Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry wants to capitalize on his love for golfing.

Curry's representatives at Octagon are finalizing a deal to host a PGA Tour tournament that will be played next fall, according to ESPN's Darren Rovell.

One PGA official stopped short of confirming the deal, but did acknowledge that talks were underway.

"There's no doubt Stephen Curry brings a young, new, diverse audience to the PGA Tour through his passion for this great game and support for the community," said PGA Tour spokeswoman Laura Neal.

"We're excited about the prospect of partnering with an iconic athlete of his caliber in the future."

Curry is a lifetime golfer, who made his pro golf debut in 2017. He shot back-to-back rounds of 74 at the Tour's Ellie Mae Classic, and he beat Sam Ryder, but Curry narrowly missed the cut.
