One day, Rivers asked a course employee which player was playing the most golf. Rivers thought for sure it was Smith, an avid golfer who will tune into a golf tournament on his iPad in the locker room after a day game. “Without a thought, he said, ‘Oh, Millsap by a long shot. … It’s not even close,’ ” Rivers said. “So during the game or before the game we were laughing because I asked him (Millsap) did he play yesterday, and he goes, ‘Oh, yeah, I got out there.’ I said, ‘When do you have time?’ I don’t know how he’s doing it, but he’s doing it.”
Tonal — a digitally connected strength machine that is seen by many as Peloton’s main rival — announced Thursday a fresh $110 million capital infusion from a range of investors — both new and old. Some of Tonal’s newest backers are a who’s who of the sports world: Stephen Curry (NBA), Paul George (NBA), Bobby Wagner (NFL) and Michelle Wie (golf).

Tour officials have been talking to Curry for nearly two years about attaching his name to a new tournament in the Bay Area. The event would make its debut in September 2021, on the fall portion of the PGA Tour schedule. The contract for the Curry event will cover at least five years, according to a Rec & Park staff report posted Wednesday. The amendment scheduled for a discussion and vote Thursday would relinquish the ’26 Presidents Cup, as city and tour officials finalize the Curry event.
