The Super Bowl MVP is known for the famous proclamation, “I’m going to Disney World!”
In basketball, apparently it’s “I’m going to play Augusta National!”
Yes, a round at Augusta National was actually a promise Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr made to both regular season MVP Stephen Curry and Finals MVP Andre Iguodala. Well, the two players made good on their half of the deal by winning the NBA Championship. Now it’s up to Kerr to make good on his.
J.A. Adande of ESPN first reported the exchange in his post-game recap. “When we won, I’m yelling at Steph, ‘We’re going to Augusta!’” Iguodala, the NBA Finals MVP, said. “You know how everybody goes to Disneyland? We’re going to Augusta.”

According to the article, Kerr has an in at Augusta which he plans to use to get his victorious players a tee time. It’s no surprise they’re excited. Golf was a release for Iguodala (who reportedly shoots in the 80s) and Curry (a 0.4 handicap) all season.
If Curry and Iguodala can survive Lebron James, surely Amen Corner is like a walk in the park.
