At the Ryder Cup last weekend, Golden State Warriors player Stephen Curry got the opportunity to meet NBA icon Michael Jordan. Both are basketball superstars with a love for the game of golf. A reporter asked Curry what he had learned the most from Jordan at Monday’s media day session. “I’m not alone in being a maniac about golf,” the Warriors guard joked before explaining.

There’s a lot more than basketball that connects Curry and Jordan. The relationship extends beyond the court and onto the golf course. Curry and Jordan are two of the most feared athletes in the world. They both think it is the most difficult sport to participate in.
Last week at the Ryder Cup, the two spent time together and had an interview-style conversation. Curry inquired as to how Jordan came to be engaged in the sport.
According to The Golf Channel, Jordan stated, “I got into golf because it’s the toughest game to play from a competitive perspective.”
Curry concurred, saying, “Absolutely.”
Jordan said, “I can always react to an opponent – defensive man, offensive player, whatever.” “However, in golf, it’s like playing in a mirror, and you’re always fighting yourself to achieve perfection. Each and every stroke. “Each and every putt.”
Stephen Curry discusses the most important thing he’s learned from Jordan.
Curry was bombarded with questions during Monday’s media session, ranging from his expectations for the season to teammate Andrew Wiggins’ immunization status. One reporter inquired about his friendship with Jordan and what he’s learnt from the guy widely regarded as the NBA’s greatest player.
Curry began with a snarky remark before focusing on how Jordan fueled Curry’s competitive fire.
“For starters, I’m not alone in being a golf psychopath,” Curry remarked. “I’m quite confident he’s got me beat.
“It’s just that competitive mentality that never goes away. His presence around a Ryder Cup team and the players and captains reflects the same killing instinct he exhibited as a player and in business. Everything in life is infused with the same energy that made him who he is while playing basketball. That’s an interesting idea.
“He puts his heart and soul into whatever he does. He is hell-bent on winning everything. It’s not simply words on a page. It’s his way of life.”
Curry is looking forward to reuniting with Klay Thompson, his Splash Brother.
Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry became one of the greatest guard duos in NBA history. Curry has had to do it alone the past two seasons, as Thompson has been out due to two different season-ending injuries.
Thompson has been putting in a lot of effort to get back on the floor. Despite the fact that he hasn’t established a return date, he expects to be back in late November or early December. Curry looks forward to the day when he can collaborate with Thompson.
Curry expressed his excitement, saying, “It’s going to be amazing.” “It’s a beautiful game of basketball. It’ll undoubtedly be emotional. I’m ecstatic because it’s the closest we’ve ever been. The audience will shower him with affection, as he deserves. It’s going to be incredible. Whatever additional descriptions you may come up with are unlikely to give it justice.”
With Thompson’s anticipated comeback and Curry’s Jordan-like competitive fire, the Warriors seem to be on their way back.
