While Stephen Curry is currently leading the Golden State Warriors against the Houston Rockets in the NBA’s Western Conference Finals, he may have a new role in the offseason – hosting a PGA Tour event.
According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, Curry’s representatives at Octagon are working with the PGA Tour to sell marketing and sponsorship deals for the event, which more than likely will be the only event near the Warriors home in Oakland – the Safeway Open in Napa.
“There’s no doubt Stephen Curry brings a young, new, diverse audience to the PGA Tour through his passion for this great game and support for the community,” said PGA Tour spokeswoman Laura Neal to ESPN. “We’re excited about the prospect of partnering with an iconic athlete of his caliber in the future.”
In addition to being a two-time NBA champion, Curry is a scratch golfer. He teed it up last year on the Web.com Tour and shot a very respectable pair of 74s.
The PGA Tour hoped to unveil the revamped 2019 schedule last week at The Players Championship, but a few details are still to be worked out. And it appears one of those might be a superstar athlete hosting his own event.
