Stephen Curry is the de facto captain of Under Armour's endorsed athletes. The brand stole him from Nike, and Curry subsequently became the best basketball player in the world, not to mention the most beloved athlete by little kids.
If Curry is captain, then Jordan Spieth is his alternate. Under Armour snatched up a 19-year-old Spieth in 2013 before he reached World No. 1 and won two majors.
Curry and Spieth have been featured in multiple Under Armour campaigns together, and the two recently met up in Dallas. So when Curry heard about Spieth's quadruple-bogey on the 12th hole Sunday at Augusta he broke down. Literally. During Golden State's pre-game warm-ups.
Listen to Andre Iguodala say, "Two in the water on 12."

According to ESPN's Marc Stein, Curry then "hustled" through the rest of his pregame routine to catch as much of The Masters as he could.
Of course, what Curry saw in the end was Spieth rounding out his collapse. Englishman Danny Willett won the tournament with a score of -5, while Spieth tied for second with Lee Westwood at -2. Spieth held a five-shot lead through nine holes Sunday after scoring birdies on holes 6-9.
Curry's own golf game has hovered around scratch, and his parents claim he could play pro golf if he put his mind to it. In February, Steve Kerr fulfilled a promise to Curry and Iguodala that involved the 2014-15 NBA MVP and 2014-15 NBA Finals MVP playing Augusta National as a prize for winning a world championship.
Curry and Spieth met up during the Warriors' trip to Dallas three weeks ago. Apparently, they're going to play a round this summer.

Failure wasn't contagious, though: Later that night, the Warriors defeated the Spurs, 92-86, behind 37 points from Curry. Golden State tied the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls for most wins in a regular season (72) and have one chance to beat the record in the season finale, home against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.
