Steph responds to Iguodala's golf game jab before The Match

Warriors

There likely are few people Andre Iguodala has more confidence in on a basketball court than Steph Curry.

But on a golf course? The former Warriors forward isn't as confident, at least not this week.

Ahead of Friday's "The Match: Champions for Change," in which Curry will team up with former NFL star Peyton Manning to take on Charles Barkley and Phil Mickelson, Iguodala admitted he's not picking his former teammate to win.

"I got some inside information," Iguodala said during an interview with Bleacher Report. "His game isn't trending in the right direction, like I said. Hopefully he gets it right soon, because as of today, I'm not betting on him. It's hard for me to bet on him."

Curry always has a response for the doubters, and he playfully fired back at Iguodala's criticism.

"😂😂😂😂 @andre Them little birdies lying to you boss. Keep your circle tighter," Curry wrote in the comments on Bleacher Report's Instagram post.

While basketball is Curry's day job, he has become pretty accomplished with golf clubs in his hands. He took part in the 2018 Ellie Mae Classic At TPC Stonebrae in San Francisco and shot a 17-over (157). He missed the cut, but the result was still impressive for him entering as an amateur.

Curry also takes part in the annual American Century Championship tournament in Lake Tahoe.

While Iguodala doesn't have a lot of confidence in Curry, our partners at PointsBet do.

 

Curry and Manning are -167 favorites to beat Mickelson and Barkley, per PointsBet, meaning you would bet $167 to win $100. Mickelson and Barkley, meanwhile, are listed at +135 (you would win $135 on a $100 bet).

Interestingly, Iguodala will be part of the broadcast for "The Match" on Friday, so he surely will have something to say about how Curry is playing.
