HAYWARD, Calif. — Stephen Curry dropped 11 strokes to par on the first eight holes and shot a 16-over 86 on Friday to finish last in the Web.com Tour’s Ellie Mae Classic.
The Golden State Warriors star, making his second appearance in the event at TPC Stonebrae, finished at 17-over 157 after opening with a 71 on Thursday.
Curry was last among the 154 finishers — 33 strokes behind leader Alex Prugh — and missed the cut by 13 strokes. Last year, Curry shot 74-74 to tie for 148th and miss the cut by 11 shots.
