Along with wondering how well Steph Curry, playing in the Web.com Tour’s Ellie Mae Classic on a sponsor’s exemption, would fare in his debut playing among professionals, many golf fans wanted to know what was in his bag as he took on TPC Stonebrae. As it turns out, lots of Callaway with a little bit of Titleist equipment sprinkled in.
The NBA superstar, who shot a respectable 74 in the opening round, was fit for the clubs last summer when he visited the Ely Callaway Performance Center. He also had his wedges customized by Anthony Taranto, having his MD2 Milled wedges personalized with the blue and gold colors of the Golden State Warriors, their team slogan of “Lock In” and his wife and daughter’s names stamped on his 60-degree wedge.
After a shaky start in which his opening tee shot found a spectators drink cup holder, Curry recovered and played well. “It was an amazing experience,” Curry said after finishing his round. “I’ve been looking forward to this ever since I found out and to finally hit my first shot in tournament play was a really, really nervous moment, but it was everything I hoped for. If you told me I was going to shoot 74 I would take that all day, every day. … As a competitor, you feel like you can always play better. So hopefully I can do that tomorrow.”
