After two-time National Basketball Association champion Stephen Curry received a sponsor's exemption to participate in the Web.com Tour's Ellie Mae Classic, some golf die-hards felt it was wrong to guarantee a spot in the field to a part-time golfer. Even if he plays a spectacular round, it's tough to imagine him keeping pace with people who golf week in and week out to make a living.

Curry, who shot a four-over 74 in his first round on Thursday, followed that up with another four-over 74 on Friday, finishing with an eight-over 148 through two rounds.

He pulled his opening tee shot left, where it came to rest in the cup-holder of a golf cart.

The Golden State guard, a two-time National Basketball Association champion and most valuable player, hit five bogeys as well as double bogey on the par-four fifth hole on Thursday. I know for a fact he was the happiest person at TPC Stonebrae this week getting to watch me tee it up on this stage. He made two birdies on the back nine but finished with another bogey on his closing hole at the Stonebrae course in Hayward, California.

Curry began his round on the back nine and was 2-over 37 at the turn, where he eagerly accepted a bag of fast food chicken for lunch.

Israeli police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld said reinforcements have been deployed in and around the Old City. Abbas called the measures "falsely presented as a security measure to take control over Al-Aqsa mosque".


"It was an unbelievable experience, and to shoot two 74s, I'll take that", said Curry, who will nearly assuredly miss the cut at the event held in Hayward, Calif.

"I think he certainly beat most everybody's expectations but I don't think that really surprised him", fellow Under Armour athlete Spieth said.

With so many cameras clicking, cheers and whistles moments after he struck the ball and hundreds of supporters in No. 30 shirts and Warriors gear, this was no doubt a "Strength In Numbers" kind of day.

Here's how Steph Curry played in his second round on Friday.

. It was almost impossible for him to lose a ball. Coming into the tournament, Curry had +900 odds to make the cut and -2500 to miss it according to some sports books.

"Unbelievable gallery out here", Curry said.
