Steph Curry to return to Tour’s Ellie Mae Classic for second year in a row

Steph Curry is getting a second crack at the Tour.

Coming off yet another NBA championship with the Golden State Warriors superteam, the two-time NBA MVP and three-time NBA champion is returning to the Tour's Ellie Mae Classic at TPC Stonebrae, played the week of the PGA Championship (Aug. 9-12).

Last year, Curry shot a more-than-respectable pair of 74s to miss the cut in the Tour's Bay Area event. Like last year, in 2018 he'll play as an amateur and will get into the event on a sponsor's exemption.

“The players on the Tour welcomed me with open arms in 2017, and it was an amazing experience to play with up-and-coming PGA TOUR stars inside the ropes at TPC Stonebrae,” said Curry. “I have been fortunate to be a member of an incredible team in the Golden State Warriors, and I was elated to feel that same level of camaraderie onsite last year. Golf is a game that has provided wonderful experiences in my life, and I am excited to return to the Ellie Mae Classic in August.”

A year ago, Curry attracted a tremendous amount of attention for the tournament, which was ultimately won by Martin Piller. The year prior, Stephen Jaeger set the Tour single-round and 72-hole scoring records by shooting the first 58 in Tour history and taking the title on a record 30-under 250 total.
