Passion for golf has been with Stephen Curry since an early age

STATELINE, Nev. — At the risk of criticizing the parenting decisions of others, what the heck were Dell and Sonya Curry thinking?

How is it that they let their little Stephen pursue his athletic dream in basketball, a sport for which he was (and is) physically unsuited, when he showed so much aptitude for golf, where scrawny little guys can compete at an elite level?

Dell seemed to have the right idea, taking little Steph onto the course when he was 8, letting him ride in the cart and putt with a sawed-off putter.

Steph loved golf, but by age 8, he already had made his choice: basketball.
