Here's what people had to say of the performance, including some impressed professional golfers.

Many have tried and failed, and Curry faces a steep battle on Friday to make the cut, which is expected to fall at around two under. Coming into the tournament, Curry had +900 odds to make the cut and -2500 to miss it according to some sports books. He ends the Web.com Tour appearance at 8-over and tied for 148th place. And Sam Ryder won last week on the Web.com Tour.

"I think he certainly beat most everybody's expectations but I don't think that really surprised him", fellow Under Armour athlete Spieth said.

Curry, who sits 142nd out of a field of 154, said it was an "amazing" experience. "Obviously as a competitor you can always play better, so hopefully I can do that tomorrow". "After how [Thursday] went, I'm extremely proud of backing that up with another solid round because it could have gone either way". He hit his drive well left on four holes and took a penalty stroke on the par-5 third hole when he hit his tee shot into a hazard of tall, dry weeds and was left with an unplayable lie.

He made a jittery start, his opening tee shot landing in a cup holder on a golf cart adjacent to the fairway.

"I'm happy with it".

Former PGA champion Jason Day added: "To be honest, I think it's pretty special for a two-time MVP to be able to shoot 74 at a pro event and beat other pros". He made five straight pars and birdied No. 14 but he played the final three holes at plus-1 with two bogeys and a birdie on 17.

Check out Steph's IG shot, which shows his arm around President Obama on the golf course, and includes Curry's wife, Ayesha Curry, their daughters and his parents, Dell and Sonya. It could have been those 80, 90 talks I heard going into the tournament.
