In the wake of the Golden State Warriors’ Game 2 loss at home to the Memphis Grizzlies in the NBA’s Western Conference semifinals, league MVP Stephen Curry may be thinking about making backup plans in the event that his Bay Area boys don’t advance beyond this and the next round to the NBA Finals.
Well, Curry has potential plans if his squad comes up short of the championship series. Curry, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, has entered the California State Amateur golf tournament.
If he’s available, Curry would play in the June 1 qualifying tournament at Merced G & C.C., which is the last possible qualifier offered by the Northern California Golf Assoc. Curry might be available if his team wins in this round but not in the conference finals, as the NBA Finals begin June 4.
Were Curry to qualify and able to play, the event is June 22-25 at Lake Merced G.C., which hosted the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic in April.
This wouldn’t be some kind of stunt. Curry plays to a 0.1 handicap index, with scores in the last 10 months ranging from 67 to 87.
