The greatest basketball shooter to ever live is possibly Steph Curry.
But there is no denying the fact that he is also a superb golfer.
Curry sunk a hole-in-one on the par-3 7th hole on Saturday during the American Century Championship at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course on Lake Tahoe.
Curry’s tee shot from 153 yards took one bounce and fell into the hole, emulating the countless three-pointers he has made throughout his career.
He gave a priceless reaction.
At the seventh hole, Curry ran down the fairway as if the Golden State Warriors had just won their fifth NBA Championship thanks to him.
Curry joked to NBC’s Roger Maltbie after his ace fell, “154 yards is a little longer than 94 feet on a basketball court.” For the remainder of the day, I’ll have trouble breathing, but for good reason.
Players gain points based on their performance in a modified Stableford style for the American Century Championship.
Birdies score three points, and eagles get six points since the structure favors aggressive play.
Eight points are awarded for holes in ones.
As a result, Curry, who was in the lead going into Saturday’s second round, received eight additional points to put him in a ten-point lead.
The future NBA Hall-of-Famer seemed to be in complete control of the title thanks in large part to his hole-in-one.
Curry had 43 points after his ace at the seventh hole, and Mardy Fish was alone in second place with 34 points at the time of this writing.
