Stephen Curry misses cut at Web.com event after rough second day

Stephen Curry is one of the three best basketball players walking the face of the earth.

The fact that he can still hold his head above water against professional golfers is impressive. For the second year in a row, he got an invite to the Ellie Mae Classic at TPC Stonebrae. On Thursday he shot a respectable one-over-par 71. However, he struggled on the second day — despite a couple of beautiful shots — and posted an 86, missing the cut.

Curry missed the cut for the second straight year at this event after a very rough second round. That’s one of the things about golf — consistency. It’s elusive. It requires a lot of time on the range, on the course, and a lot of mental discipline. Which is all easy to talk about, but if you have to step up your NBA game too… Curry did as well as could be expected.
