SAN FRANCISCO—Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry, took his athletic talents from the basketball court to the golf course in the first annual Stephen Curry Charity Classic. The event transpired on Monday, September 16 at Harding Park Golf Course.
Presented by Workday, the charity tournament was held to help raise money for the Eat. Learn. Play. Foundation and PGA REACH. The foundation is run by Curry and his wife, Ayesha Curry.
According to Curry’s story on the PGA REACH website, he became involved with the charity last year.
“We launched Eat. Learn. Play. earlier this year with an aim to create equal opportunities and bright futures for every child. We believe talent is everywhere, but opportunity is not. Eat. Learn. Play. is committed to unlocking the amazing potential of every child by fighting to end childhood hunger, ensuring universal access to quality education, and enabling healthy and active lifestyles.”
Alongside Steph Curry, a total of 50, two person teams joined him on the course. Teams included athletes like Brandt Snedeker, Andre Iguodala, Suzy Whaley and more.
Curry was on the course debuting his new golf line apparel, Range Unlimited. The goal was to raise $1.3 million during the golf outing. The foundation was able to earn $975,000.
