Curry, a six-time All-Star and two-time MVP victor, plays for the Warriors on the west coast.
The Golden State Warriors star and three-time National Basketball Association champion is an avid golfer and says he was inspired to help kick off a program when a current Howard senior struck up a conversation about golf with him this year.
"Golf is a sport that has changed my life in ways that are less tangible, but just as impactful", Curry said about the imminent donation in a press release. "It's a discipline that challenges your mental wherewithal from patience to focus, and is impossible to truly master". Not only will it help get the sport off the ground after its dormancy, but it comes at a time when Howard is positioned to jump to Division I in golf - the first Division I program at the school.
Curry's team has not yet revealed how much he plans to donate to the program, but says he will make a seven-figure donation paid out over six years.
