Considering Curry is an amateur the score is impressive, and surprised PGA player Steve Wheatcroft. Even if he plays a spectacular round, it's tough to imagine him keeping pace with people who golf week in and week out to make a living.

Amid controversy, Curry made it into the field as a sponsor's exemption.

A bogey on the last was not the ideal way to end his day, but Curry was already looking ahead to Friday's second round.

"I obviously thank Ellie Mae and the Web.com for giving me this opportunity because it was a dream come true for sure". Shooting two 74s, I'll take that.

"I want to play better tomorrow and now I've got the jitters out hopefully that will happen", he said.

Curry has said in the past, that if he did not play basketball he would have played golf professionally.

"I'm happy with it".

After that first birdie, Curry pulled a Jordan Speith and pointed to his caddie to get the ball out of the cup.

"If you'd told me I was going to shoot 74 going into the round, I'd take that all day, every day", said the two-time NBA Most Valuable Player.

Curry, who reportedly has a 2 handicap, was given an over/under of 76.5 for his lowest round by British bookmakers (via Golf.com), so he easily exceeded those expectations in both rounds.

After his first round, the keen golfer described it as an "amazing experience", however he will not be continuing it into the weekend.

His tee shot on the first hole of the tournament landed in a golf buggy to give him an inauspicious start, but despite that and a couple of other wobbles he managed to hold his own. On the backside, Curry again carded a 37 - making two more birdies to go along with two bogeys and a costly double bogey on the par 4-fifth hole.

He'll be back on the course Friday to see if he can make the cut.

"I was asked if I thought he was going to break 80, and that's the hand grenade question", Paul Casey said.
