscribers as of this writing.

Amid those accomplishments, Curry's not shy to admit that the support of her husband, family and friends helped her succeed as an entrepreneur.

“I hate when people make it seem like they’re just doing it all themselves,” Curry told Garrett. “It’s not realistic.”  

That perspective is one that many people in business and beyond should take to heart.

Ayesha Curry's passion for peaceful protest comes from her children

Ayesha Curry and her husband Steph have been visible at recent protests in the Bay Area following the death of 46-year-old George Floyd in police custody on May 25.

The wife of the Warriors star took to Instagram on Sunday to explain why she and Steph have been so direct about showing support for the cause against systemic racism and police brutality.

"The kids are watching, listening and learning. What will you have them retain? Let’s get it right for them so they don’t have to for their children," Curry wrote.

Steph also was seen kneeling during a protest last week organized by Warriors teammate Juan Toscano-Anderson.

The Currys understand how important their voice is, and are trying to use their platform to help promote change.
