Watch Harold Varner III beat Steph Curry in basketball contest at Safeway Open

October 12, 2016

Not a great week for Steph Curry. First Tiger Woods cancels on the two-time NBA MVP for a pro-am pairing at the Safeway Open, now this.

Despite Woods backing out, the Golden State star still teed it up at Silverado Country Club on Wednesday. And while Curry has a heck of a golf game -- his handicap hovers around scratch -- basketball remains the 28 year old's sport of choice.

So imagine our surprise when PGA Tour player Harold Varner III took down Curry in a makeshift game of hoops in Napa:

From way downtown! Curry might have the best stroke in the league, but when it comes to half-court knockout, it's Varner who -- at least for one day -- reigns supreme.
