GOLF.COM NOVEMBER 2019 / VOLUME 61, ISSUE 11 One-on-One with Stephen Curry When six-time NBA All-Star Stephen Curry isn’t draining threes, he can often be found draining putts. In an exclusive sit-down with GOLF senior writer Alan Shipnuck, Curry dishes on his passion for golf, facing off with Jordan Spieth and why playing in a mini tour event felt like the NBA Finals. Check out Shipnuck’s profile on page 68, then head to GOLF.com for video of our day with the sweet-swinging superstar. Listen Up, Golf Fans The Drop Zone is a weekly podcast hosted by resident young journos Sean Zak and Dylan Dethier.

a tale of two heroes

THOUGH I’M A DYED-IN-THE-WOOL LAKERS GUY, I’m excited to see Golden Star Warrior and two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry on this month’s cover. It’s not every day we feature something or someone other than a PGA Tour pro, golf course or piece of equipment from the likes of Callaway, TaylorMade or Titleist on GOLF’s front page. In fact, the last time we did was September 2009, in an installment celebrating golfer-athletes across all sports. For that issue, Matt Ryan, then the Atlanta Falcons’ second-year QB, graced the cover. I like Matt and, funny enough, he appears again in this issue, lauded as one of the NFL’s top-five golfers in a study of the lowest handicaps spread among active participants in the Big Four sports, but that 2009 issue felt a…

where i left my heart

In perusing your September issue, I was transported upon seeing a picture of Lincoln Park, one of the Bay Area munis profiled by Josh Sens (“View from the Bridge”). I have many happy memories playing that course, as well as Harding Park (at $19 a round!), and sipping single-malts served by my old friend Billy Smith at Gleneagles. For years I lived within walking distance of Sharp Park, too. Thank you from the bottom of this aging golfer’s heart (I’m 77, and still determined to shoot my age) for this walk down memory lane. Rounds in the Bay Area are long gone, but not ever to be forgotten. —Rick Dubin, Stockton, Calif. Putt for Dough! Thank you so much for the article about Tiger Woods’ putting technique, “The Most Repeatable Stroke in…

“I wanted to try to blend my personality, my joy, my style off the court into a golf capsule.”—STEPHEN CURRY Stop, drop and… drive the golf ball. Under Armour’s new Curry 6 Golf SL shoe ($160) highlights NBA superstar Stephen Curry’s SC30 Range Unlimited Golf Collection. The design combines a knit upper with a spikeless version of the UA Golf Rotational Resistance’s midsole/outsole for a fusion of Curry’s two favorite sports. The tongue features his signature three-finger salute, a motif showcased throughout the 14-piece collection, which also includes trucker hats and apparel. (Available at underarmour.com)…

between clubs

IF YOU WERE WALKING DOWN the main drag in Portrush during this year’s Open Championship, you might have glimpsed a gent playing his guitar on a hotel balcony, cheered on by a crowd below. This evoked the iconography of both the Beatles and U2, but there was something else familiar about the scene: the bald guy belting out the soulful rock songs. Perhaps you remember him from his fifth-place finish at the Tour Championship on the Canadian Tour or performing with Darius Rucker at “Monday After the Masters.” You might have spotted him shooting 62 at the Goslings Invitational in Bermuda or making his guitar (and a few overserved buddies) weep around a firepit at Bandon Dunes. Wasn’t he the same dude who won the Met Open all those years…

chez reavie

The winner of this year’s Travelers doesn’t get out much (blame Netflix), but when he does… What’s your idea of a perfect day? It would involve a beach and margaritas. What’s the strangest thing you’ve seen on a golf course? Probably in Phoenix [at the Waste Management Phoenix Open]: some fist-fights, some drunken people throwing up on themselves. Your most embarrassing moment on a golf course? My first PGA Tour event in Las Vegas. I was leading after two rounds and I made a 13 on the 16th hole, the par 5. I hit, like, five balls in the lake. We’re giving you a career mulligan. What shot would you like to have over again? I lost to Webb Simpson in a playoff [at the 2011 Deutsche Bank Championship]. But before the playoff, all I needed was to…
