Steph Curry Is Setting Basketball Aside To Pursue His True Passion Golf

DDazsbjVwAA-HRg

Steph Curry is pretty good at basketball. Curry is a two-time NBA champion and an unanimous MVP winner. He is one of the best basketball players and probably the best pure shooter in the game today. Well it appears as if Curry has another passion off of the court. It was announced yesterday that Curry has accepted an exemption to play professional golf at the Ellie Mae Classic on the web.com tour. Curry will be showing off his golf skills on August 3-6. Here’s what people had to say about Curry’s newest endeavor off of the court.

 

Apparently there is a few people out there who are upset that Curry is getting this exemption to play golf on the web.com tour because he is taking the spot of someone who is really trying to make it into professional golf and could really use a break like this. This isn't the first time something like this has happened. Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo got a chance to play professional golf as well. But I get it. I wasn't too pleased with Tim Tebow getting a chance to play professional baseball. But this is the world we live in. It's not about how good you are. It's about who you know and about how big of a draw you are. A no name baseball player like myself who has worked their whole life to try to break into professional baseball isn't going to sell tickets. But someone by the name of Tim Tebow puts butts in seats. The first thing that my accounting professor said to our class in college was "Cash is king." It's not fair but it is true. Money drives everything in our world today. Hell, it's pretty much the only reason why the Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor fight is happening in August. So that is why Steph Curry is getting this exemption to play professional golf instead of Average Joe. Because Steph Curry is a draw. Because Steph Curry playing golf gets people talking about it. Because Steph Curry will sell more tickets to this tournament. If the dollars make sense, it makes sense. That's it.
