They say shooters shoot, and NBA superstar Stephen Curry is showing that his shot isn’t just deadly on the basketball court.
A day after Curry hit a hole-in-one at the American Century Championship, he made another impressive shot to win the whole thing.
On the 18th hole, Curry hit a clutch eagle to secure the win at the annual celebrity golf tournament and send the crowd into a frenzy.
The Golden State Warriors point guard threw his hat into the air in celebration before running toward the crowd in excitement.
“I’ve always dreamt of a situation like this on an 18th green in front of a crowd like that to make a putt,” Curry told NBC Sports. “You just stick to the routine. Have so much confidence in yourself and live with the results. Thankfully it went in, which is insane. Been playing in this thing for almost a decade and to finally get a win it’s pretty special.”
Curry said that hitting a game-winning shot in an NBA game was a similar feeling to hitting the eagle on 18 to win the tournament.
The small difference was the fact that he had a little more time to think about the shot.
The hooper is the first active athlete to win the tournament since 2000 when Al Del Greco won the American Century Championship.
Curry also became just the second basketball player to win the annual golf tournament.
Curry finished ahead of Mardy Fish, Joe Pavelski, Mark Mulder and Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Former Yankees CC Sabathia and Roger Clemens and former Nets star Vince Carter were also among the contingent of local stars that were out at the tournament held at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course in Nevada.
Curry’s victory on Sunday dethroned the 2022 champion, Tony Romo.
