Michelle Obama tells Steph Curry to trash-talk President Obama next time they golf

Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" Tuesday with Michelle Obama to promote Drink Up, a campaign from the Partnership for a Healthier America that encourages drinking water.

Curry and President Barack Obama have become close golf buddies over the past couple of years, so Ellen DeGeneres asked Curry who the better golfer was between the two. Before he could answer, the First Lady interjected and said, "Stephen."

"I'm a better golfer, but obviously in golf you play with handicaps so everything's fair," Curry added. "The last two times I've played, I've lost to him."

Curry said his handicap is two, but he wouldn't divulge President Obama's handicap, claiming it's "top-secret" information.

Curry did admit, however, that the president is an avid trash-talker during a round of golf.

"During his speeches, he has that very slow cadence that kind of draws you in," Curry said. "He brings that same kind of vibe to his trash talk. So I'll hit a shot out of bounds, and he'll just look like, 'Yeah, that's not a good shot. I'm going to need you to do better next time.' So it gets under your skin, too, because I'm like, 'I know. I hit out of bounds.'"

Michelle Obama then gave Curry some sound advice for next time he golfs with the POTUS: "You should trash-talk back, Stephen."

"Give him some things to say," DeGeneres quipped.

"Talk about his ears," Michelle Obama said. "Here's one: As you're putting, say, 'The shadow from your ears is messing up my putt.' Try that one."
