WATCH: Steph Curry plays golf in Lewis Hamilton's helmet

Updated: 

There is nothing wrong with wearing a helmet to drive - it is, of course, encouraged in the high-octane world of motorsport.

But Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry was guilty of misinterpretation when he took to the golf course on Tuesday, donning three-time F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton's helmet to take his tee shot.

The safety benefits were limited, while the restricted visibility made for a woeful attempt that got nowhere near the fairway and took a chunk out of the pristine turf at Mission Hills Golf Club in China.

A second, much-improved drive without the helmet means we've probably seen the last of the golf-basketball-F1 hybrid for now.
