Stephen Curry is 18 holes away from his first American Century Championship victory.

The Golden State Warriors star finished atop the leaderboard for a second straight day at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course in Stateline, Nevada, on Saturday.

While Curry posted a lower score in Round 2 (23 points) than in Round 1 (27 points), he did deliver the shot of the tournament. The 35-year-old sunk a 152-yard ace on the par-3 seventh hole.

So, will Curry continue to dominate on the course and add to his loaded trophy case? Here's a look at the leaderboard entering Sunday's final round of the celebrity golf tournament.

What is the American Century Championship leaderboard?

After the last two American Century Championships went to a playoff, we could be in for another tight finish this year.

The 2020 tournament winner, Mardy Fish, meanwhile, moved into a tie with Pavelski at 47 points after recording the best single-round score thus far of 29 on Saturday.

Three-time winner Mark Mulder and two-time winner Jack Wagner are tied for fourth, though they're 12 points off the lead.

Reigning champion and three-time winner Tony Romo is tied for 12th with 32 points.
