Stephen Curry obsesses over golf in middle of Warriors games, and here’s why

Stephen Curry obsesses over golf in middle of Warriors games, and here’s why

Stephen Curry was 10 when he picked up a golf club for the first time. 

"Golf's a big part of my life, and it started with my dad," the Warriors star said in his new Facebook docuseries "Stephen vs The Game,” which debuted Thursday on the social media platform.

Steph's new series highlights everything about his life past and present, and it also shows he has a special relationship with the game of golf. Some of the footage, besides baby Curry who still required a pacifier, was that of his dad, Dell, from back in the day playing a round, with commentators saying Dell swings a club like he shoots 3-pointers.

"Smooth nice and smooth," they said.

Fast forward to the American Century Championship, and Dell's still got it. And the two participate in the tournament together every year in Tahoe, with a bet to seal the deal by the time it's over.

"Nice shot, Pops," Steph said in the background as Dell took a swing. 

Steph really loves his golf ... perhaps too much.

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

He'll even find himself thinking about a swing tip when he's on the Warriors’ bench. 

"It's not good," Curry added. "I'm haunted by it -- that's what my wife says."

The relationship he has with golf also connects him to Tiger Woods -- someone he looks up to outside of basketball.

"I've never seen a killer instinct like that, where you know you're the best, but still searching for perfection,” he said.

And he's right. Despite winning every golf championship you can imagine, Woods always tries to improve something. It’s a trait that inspires Curry, who appreciates Tiger "never being satisfied."

It's a behavior Steph copies himself. His mom, Sonya, said there are moments when she's noticed Steph getting bored on the court. Those are the moments when she swaps looks with Dell, and they know something is about to happen.

Steph too is never satisfied and wants to change up something. And whatever he's doing, it's working for him. 

Warriors GM Bob Myers discusses high school Hall of Fame induction

Warriors GM Bob Myers discusses high school Hall of Fame induction

Believe it or not, Warriors general manager Bob Myers was once the worst player on his basketball team. That was at UCLA, but in his defense, he was one of the stand-outs in high school.

He was a star for the Monte Vista Mustangs and was recently part of the first Athletic Hall of Fame class.

Before the dinner honoring the group of inductees, he told his kids that he was being honored for being a good player, and they poked fun at him as they were confused about him being referred to as a talented athlete.

"But I'm in man, I got in -- they can't take it away," Myers told NBC Sports Bay Area's Bob Fitzgerald and Kelenna Azubuike during Friday's Warriors-Lakers telecast. 

His former school honored him with a plaque that he's sporting on his dashboard. He also got a license plate frame.

Fitzgerald said he will be calling Myers "Hall of Famer" for the rest of the year.

Suppose that means it was worth it.

Warriors GM Bob Myers breaks down what Marquese Chriss brings to team

Marquese Chriss hasn't wasted any time adjusting to the Warriors after being acquired in October.

"He's done a nice job, he's played in the five -- I don't think he's played a ton of five, screen-setting, just the littlest things," general manager Bob Myers told NBC Sports Bay Area's Bob Fitzgerald and Kelenna Azubuike during Friday's Warriors-Lakers telecast. "Changing his angle on the screens, he's learned to play off these guys."

"Sometimes you need a bit of a wakeup call to just start doing the little things."

The little things the big man has been working on stretch beyond his playing ability. Young Chriss, at just 22 years old, has already been on four teams in three years if you include the Dubs.

When he was brought in, he was viewed as someone to not only make an impact now but down the line.

The team hadn't had a high draft pick in several years and to get someone of his age and caliber is the perfect addition to the roster as Kerr explained after acquiring Chriss

Chriss looks forward to making a comeback after being plagued with a history of injuries. And the Warriors appear to be happy with the gamble they took. But time will tell.
