Three-time NBA champion Stephen Curry will step back inside the ropes on the Tour next week.

For the second year in a row, Curry has been granted a sponsor's exemption into the field at the Ellie Mae Classic outside San Francisco.

Curry impressed in his debut last year, recording consectuive rounds of 4-over 74.

“The players on the Tour welcomed me with open arms in 2017, and it was an amazing experience to play with up-and-coming PGA Tour stars inside the ropes at TPC Stonebrae,” Curry said in a statement.

“I have been fortunate to be a member of an incredible team in the Golden State Warriors, and I was elated to feel that same level of camaraderie onsite last year. Golf is a game that has provided wonderful experiences in my life, and I am excited to return to the Ellie Mae Classic in August.”

Curry's Warriors swept LeBron James's Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals last month, with Curry notably posting rounds of 71-71 during the four-game series.

The two-time league MVP is currently listed as a 0.0 handicap, playing out of Cal Club.
