National Basketball Association (NBA) champion and Golden State Warriors all-star guard Stephen Curry is relishing playing in the Tour’s Ellie Mae Classic at TPC Stonebrae in California, USA for a second consecutive year.

The ninth annual Ellie Mae Classic will be contested the week of August 6-12.

Curry made his Tour debut at the event’s 2017 edition, posting rounds of 74-74—148 (8-over) while drawing tournament-record crowds at host TPC Stonebrae.

For 2018, Curry will again maintain his amateur status in the event and will compete on an unrestricted sponsor exemption.

“The players on the Tour welcomed me with open arms in 2017, and it was an amazing experience to play with up-and-coming PGA TOUR stars inside the ropes at TPC Stonebrae,” said Curry on Warriors’ website.

“I have been fortunate to be a member of an incredible team in the Golden State Warriors, and I was elated to feel that same level of camaraderie onsite last year.

“Golf is a game that has provided wonderful experiences in my life, and I am excited to return to the Ellie Mae Classic in August.”
