John Tavares and Steph Curry had a chance encounter on Wednesday morning, bumping into each other at Sebonack Golf Club, the prestigious golf club out in the Hamptons. 

Tavares was on hand for the captains' getaway, a golf outing and meetup for Islanders former captains, while Curry, a two-time NBA Champion and MVP, was out golfing with his father, Dell. 

Both stars are noted golfers and Curry even shot a four-over 74 during at a Web.com Tour event earlier this summer. They didn't play together, but talked hockey and basketball at the practice tees. Still, it was a cool, candid moment with two stars from two sports. As the tweet says, game recognize game.
