There has been a major shakeup in golf sponsorships since the end of the PGA TOUR season with many players moving on from their longtime gear in favor of greener pastures. Well now, a new development looks to shakeup that landscape even more.
We all know that NBA star Stephen Curry is a talented golfer. That was made evidently clear by his relatively strong showing at the Ellie Mae Classic this year. But his love for golf apparently won’t stop with playing in tournaments.
Curry, along with NBA player and fellow golfer Andre Iguodala, joined the Winging It podcast this week, which is run by two other NBA players Kent Bazemore and Vince Carter. The two bring on guests to talk about the NBA but since they are also avid golfers, golf becomes a focal point of their podcast as well. And golf certainly took center stage on the podcast this week.

The four were talking about setting up a foursome together in the future and then delved into talking about the style of some PGA TOUR professionals. Carter brought up how Gary Woodland would be leaving Under Armour but Steph was quick to state that it was ok because his golf line would be coming out next year. That’s right, the NBA superstar looks like he’ll be bringing out some golf gear for the new year.
There aren’t many clues to how Steph’s apparel and gear would look but the one certainty is that if he were to drop a golf line, it would be with Under Armour. Steph has been with UA for years and has already created five different signature shoes with the company. But unfortunately, Under Armour would not confirm that a golf style is coming for Curry. If you believe his remarks on the podcast though, it looks like a real thing.
It’s interesting that a NBA star would bring out a golf line of his own but many should be excited about it. Because if Steph brings the flare that he has on the court to a golf line, that’s something that will really get the golf world excited and drive even more fans to the sport.
Keep an eye out next year to see if Curry Golf ends up coming out.
