His round consisted of three birdies, five bogeys and one double bogey.

The tournament at the TPC Stonebrae north of San Francisco drew a larger than normal crowd with numerous fans following Curry wearing his Warriors jersey.

"Infinite Challenge" staff said, "Global basketball stars Stephan Curry and Seth Curry had a lot of fun, showing their skills and taking half-court shots before going head-to-head with the "Infinite Challenge" cast".

"That's probably a first on the tour". His drive at the 10th hole landed in the cupholder of a golf cart sitting left of the fairway and he scrambled to make bogey on the hole.

"To hit my first shot in tournament play was a really nervous moment but it was everything I hoped for".

His opening tee shot was unnerving, but he recovered well.

All things considered, the Warriors guard has to be satisfied with his performance in his first professional golf tournament.

"As soon as he said my name on the first tee, I could barely feel my hands". The best guys out here are able to master those thoughts for five hours. He completed three birdies and slotted ahead of two-time PGA Tour victor Frank Lickliter as well as the world's 429th-ranked player, Casey Wittenberg.

'If you told me I was going to shoot 74 going into the first round, I would take that all day, every day.

The top 65 players from the 156-player field will make the cut and return for weekend play after tomorrow's round.
