Steph Curry celebrated his American Century Championship buzzer beater like he just won the NBA Finals

By now you’ve probably seen the clip of Steph Curry’s incredible hole-in-one at the American Century Championship on Saturday. You’ve also probably watched the video of his incredible walk-off eagle on the 18th hole to win it on Sunday. Obviously Curry had a heck of a weekend at Edgewood Tahoe, but If you really want to understand how much golf means to the NBA’s all-time three-point scorer, you have to see what happened after the highlights.

Curry was seen fist pumping like Tiger and hugging his wife Ayesha and son Canon like a maniac …

He was seen kissing the trophy with his father and brother watching on …

Clearly emotional, he spoke to NBC about how he had “always dreamt” of draining a tournament-winning putt on the final hole and how, in many ways, it felt like an NBA buzzer beater.

If it weren’t for the spikes, you might have thought Curry just clinched his fifth ring. Instead, it was his first celebrity golf title after coming up short in last month’s edition of The Match. It certainly won’t be the last, but you know what they say:

You never forget your first.
