Steph and Ayesha Curry are hosting a charity golf tournament this month in San Francisco, according to a press release from the PGA of America.
The Stephen Curry Charity Classic, presented by Workday, will take place at TPC Harding Park on Sept. 16.
“Golf has impacted my life in so many ways,” the Golden State Warriors star wrote on a page to raise funds through the tournament. “It’s a game that reinforces the benefit of slowing down in our fast-forward world — it takes great patience, it challenges mental wherewithal, it rewards commitment.”
The tournament will include 50 teams of Curry’s friends playing on the course that’s been slated to host the 2020 PGA Championship. The event will include a skills challenge and an 18-hole tournament, according to Golfweek.
The magazine said the proceeds will benefit children in the Bay Area through the Curry’s Eat. Learn. Play. Foundation and PGA REACH.
“We launched Eat. Learn. Play. earlier this year with an aim to create equal opportunities and bright futures for every child. We believe talent is everywhere, but opportunity is not,” Steph wrote.
“Eat. Learn. Play. is committed to unlocking the amazing potential of every child by fighting to end childhood hunger, ensuring universal access to quality education, and enabling healthy and active lifestyles.”
The Curry’s aim to raise $1.3 million through the tournament. Steph has been active in the golf scene over the Warriors’ off-season. In August, he donated funds to Howard University to help the school start a Division 1 golf team.
