Steph Curry meets Scott Harrington, whom he gave $25K for wife's cancer fight

Steph Curry's appearance at the Safeway Open Pro-Am on Wednesday in Napa included a meeting that was a year in the making.

The Warriors star donated $25,000 in August 2018 to a GoFundMe page for Jenn Harrington, the wife of professional golfer Scott Harrington, who was battling Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Harrington's cancer now is in remission, and her husband finally met Curry on Wednesday at the Silverado Resort and Spa Course, 13 months after his donation. 

What an awesome moment.

"This is crazy, full circle," Curry said before taking a picture with Harrington. 

Curry's donation helped the Harringtons exceed their initial $150,000 fund-raising goal, and the couple donated subsequent funds raised to the Children's Cancer Association in Portland.

Scott Harrington took a leave from the Korn Ferry Tour last year in order to care for Jenn, but he returned to the tour in 2019. Last month, he officially earned his first PGA Tour card by finishing in the top 25 of the Korn Ferry Tour's money list. 

Harrington will tee off Thursday at the Safeway Open at 1:35 p.m. PT. When he does, he surely will have Curry's support.

Steph Curry, Phil Mickelson form star pairing at Safeway Open Pro-Am

It's no secret Steph Curry loves golf, and the Warriors star held his own against one of the sport's best Wednesday during the Safeway Open Pro-Am. 

Playing in a foursome with five-time major champion Phil Mickelson, Curry eagled the 10th hole at the Silverado Resort course in Napa. It was part of the two-time NBA MVP's strong day with the driver. 

Mickelson gave Curry some tips on the course, and Curry apparently returned the favor. Lefty took a page out of his partner's book, replicating his signature shimmy. 

It has been a big month-and-a-half for Curry on the golf course. Curry announced in August that he would fund the golf program at Howard University, a historically black institution, for six years, as part of a larger effort to make golf more inclusive and accessible outside of affluent country clubs. The 31-year-old also hosted his annual charity golf tournament earlier this month.

But with the Warriors beginning training camp next week, is Curry ready to get back on the court? 

Seems fair to say he is. 

Steph Curry unveils new Under Armour 'Range Unlimited' golf collection

Steph Curry unveils new Under Armour 'Range Unlimited' golf collection

Steph Curry loves the game of basketball, but he loves golf just as much.

The two-time NBA MVP is an avid golfer and cares passionately about the game, with a strong desire to bring diversity to the sport. The Warriors star recently announced his plan to fund the golf teams at Howard University, and he and his wife Ayesha teamed up with PGA REACH to host the Steph Curry Charity Classic, presented by Workday, on Monday.

The proceeds went toward PGA REACH and Curry's "Eat. Learn. Play." foundation.

Not only is Curry an ambassador for the game, but he also has been working on his own line of golf apparel with Under Armour. The Range Unlimited line officially dropped Monday, and it's hit and miss, to be sure.

You can look at the entire collection here.

The UA Range Unlimited Iso-Chill Polo, seen in the top left picture, also comes in white with gray accents and both are super clean. The shoes also are pretty slick. 

Now, let's talk about the shirt with the flowers and plants on it. It's just got to go. Sure, Steph can pull it off, but for the rest of us, there's zero chance of that happening.

There's also a polo with a giant vertical stripe down the middle, which also is pretty horrific looking.

Still, as far as golf collections go, Curry's isn't bad, and surely the next wave will be even better.
