Many athletes do this to cool down and soak up sweat, and Curry is often caught on camera with a towel draped over his head. Here he is smiling during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center, Monday, March 2, 2015, in New York.

Apparently, it’s a bad idea to let Stephen Curry get bored on the road.

On Thursday afternoon, the Warriors star posted an Instagram of a shattered glass table in his hotel room. The entire top is destroyed, and shards of glass are all over the chairs and floor.

“When you feel like you’re on the @pgatour so you gotta get some swings going in the hotel room,” Curry captioned the photo, adding the hashtag “idiot” for good measure.

“Golf is hard…” the PGA Tour account replied.

“Told you…” added wife Ayesha. “He’s always playing invisible golf.”

Curry brought his clubs to the hotel room for a good reason: He and teammates Klay Thompson and Andre Igoudala plan to golf at hallowed Augusta National, where the Masters Golf Tournament is held, on Saturday.

Curry’s a well-known golf enthusiast, nearly as serious about his golf game as he is about basketball. He analyzes his swing in slow-motion and he has a notebook where he keeps his observations of golf pros like Jordan Spieth.
