Stephen Curry's well-known love of golf manifested itself in a unique way Monday.

The two-time NBA MVP announced a major cash sponsorship for the creation of a Division I golf program at Howard University.

Specifics of his contribution were not disclosed, but Curry will reportedly make a seven-figure donation paid out over the next six years, according to The Washington Post's Wesley Lowery.

"It's a big opportunity for us to expose students to a game that oftentimes is played as business deals are decided, and a game that generations of families can play together," Howard president Wayne A.I. Frederick told the Post.

Howard is a historically black college or university (HBCU) located in Washington. The school once had a Division II golf team but it was discontinued in the 1970s.
