Stephen Curry doesn’t seem likely to move from basketball any time soon, but when he does, he may have a future in golf.
Curry is a notably skilled golfer, and on Wednesday, in a competition with Lydia Ko, Curry attempted a full-court, 94-foot putt.
And it appears he came about an inch from draining it into a little hole on the far end.
Granted, a basketball court doesn’t have the curves of a golf course, but nonetheless, this kind of aim is ridiculous. Here’s the video:

Curry’s golf game has gotten him some attention. As Sports Illustrated’s Grant Wahl noted in a 2008 profile, Curry has a five-handicap, and this past summer, he played a round with President Barack Obama.
No word if Ko hit her putt, but as Believe the Hype pointed out, it doesn’t seem as if Ko shares with same kind of cross-sport skills as Steph.
