Steph Curry loses his mind after acing 7th hole at ACC Championship

15 July 2023

Stop if you’ve heard this before but Steph Curry is dialed in from deep, however, this time with a short iron in his hand.

The Golden State Warriors superstar aced the 152-yard seventh hole at the American Century Celebrity Golf Tournament on Saturday afternoon in Lake Tahoe.

It was Curry’s second career ace yet you’d never guess that watching his exuberant celebration. The two-time NBA MVP tossed his hat and sprinted up the fairway even running past his ball in the cup.

Curry’s ace was the first of the ACC Championship. He received six points for the stroke of brilliance and continued to lead the tournament late into Saturday afternoon after being at the top of the leaderboard Friday.

The unique point system — perhaps to avoid seeing some ugly numbers from celebs and athletes alike — awards one point for pars, three points for birdies and six points for eagles. Double bogeys or worse are two-point deductions.

Tennis player Mardy Fish has been on Curry’s tail throughout the afternoon with other notable names such as former Red Sox and current broadcaster Kevin Millar, football Hall of Famers Marshall Faulk and Brian Urlacher nearing the top of the leaderboard. Now notable broadcasters and golf figures John Smoltz and Tony Romo are also in contention.

The tournament will conclude play on Sunday with Curry seeking his first career championship on the links. Luckily, the all-time leader in three-pointers has four NBA championships to lean on for experience.
