Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry amazed golf fans when he hit a fantastic shot ahead of the ‘The Match,’ which will take place on June 29.
The event will feature players from both the NFL and NBA including Curry and Klay Thompson of the 2021-22 champion Golden State Warriors, and Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce of the Super Bowl LVII-winning Kansas City Chiefs.
It will be the second appearance in The Match for both Mahomes and Curry. Mahomes and Josh Allen lost last summer against Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady, while Curry and Peyton Manning lost to Phil Mickelson and Charles Barkley in 2020.
Curry – who has become known as a skilled golfer when not focused on basketball – hit a shot from a long distance away from the hole, that landed just past the pin before rolling down the green and into the heart of the cup.
Some fans were so impressed by the shot that they went as far as to dub Curry ‘the greatest shooter in all sports.’

Some fans were so impressed they dubbed Curry ‘the greatest shooter in all sports’
One social media user joked, Bro hit a half court shot in golf,’ while another added, ‘This guy is definitely God’s favorite.’
Other were left amazed by his skills as one chimed in, ‘Is this man just a goat in everything he does dang lol.’ And another asked: ‘Is there ANY shot he can’t make!?’
While even those who aren’t fans of his skills on the court begrudgingly admitted he was one of the greats. ‘That’s why he’s the goat and I’m not even a Curry fan to begin with,’ said another Twitter user.
The 35-year-old Curry delivered another season that solidified his place as one of the greatest shooters the NBA has ever seen after he shot .427 percent from beyond the arch, while also averaging 29.4 points, 6.3 assists, and 6.1 rebounds.
The Golden State Warriors guard left social media in awe with his golfing skills
His Warriors team put together another solid season after that saw them advance to the Western Conference Semifinals before they suffered an upset defeat at the hands of the Los Angeles Lakers.
While Curry has been busy hitting quality golf shots, Golden State has been busy working to retool the roster in the hopes of chasing another NBA title.
The Warriors recently pulled off a blockbuster trade to acquire multi-time All-NBA point guard Chris Paul that sent Jordan Poole heading the other way to the Washington Wizards.
Golden State is also said to have ‘strong confidence’ that they can re-sign Draymond Green to a multi-year deal.
