If you’re a true Stephen Curry aficionado, then you know that he played golf in high school and that golf is his second favorite sport. Curry often answers the question: “What would you do for a career if you didn’t play in the NBA?” by saying that he would be a professional golfer.
Curry, a six-time NBA All-Star and two-time MVP, is known for seemingly unlimited range, dropping buckets from 35 feet out as easy as a layup. But off the court, his range is even longer – Stephen drops dimes almost 300 yards when he’s on the golf course. Stephen’s skill and passion for golf are well-known, and now he’s bringing his trademark intensity from the hardwood to the greens by dropping a bold new Golf collection.
Stephen Curry launched his Range Unlimited Golf line at the world’s most massive course, Mission Hills Resort in Shenzhen, China during is stop in Asia as part of the larger 2019 Under Armour Basketball Asia Tour in June 2019. The Range Unlimited Golf line is all about bringing Stephen’s trademark style and personality onto the golf course, in combination with UA Golf’s best-in-class innovations.
“I wanted to try to blend my personality, my joy, my style off the court into a golf capsule – when you look good, you feel good, and you play good golf.” – Stephen Curry
The Range Unlimited Collection features a full suite of products. The Range Unlimited Iso-Chill polos feature UA’s breakthrough Iso-Chill technology, which actively cools your body and keeps you dry despite heat and humidity. The Range Unlimited Storm Wind Jacket enables you to play through rain and wind, ensuring you’re ready for the elements. And the Curry 6 spikeless golf shoe pairs the acclaimed Curry 6 basketball shoe with a spikeless version of the UA Rotational Resistance outsole for lockdown, lightweight traction.
Steph’s new capsule collection includes 14 total pieces – tops, bottoms, outerwear, hats, and the Curry 6 SL golf shoe, all incorporating the latest material and design breakthroughs from UA Golf. The collection will be available starting this Autumn 2019, in limited quantities at Under Armour Brand Houses and on UA.com across North America, Asia, and Europe, as well as at select pro shops across the United States.
“You want to be able to make bold statements with some loud prints… it still has the performance technology with Iso-Chill that makes you feel cool out there on the course. There is always a performance element to making athletes better, and that is what we do at Under Armour, so blending those two perspectives was what made this capsule different from anything else you’ve seen,” remarked Stephen Curry.
