After finishing with scores of 21 and 18 after the first two rounds of the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament, Steph Curry was chasing a top-10 finish heading into the final 18 holes at Edgewood resort in Lake Tahoe.

Following 36 holes, the Golden State Warriors point guard was tied for sixth on the leaderboard. Through the first two rounds, Curry dropped in six birdies on the scorecard. The American Century Championship used a modified version of the Stableford system.

Albatross (Double-Eagle): 10 points

Hole-in-one: 8 points

Eagle: 6 points

Birdie: 3 points

Par: 1 point

Bogey: 0 points

Double bogey or worse: -2 point

Curry totaled 39 points after the first two rounds. In the opening round, Curry recorded 21 points, his high for the tournament.

While paired with NFL veterans Brian Urlacher and Larry Fitzgerald, the seven-time NBA All-Star tallied a pair of birdies through his first four holes. However, Curry notched back-to-back bogeys on holes five and six.

Curry added a trio of bogeys and one double on the back nine. Yet, the 33-year-old came through clutch, knocking in an eagle on No. 18 to cap off his round. Curry finished the round with a score of 17, his lowest of the tournament, but good enough to finish in ninth place on the leaderboard.

Former NBA coach Vinny Del Negro came in at the top spot for the competition, tallying 69 total points. MLB Hall of Fame pitcher John Smoltz and former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo rounded out the top three.
