    I saw some of his highlights today on ESPN in the round he shot 68. Impressive.

    Like you said, he will get smoked but I'm sure his swing coach is top notch, so he may shoot decent.

    That's kind of the purpose of a sponsor's exemption. Get someone in there to get more eyes on the event so they can see your product. This leads to bigger pay days for the rest of the field.

    He plays basketball like that and also can shoot a 68 in golf? I hate him.

    Not really as the only person getting bumped is whoever else the sponsor had in mind for their exemption slot, who likely wouldn't have been close to making the cut either.

    i think all the pro leagues in golf should do this, remind everyone of how insanely good they are when a scratch handicap athlete shows up and shoots 88.

    golf needs all the attention it can get.

    That's probably not true as players get sponsors exempts all the time and play well. But this is fine because it will improve pay for fields.

    Small sample sizes aside, that is also only using the "unrestricted" exemptions and I believe a lot of people are arguing that those should be restricted to people who deserve to play. But like I said, the sponsors want to get exposure and ticket sales can help bring more money in for all the players. So it's a fine line.

    No. He didn't take a spot from anyone.

    What's better for the health of the game: some no-name guy threatening to flirt with making the cut, or a guy as globally popular as Steph Curry bringing attention to the game?

    Psssssh. I've been known to break triple digits on the links, and I make a mean pan of scrambled eggs.

    Steps Curry ain't all that.
