The two-time NBA MVP finished 4-over 74 during the first round of the Web.com Tour's Ellie Mae Classic near San Francisco.

That's high praise, indeed, coming from guys who know what the pressure of golf's biggest stages can do to a player. 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.

The tournament is a four-day event, with the finalists to be determined after their combined numbers from the first three rounds, with a cut off score needed to be beaten in order to move on.

Stephen Curry, shown here on Thursday, missed the cut in the Ellie Mae Classic at TCP Stonebrae. Sam Ryder, who won the Pinnacle Bank Championship two weeks ago, shot a 75.

"It was an unbelievable experience, and to shoot two 74s, I'll take that", Curry said (via USA Today).

Curry also execute a Spieth special when he told his caddie "go get that" after a birdie. "Obviously as a competitor you can always play better, so hopefully I can do that tomorrow".

Curry has said in the past, that if he did not play basketball he would have played golf professionally. "I'm pretty happy with it".

However, Curry earned the plaudits from many of golf's leading lights after shooting a second successive 74 at the Web.com Tour event, in California.

Curry bogeyed two of the first three holes on Friday and shot a 39 on a 3-hour front nine.

Curry had a rough start Friday, posting bogeys on four of the first eight holes, but settled down to par the next five before getting up and down out of a bunker for birdie on No. 14.

"I think it's pretty special for a two-time MVP to be able to shoot 74 at a pro event and beat other pros", said major victor Jason Day.

"It could have been all those 80, 90 talks I heard going into the tournament".
