Stephen Curry has several reasons to boast about his aiming skills. From shooting threes to half-court shots at will, Curry has frequently displayed why he is one of the greatest shooters of all time. However, basketball is not the only sport where Curry often hits the bullseye; he is also very fond of golf.

He plays that as a luxurious habit and not professionally. We call this habit a luxury because he only plays with an exclusive group of people. This includes the former President of the United States, Mr. Barack Obama.

When Stephen Curry appeared on the Ellen Show with the former first lady, Michelle Obama, they revealed he had played golf with Barack Obama.

However, while he could reveal that he played with him, he could not reveal the reason why he lost to Mr. Obama in the previous two times they played. Moreover, Michelle Obama even confirmed that he plays better than her husband.

He still refused to disclose the President’s handicap and said, “I was told not to disclose that information on our president. That’s top secret. I’m acting like secret service so that’s top secret.”

Other than playing golf, Curry is also an ardent fan of the sport. Therefore, he joined Michael Jordan to watch the Ryder Cup this season. It does not seem like a matter of coincidence that two of the greatest players to ever play basketball also like golf.
