If you are a three-time NBA champion and two-time league MVP, you can lift the ban on fans in the PGA Championship.
Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry was deposed as a “guest reporter” for the final round of the tournament, making him one of the few foreigners allowed on the course at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco on Sunday.
Curry, who is not in the NBA bubble in Florida because the Warriors did not qualify for the NBA restart, asked the first two questions at winner Collin Morikawa’s press conference. He even offered to carry Morikawa’s bag if Kadi JJ Jakovac was busy. (Jakovac is a Warriors fan but Morikawa, who went to school in Berkeley but is a Los Angeles area native, declared himself a Lakers fan.)
“I’m free for the next three months if you need a box or replacement,” said Curry, who wore a mask but Morikawa still recognized him on the course. “JJ is a great guy, but if you need me, I’m available.”
Curry also asked Morikawa if he sees the lead when he is playing in a tournament.
“I want to know where I am. Why not?” Morikawa said. “I don’t think it affects me.”
