Howard University will be bringing back its collegiate golf program thanks to an assist from Stephen Curry.

The Golden State Warriors star announced mon Monday a seven-figure donation to establish the first Division I men’s and women’s golf teams in the 152-year history of this historically black university in Washington DC.

For Howard athletic director Kery Davis, the donation “was sort of a jolt for us.” It has been almost 50-years since the school offered golf which last a Division II team before it folded in the 1970s.

“Golf has always been a game of privilege,” Davis said. “An association with the sport can break down barriers.”

Davis told the Washington post that the sport will not be offered right away as it will take about a year to hire coaches, recruit student-athletes and find a course to practice and play on. The school plans to have both the men’s and women’s teams in place to compete for the 2020-21 season.

“Golf is a sport that has changed my life in ways that are less tangible, but just as impactful,” Curry said in a release. “It’s a discipline that challenges your mental wherewithal from patience to focus, and is impossible to truly master, so when you hear about these passionate student athletes who have the talent but don’t have a fair shot at the game, it’s tough. I feel really honored to play a small role in the rich history of Howard University.”

The announcement took place in the nation’s capital at Langston Golf Course, the second racially desegregated golf course in the District of Columbia.

The two-time NBA MVP is a longtime golfer, who played golf on his high school team, has participated on the pro-am circuit and shot a four-over-74 opening round in his professional golf debut at the Web.com Tour’s Ellie Mae Classic back in 2017.

Curry has also tried his hand at executive producing and hosting a mini-golf reality competition series called “Holey Moley” which premiered earlier this summer with some good ratings.

The NBA star’s financial contribution will support the Bison’s gold teams for six years.
