Steph Curry Helps Howard University Start Division I Golf Team

– Written By @DanielleBTV

Two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry is making major contributions for the culture, in helping Howard University launch a Division I golf program.

The Golden State Warriors star guard and the school announced the six-year partnership during a press conference Monday. This will be the first time the school will compete at the Division I level in the sport.

31-year-old Steph Curry said he decided to get involved after being inspired by a meeting with Howard senior and golfer Otis Ferguson IV, who had been trying to get the university to have a golf team. 

“It’s amazing,” Ferguson said Monday, “to have one of my dreams come true,” as Curry said, it was ”tough” to hear about students “who have the talent but don’t have a fair shot at the game.”

Although the specifics of his contribution are unknown, Howard officials say they plan to have women’s and men’s golf teams for the 2020-21 academic year.
