Warriors' Steph Curry joining NBC's coverage for 2021 Ryder Cup
Outside of the Masters, PGA Championship, The Open and U.S. Open, the Ryder Cup serves as one of golf’s premier events. The Ryder Cup takes place every two years between a team of American golfers and golfers from Europe.
The 2021 edition of the Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin will feature Golden State Warrior Steph Curry. After his Unanimous Media company signed a new talent partnership with NBC Universal, the point guard will join the coverage team for the upcoming event.
Along with providing analysis as an insider during the competition, Curry will join The Golf Channel’s “Live From the Ryder Cup” coverage and “GolfPass.”

Curry’s step into golf coverage shouldn’t come as a surprise. When the two-time NBA Most Valuable Player is away from the basketball court, he’s usually close to the golf course.
The Warriors’ seven-time All-Star is a long-time competitor in Lake Tahoe’s American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament. In the latest tournament, Curry landed in ninth. In 2020, Curry placed in the top five. Curry has also teed off against defending PGA champion Phil Mickelson in “The Match III.”
The Ryder Cup is set to tee off on Sept. 24. The final round takes place on Sept. 26.
