The two-time MVP and three-time National Basketball Association champion wanted to do what everyone else was doing on Sunday after Tiger Woods captured his fifth Masters championship and congratulate the 15-time major victor.
Draymond Green got Golden State going by making all five of his shots in the first quarter en route to 17 points to go with seven assists and seven rebounds, while Durant scored 23 points as the Warriors ran their postseason winning streak to seven games.
That is certainly no small deal with the Warriors now in the middle of a playoff series against the LA Clippers, which speaks to the draw that the 43-year-old Woods still has.
"Everybody was pretty excited", Kerr told reporters, via The Mercury News. "We had to delay our film session so we could watch the last couple of holes. It was pretty wonderful and fun to watch". Woods career was then sidetracked by injuries and off-the-course issues. We look at a lot of that stuff with our team.

Immelman shot a par round 72 to make the cut for the first time since 2013 on two-over, while Grace is a shot behind. The leaders were set to tee off at 9:20 a.m. and, barring delays, were expected to finish at around 2:30 p.m.
"We never thought he'd play again", Kerr said.
Steph Curry, an avid golfer, was no doubt glued to a television set like the rest of us Sunday morning, and following the win he congratulated Tiger on Twitter. "It's fun to see other athletes do their thing".
The Warriors finished the regular season with a 57-25 record and earned the top seed in the Western Conference playoffs.
