Steph Curry Is Now Part Owner Of A Golf Team

One of the greatest shooters of all time is now an owner of a golf team with other well-known players.

Steph Curry

According to Sports Illustrated, Steph Curry was announced as an owner of Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy’s indoor primetime golf team. Curry will lead the San Francisco-based team alongside Marc Lasry of Avenue Capital Group, along with NBA stars Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala as additional investors in the newest addition to the TGL product.


The venture was announced by TMRW Sports, which is the company behind the simulator league that has 24 PGA Tour players as its inaugural members. The group has seven of the top 10 players in the entire world.


“Combining the business expertise of Avenue Capital Group with the championship mentality brought by these NBA superstars, this TGL team will generate a lot of energy in the Bay Area and around the world," Mike McCarley, TMRW’s CEO, said.


TGL San Francisco joins Atlanta Drive GC, TGL Boston, Los Angeles Golf Club and TGL New York as the team franchises to be announced so far.


Still, Curry, Thompson and Iguodala are not the only current or former professional athletes to be involved in the startup league. Serena and Venus Williams are partial owners of the Los Angeles Golf Club, while Shaquille O’Neal, Dwyane Wade and Kevin Durant are also investors in TMRW Sports.


Lasry’s involvement in TGL is one of the first investments made by his new Avenue Sports Fund.


“Our ownership group is excited to become stewards of TGL San Francisco and represent Northern California, which is the center of tech innovation and is a perfect location for a TGL team in this extraordinary new sports league,” Lasry said.


The 2024 roster is officially set, and the simulator league is set to start on ESPN on Jan. 9.


Announced as the final five players to sign on this week are Patrick Cantlay, Kevin Kisner, Min Woo Lee, Lubas Glover and Wyndham Clark.


This whole situation is perfect for Curry, as he’s been well-documented to love golf since at least 2015, when he bumped into Justin Rose in New Orleans, according to Golf Digest.
