NBA Superstar Stephen Curry is known for making some terrific shots on the hardwood, but he did the same on the fairway on Sunday. The two-time MVP drained an Eagle on the 18th hole to win the American Century Championship in dramatic fashion on Sunday.

Just a day earlier, the three-point specialist showed his range and accuracy with the club, by draining a hole-in-one. Following that awesome ace, on the pro-ams final day, Steph Curry earned a ‘buzzer beater’ victory on 18 at the Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course to beat Mardy Fish.
Curry came to the final tee box down three points to Fish as the pair began the last hole of the tournament. It was a long shot for Steph Curry, as Fish was positioned to secure his third win at the ACC. That’s when he found himself in a position to nail a long putt for the ‘fourth quarter comeback’.
As he has done so many times behind the arc, he sank it, winning 75-73 and the $125,000 winner’s share.
Steph Curry’s reaction afterward was almost as emotional as any of the four NBA Championships he has won with Golden State. Clearly, he’s as much a competitor on the course as he is on the court, and it showed in his comments.
“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 after the tournament. “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.”
Steph Curry was drafted by the Warriors with the seventh overall pick in 2009 and has developed into a generational talent in the NBA’s modern era. Considered by many to be the greatest outside shooter of all time, Curry has averaged 24.6 points per game in his 14-year career.
