Stephen Curry Makes Donation to Launch Golf Teams at Howard University

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In a historic stride forward to grow the game of golf, six-time NBA All-Star and Eat. Learn. Play. Foundation co-founder, Stephen Curry, announced his commitment to Howard University today, with a pledge to support the establishment of the university’s first NCAA Division 1 golf program for the next six years.

Inspired by Howard senior and golfer, Otis Ferguson IV, whom Curry met during a campus visit earlier this year, Curry was compelled to act when Ferguson shared that his impassioned solo crusade to get a golf team at Howard proved unsuccessful. An avid golfer himself, Curry tapped into what is increasingly becoming his defining trait— the distinctive ability to connect and empathize with anyone, anywhere, and made the unprecedented decision to help bridge the gap between talent and opportunity. Utilizing his unique position, Curry will introduce and increase access to elite golf at a historically black college, furthermore calling on sport and community giants like Under Armour, Callaway, Eat. Learn. Play., among others, for help with equipment, uniforms, and more.

2019 Solheim Cup | The Final Push for Teams Europe and USA

When the European Solheim Cup team is finalized after this week’s Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open the host side in Scotland next month will likely have a much more experienced team than the United States, which determines its players after the CP Women’s Open ends Aug. 25. It truly is a changing of the guard for the Yanks.

Also becoming clear is the importance of the captain’s picks – four by Catriona Matthew for Europe and two by Juli Inkster for the U.S. team. Inkster, especially, will have to decide how much to value experience, which those players who are likely to qualify for the team have in very short supply.

Europe’s team came much more into focus after the AIG Women’s British Open at Woburn Golf Club. The three qualifiers as of now off the Ladies European Tour points list are Carlota Ciganda, Caroline Hedwall and Ann Van Dam. The five who qualify off the Rolex Rankings are Charley Hull, Georgia Hall, Azahara Munoz, Caroline Masson and Anna Nordqvist. 

Those eight players, who appear to be a lock for Europe, have played in a combined 21 Solheim Cups. The 10 Americans currently qualified for the team have played in a combined nine Cups. That’s a startling difference. 

Currently qualified off the points list for the Americans are Lexi Thompson, Nelly Korda, Danielle Kang, Lizette Salas, Jessica Korda, Marina Alex, Megan Khang and Brittany Altomare. Making the team off the Rolex Rankings would be Angel Yin and Austin Ernst.
