Steph Curry trained with Michelle Wie West before The Match III

Before he returns to Chase Center for the Golden State Warriors preseason training camp, Stephen Curry will pick up his clubs for a star-studded round of golf.

On Friday, Curry will join legendary quarterback Peyton Manning, five-time golf major winner Phil Mickelson and NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley for the third edition of “The Match: Champions for Charity.” Proceeds from the charity competition will benefit Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).

Curry will team up with Manning against Barkley and Mickelson. While linked with Tiger Woods in The Match II, Manning was part of the winner’s circle for the round.

To prepare for his round against Mickelson and Barkley tandem, Curry was working on his golf game with Michelle Wie West. Prior to the event, Wie West shared a video on Instagram featuring her and the two-time NBA Most Valuable Player teeing off. However, instead of using tees for their drives, Wie West and Curry used OXIGEN water bottles. Both Curry and Wie West are investors and partners with OXIGEN.

The veteran golfer has five LPGA Tour wins, including a U.S. Open championship from 2014. Wie West has also finished in the top five of LPGA Tour major golf events six times. Along with former Warrior Andre Iguodala and others, Wie West is slated to serve as an analyst for The Match.

The Match III will begin at 3 p.m. EST on TNT.
