If it’s July, the Warriors’ Stephen Curry must be switching to his other favorite sport

Motorsports Santa Cruz Sentinel

In the past, Stephen Curry and his father Dell have made side bets in which the loser has to jump into Lake Tahoe.
'There are few sure bets in South Lake Tahoe. Stephen Curry’s return to the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament would be one. The Warriors’ Curry will be making his seventh appearance in the three-round tournament at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course, scheduled for July 12-14. Last year he tied for 11th in the 90-plus field of celebrities.  According to Harrah’s and Harveys Race and Sports Book, he is a 15-1 favorite to win this year. For the fifth time Curry will be joined in the tournament by his father, former NBA sharp-shooter Dell Curry. In the past, father and son have made a personal wager against each other in which the loser (and his caddy) have to endure a bracing splash hit — i.e., a jump into frigid Lake Tahoe. The younger Curry is a golf enthusiast who has twice received a sponsor’s exemption to the Web.com Tour’s Ellie Mae Classic. Other notables with Bay Area ties who will appear at the Tahoe event include former Cal and current Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Sharks captain Joe Pavelski, former A’s pitcher Mark Mulder, Curry’s Warriors teammate Andre Iguodala, NFL Hall of Famers Jerry Rice, Steve Young, Marcus Allen, Tim Brown and Charles Woodson. Also on hand will be defending champion NFL broadcaster and former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. Charles Barkley will also participate, demonstrating his unique swing — the visual equivalent of fingernails raking across a blackboard.'

Tony Romo ready to tee off in Northeast Amateur

American Football Boston Herald

EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Lead NFL on CBS analyst and former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has been given a few opportunities to take on some of golf’s top professionals. In those events, the 39-year-old still is waiting for his big
'EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Lead NFL on CBS analyst and former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has been given a few opportunities to take on some of golf’s top professionals. In those events, the 39-year-old still is waiting for his big breakthrough against the best of the best. Beginning today, Romo will shift gears a bit and take on the best players who aren’t currently getting paid for their golf exploits. He will tee off in the 58th Northeast Amateur at Wannamoisett Country Club, one of the premier amateur events in the country that has featured many former and current PGA Tour players before they hit it big. Romo said Notah Begay, who won the event in 1995 and went on to win four times on the PGA Tour, helped arrange the invitation through his friendship with tournament chairman Ben Tuthill. “It’s a great tournament, obviously there’s been a million great players who played in this and (won) this tournament so I feel like, you want to play good golf, you want to play against some of the best players in the country, and at the amateur level this is obviously that,” Romo said. “This tournament, the prestige of it kind of speaks for itself.” Past champions include Ben Crenshaw, David Duval and Dustin Johnson while Brooks Koepka, Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth all have teed it up at some point during their amateur career at the par-69 Donald Ross layout. Last fall, Romo advanced to the first stage of Web.com Tour qualifying school. This year he missed the cut in two PGA Tour events and did not make it out of the U.S. Open local qualifier. While he has come up short in the events he has played, Romo still has plenty of game. He is a scratch golfer and won the big celebrity tournament in Lake Tahoe last summer, and still feels like his game is getting better. “From really March to now has been a pretty significant improvement. In the last month I’ve seen quite a bit,” he said. “It’s like anything, you just systematically take an individual piece that you’re not good at and you go work on that.” Romo will defend his American Century Championship title in Lake Tahoe, hopes to get a spot in the Western Amateur and will attempt to qualify for the U.S. Amateur at Pinehurst this summer before his focus shifts back to the gridiron, where he will join Jim Nantz for a third season in the CBS booth. Romo’s tight end for his time in Dallas was Jason Witten, who earlier this year announced he would return to the Cowboys after a year in the broadcast booth, and Romo was asked whether the NFL has seen the last of Rob Gronkowski on the field. “I think everybody gets the itch (to come back), it’s whether you want to put your body through it,” Romo said. “Every player who leaves still wants to play, it’s just, a.) Do you want to put your body through that; … b.) Are you moved on in your life mentally. “If he does and he starts enjoying what he’s got going on, I don’t think it will be that big of a deal for him. If not, it will be a tougher tug.” Romo said the competitive side of golf and learning how to become broadcaster helped negate his own itch to return to the NFL. He will play the first two rounds with Brockton’s Matt Parziale, who is coming off a second straight appearance in the U.S. Open. Romo isn’t the only player in the field who has a bit of fame outside of golfing circles. Garrett Rank of Canada is on the ice most of the year as an NHL referee before spending the summers on the golf course. Rank earned a spot at the U.S. Open last year at Shinnecock Hills and is ranked 115th in the latest World Amateur Golf Rankings. This is the fifth time in the last seven years the Northeast has been on Rank’s schedule and he has a pair of top-20 finishes. A standby official through the first round of the playoffs, Rank really is just starting to get his game into tournament form. He won the Ontario Amateur last year and was third in the Canadian Amateur, which along with trying to qualify for the U.S. Amateur are the big events on his schedule. “Hockey pays the bills and that’s where my mindset is for most of the year, but it’s nice to kind of decompress and come out here and try to compete against these guys,” said Rank, who added he managed between five and 10 rounds during the regular season when he had days off in some of the league’s warmer locales. Following a Stanley Cup playoffs during which officials were roundly criticized for a number of high-profile mistakes, Rank is ready for whatever changes come their way to help improve the game. “I’m not sure there’s an exact answer. I think they’re going to discuss that at the GM meetings and the competition meetings coming up,” he said. “Obviously we would have liked to have been a little bit better, but at the end of the day the game is really fast and we’re trying as hard as we can. Mistakes happen and at the end of the day we don’t want mistakes. Anything we can do to make the game better we’d definitely be on board for that.” Expanding replay is most likely one avenue, though Rank declined to say just how far that should go.'

‘Gloria’ the puppy recovering after surgery to fix mutilated ears

ST. LOUIS – Meet Gloria. She came to the Humane Society of Missouri after Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final “Gloria was found by a passerby a week ago (Monday),” says Dr. Mark Wright, director of shelter medicine at the Humane Society of Missouri.
'ST. LOUIS – Meet Gloria. She came to the Humane Society of Missouri after Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final “Gloria was found by a passerby a week ago (Monday),” says Dr. Mark Wright, director of shelter medicine at the Humane Society of Missouri. “She was bleeding profusely from her ears so she was brought to the Humane Society. The doctor on care that evening got her bandaged up.” They’ve been changing bandages ever since to allow healing to take place. On Monday, Gloria had surgery at Animal Medical Center of Mid-America. She’s received laser treatments to help the healing process. “Gloria has been on antibiotics and two different kinds of pain medication because her ears were pretty brutally disfigured,” says Dr. Wright. “Someone used blunt scissors on her ears. They just hacked them off, it was pretty gruesome.” Because of the heinous act, the Humane Society of Missouri has raised their reward money, asking someone to step forward if they know something. “Last week, the organization put up a $2,500 reward but we’ve raised that to $4,000 for the arrest and conviction of who is responsible for this horrible crime against this little puppy,” says Dr. Wright. And as Dr. Wright will tell you, stitches itch, which is why Gloria will have to wear a cone for the time being until she can be adopted. “If someone is interested they can go to HSMO.org/Gloria ,” Dr. Wright says. “There’s going to be an application process because with all the things Gloria has been through, we’re going to be really careful with her. So when she does go to her fur-ever home it’s a good match and a permanent match.”'
