At a press conference on Monday in Washington, D.C., Curry pledged to make a donation that is reportedly in the seven figures to help support the university's quest to bring back the sport, which had been absent for 40 years.

Curry, who attended Davidson College, became interested in helping bring back the Bison's golf teams after meeting Howard senior and golfer Otis Ferguson IV during a campus visit to watch a documentary film in January.

Stephen Curry is sponsoring the creation of men's and women's golf teams at Howard University, The Washington Post's Wesley Lowery reported on Monday.

The school had a Division II golf program in the past, along with intercollegiate and intramural club teams.

Howard athletic director Kery Davis said Curry's donation "was sort of a jolt for us".

It is unlikely that the three-time champion and two-time league MVP ever forgets his own history with ankle injuries that put is National Basketball Association career in jeopardy. "I feel really honored to play a small role in the rich history of Howard University, and look forward to building their first men's and women's golf teams with them". "Now, seven and a half or eight months later, we're here".

The school will begin a search for coaches, potential players, and a course for practice and competitive rounds in the next few months. In 2017, he fired an opening-round 74 while playing on an exemption at the Web.com Tour's Ellie Mae Classic. He missed the cut in both tournaments. "It's a discipline that challenges your mental wherewithal from patience to focus, and is impossible to truly master, so when you hear about these passionate student athletes who have the talent but don't have a fair shot at the game, it's tough".

Curry is also is a co-host of the ABC mini-golf TV show "Holey Moley".

"It's a big opportunity for us to expose students to a game that oftentimes is played as business deals are decided and a game that generations of families can play together", Howard President Wayne A.I. Frederick said.
