Last Thursday, basketball superstar Stephen Curry was on the court in the NBA Finals. A week later, he’s back on TV playing another sport, miniature golf, as executive producer and “resident golf pro” of ABC’s “Holey Moley” (Thursday, 8 EDT/PDT).

The 10-episode “Holey,” which features 12 players competing for a $25,000 top prize each week, consists of an insanely elaborate mini-golf layout that also serves as an obstacle course with slides, pools and even a zipline. “Monday Night Football” announcer Joe Tessitore and comedian Rob Riggle offer tongue-in-cheek commentary.

Curry, 31, whose Golden State Warriors fell short in their effort to win a fourth NBA title in five years, talks to USA TODAY about his love of golf, shifting gears after a demanding basketball season and the Currys taking over Thursdays on ABC, with wife Ayesha hosting and producing a cooking competition, “Family Food Fight” (Thursday, 9 EDT/PDT) that airs right after “Holey.”
