Steph has explained on occasions in the past, how golf has also had a significant impact on his life. He has always understood that sports are based on privilege. Only elite top-tier athletes have a shot in basketball. Therefore, if they are not financially stable this may not be enough on its own.
This is the same case for golf. Additionally, it is considered much more of an elitist sport. It may not require the same skillset as basketball. However, there are many other limitations that prevent athletes from pursuing the sport.
Some of the common reasons are financial status as well as societal and racial status. Thankfully, Steph was from a considerably well-off family. His father was an NBA player. Therefore, he was definitely given more access to golf as a recreational activity.
Curry knows that everyone is not as privileged as him. Additionally, he is also magnanimous enough to acknowledge that people admire and pursue different sports. Therefore, he has always promoted golf alongside basketball.
The NBA Finals approach and it is good that Steph is getting his recreational therapy in. He will need to be at his best for the Golden State Warriors to topple the Boston Celtics.
