They say shooters shoot, and NBA star Stephen Curry shows his shots aren’t lethal on the basketball court.
The day after Curry hit a one-hole punch at the American Century Championship, he made another great putt to win the whole thing.
On the 18th hole, Carey hit an eagle claw to secure the win at the annual Celebrity Golf Tournament and sent the crowd into a frenzy.
The Golden State Warriors guard threw his cap in the air in celebration before running into the crowd in excitement.
“I’ve always dreamed of a situation like this on the 18th green in front of a crowd like that to make a shot,” he said. Curry told NBC Sports. “You just stick to a routine. Have great confidence in yourself and live with the results. Luckily I got in, which was crazy. I’ve been playing this thing for almost a decade now, and to finally get a win, it’s so special.”
Hitting a game-winning shot in an NBA game, Curry said, felt similar to hitting an eagle on the 18th to win the championship.
The only difference was the fact that he had more time to think about the shot.
Hooper is the first active athlete to win the championship since 2000 when Al Del Greco won the American Century Championship.
Curry also became the second basketball player to win the annual golf tournament.
Curry finished ahead of Mardy Fish, Joe Pavelski, Mark Mulder, and Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Yankees CC Sabathia, Roger Clemens and former Nets star Vince Carter were among the host of homegrown stars who took part in the tournament at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course in Nevada.
On Sunday, Curry defeated 2022 champion Tony Romo.
