Reigning NBA Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry has made some big shots in his career and he can now add big putts after taking on world No 1 Lydia Ko in a golfing challenge today.

Ko showed up to Golden State Warriors training and ended up in a putting challenge with Curry, who leads the league in scoring and has played a leading hand in helping the Warriors to 56-6 record this season.

Curry, who plays off a single-figure handicap and once shot 76 while playing with American president Barack Obama, hit the target with his putt across the full length of a basketball court even though it sloped to the left.

Curry's putting attempt was rather more accurate than when Ko tried her hand at basketball, leaving her free throw slightly short of the target.


Ko posted a number of photos to her Twitter account, including one with NBA finals MVP Andre Iguodala.

She will attend the Warriors game against the Utah Jazz this afternoon as Golden State attempt to extend their record to 46 straight home wins.
