Here are some basketball players who love to compete on the court and on the course. This List Includes stars from the past and present.
Michael Jordan - As legend has it, Davis Love III introduced Jordan, a 3-handicap in our most recent ranking of athlete-golfers, to golf when the two were at UNC. MJ has been in love with the game since, often playing the days of big basketball games and even competing in Golf Digest's U.S. Open Challenge at Bethpage Black in 2009.
Stephen Curry - The NBA's best long-range threat plays to a 2-handicap. Curry backed that up when he finished fourth at the 2013 American Century Championship in Tahoe, golf's most competitive celebrity tournament. He is also honored by Golf Digest for “Golfer Who Give Back” in the Golf Digest December 2013 issue.
Chris Paul - Perhaps the biggest golf fan of any NBA player, Paul enjoys going to PGA Tour events and following fellow Wake Forest products Bill Haas and Webb Simpson. Unfortunately for the L.A. Clippers' point guard, watching the best hasn't rubbed off on him that much. His handicap is still hovering around 20.
Ray Allen - The owner of one of the prettiest shooting strokes in NBA history has a pretty sweet swing on the course as well. Allen is a 1.6 handicap at TPC River Highlands, site of the PGA Tour's Travelers Championship.
