He’s the NBA‘s undisputed king of the three-pointer who made his professional golf bow this year — but perhaps Stephen Curry knows what sport he should stick to.

Curry, who is in China for Golden State Warriors’ pre-season Global Games ties with Minnesota Timberwolves, linked up with Lewis Hamilton at Mission Hills Golf Club.

Formula One star Hamilton is preparing for this weekend’s Japanese Grand Prix and is enjoying some down time in Asia after taking part in the Malaysia race on Sunday.

The pair enjoyed a spot of golf at the Libeiling golf course, and Curry tried his hand at hitting a tee shot in unusual circumstances.

Curry, who played in a pro golf tournament during his summer break, opted to don Hamilton’s famous yellow racing helmet but completely fluffed his shot and took out a huge chunk of the green too. 

The 29-year-old American confidently stepped up but comically missed his shot, and Hamilton was sure to show up the basketball star by posting the video on Instagram. 

Hamilton did, however, save Curry some embarrassment by not revealing who the unfortunate golfer in question was.

Instead, the Formula One superstar simply captioned his post: ‘Guess who this is…?’

It’s been a busy few days for Hamilton, who finished second at the Malaysian Grand Prix on Sunday to open up a 34-point lead on main title rival Sebastian Vettel – who came home fourth having started from the back of the grid.

Max Verstappen took the race win having passed pole-sitter Hamilton at the start of lap four and then pulling away from the Brit with ease. Vettel, too, was quicker than his championship adversary for much of the race. 

But Hamilton was able to hold on to second place and he goes into the Japanese Grand Prix with the advantage in the F1 championship race.
