Basketball and golf fans take note, Stephen Curry and Tiger Woods, arguably the most high-profile stars in their respective sports, will be teaming up in Wednesday’s pro-am PGA Tour golf event at the Safeway Open in Napa.

Now that is some serious star power to attract fans to the event. On one hand, you have Woods who boasts 79 PGA Tour victories and 14 major championships and on the other, Curry is the reigning two-time league MVP and an NBA champion. 

As a result, you can certainly expect a strong turnout at the Silverado Resort. 

Curry's Golden State Warriors teammate Andre Iguodala is also scheduled to take part but the duo will not be in the same group as Iggy will be playing in the “morning wave” with Justin Thomas, as he and Steph did in last year’s edition.

Curry, though, will now add Woods to his impressive list of pairings on a golf course.

The three-time All-Star was paired with singer Justin Timberlake at the American Century Championship - the celebrity golf tournament - in July. The MVP, of course, has also played a few rounds with President Barrack Obama.

The entire event has expectedly already generated a huge amount of attention. The organisers have pulled off a major coup by partnering the two sporting stars together, adding an extra storyline to Woods' return to the PGA Tour after a 14-month absence.

But there's no doubt that golf and its fans are definitely the big winners in this instance.
