Howard University aims to debut the first men's and women's golf teams in the 2020/2021 academic year, with resources strategically allocated for talent scouting and training to have a competitive Division 1 team in place for its inaugural season, joining Howard's other 19 Division 1 teams.

Curry announced Monday that he will financially support the Bison's golf teams for the next six years.

"Howard University is honored to partner with NBA Champion Stephen Curry to launch what is sure to become one of the best golf programs in the country", said President Wayne A.I. Frederick, M.D., MBA.

Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry shared on Instagram a photo of himself modeling the Palm Unlocked, a device the company describes as, " very small, minimalist mobile device".

"The idea around re-creating Howard's golf team and turning it into a Division I program for men and women was born on that specific night", Curry said. The university previously had a Division II golf team and various intercollegiate and intramural club teams.

The 31-year-old Curry, who has won three National Basketball Association championships with the Warriors, says he made a decision to get involved after meeting a Howard student who had been trying to get the university to have a golf team.

On the other hand, it is said that attackers can exploit this fault even when the devices had already been paired previously. Bluetooth SIG is the global body that is responsible for standards for Bluetooth connections.

Because Howard is starting from scratch, it will take time to hire coaches, recruit players and relaunch the program. "Now, seven and a half or eight months later, we're here".

However, perhaps no one is feeling more overjoyed than Otis Ferguson, the individual who is being credited as the man behind this partnership between Howard and Curry. In 2017, he fired an opening-round 74 while playing on an exemption at the Web.com Tour's Ellie Mae Classic. He missed the cut in both tournaments.

He has two shows on ABC television: "Holey Moley", an extreme miniature golf competition, and "Family Food Fight", hosted by wife Ayesha Curry, a chef and restaurateur.

"Golf is a sport that has changed my life in ways that are less tangible, but just as impactful", Curry said about the imminent donation in a press release.

Curry, who often plays in celebrity golf events, played on his high school golf team.
