One sure sign the celebrity tournament in Stateline, Nev., is really not serious: The most enduring image of last year’s edition was Dell Curry leaping into chilly Lake Tahoe, with his famous son (and Justin Timberlake) hooting and hollering nearby.
This is also one sure sign the event is usually rollicking good entertainment.
Stephen Curry headlines the field again in this year’s American Century Championship, starting Friday in Stateline, Nev. This has become a summertime ritual, the highest-profile celebrity golf event in the land.
It’s also a perfect example of golf’s powerful allure.
