Steph Curry leads after Day 1 of Lake Tahoe celebrity golf tournament

Steph Curry celebrating a made shot before it goes in is always fun in basketball.

And, as we learned Friday, it’s fun to see on the golf course, too.

Thanks in part to draining a sensational twisting-and-turning birdie putt on the 12th hole, Curry ended the first round of the three-day American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament on the shores of Lake Tahoe at the very top of the leaderboard.

Curry’s approach shot on the par-3 12th left him about 40 feet from the hole and up on a ridge. But the basketball sharpshooter displayed some finesse on the golf course, hitting his putt away from the hole and letting it ride the groove of the ridge straight into the cup.

On the Peacock broadcast, Curry was seen walking away from the putt and didn’t even look as the ball went into the hole, displaying the same prescient sense that he so often shows on the basketball court.

While the putt on the 12th was the highlight, the most important part of his ascent to the top of the star-studded field was his scorching hot start, scoring back-to-back birdies on the second and third holes, followed by an eagle on the par-5 fourth.
