Stephen Curry Hole-in-One

Stephen Curry, the star player of the Golden State Warriors, amazed the crowd with a stunning hole-in-one this Saturday at the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament.

Excitement reached fever pitch when Curry, renowned for his distant shots on the basketball court, managed to sink the ball into the hole from 152 yards on the par-3 seventh hole at Edgewood Tahoe. His celebration was a sight to behold – he tore off his cap, held up a finger in triumph, and sprinted to the hole, slapping the flag akin to an athlete at the finishing line.

“Talk about an extraordinary moment,” Curry commented. “When I hit the ball, I felt it was a good shot aiming right at the pin, but one never really anticipates a hole-in-one even with a perfect shot. The moment I saw hands waving and cheering, it was a euphoric blur.”

The eight-pointer ace was pivotal in helping Curry keep the lead in the modified Stableford event, placing him three points ahead of Dallas Stars’ Joe Pavelski and former tennis ace Mardy Fish. In the event, players gain a point for par, three for a birdie, and six for an eagle, while losing two points for a double bogey or worse.

Following a round that earned him 23 points, Curry’s total stands at 50. Fish, the 2020 winner, gained 29 points, while Pavelski added 24 to his tally.

This achievement marked Curry’s second career hole-in-one, also being the fifth in the history of the tournament.

“When the ball landed and just disappeared, it was a spectacle to witness,” Pavelski noted. “We tried reaching out to Steph, but he was caught up in his celebration. He certainly has some speed!”

Mark Mulder, a three-time winner, and actor Jack Wagner, a two-time winner at 63 years of age, tied for the fourth position with 38 points each.

Golf legend from the LPGA Tour, Annika Sorenstam, tied for the eighth place with 34 points.

Previous champion Tony Romo, who also clinched the title in 2018 and 2019, tied for the 12th position with 32 points, along with Aaron Rodgers. Pat Mahomes stood 57th with a single point, while Charles Barkley was at the 81st place in the 93-player tournament with a score of minus-23.
