Charles Barkley’s Acting Almost as Awkward as His Swing
By Stephanie Wei under General

Sir Charles hosted Saturday Night Live on Saturday, and apparently, it was incredibly tough to watch at times because he took long pauses before delivering each line — actually, it was kind of like the way he swings.

Barkley and “Hank Haney” spoofed the Haney Project, showing that Barkley’s unorthodox approach to his golf swing (which, despite many hours working with the “legendary golf instructor,” didn’t improve) was prevalent in other activities.

The skit also made a little jab at the Golf Channel in the intro: “You’re watching the Golf Channel — probably by accident or for the last time.” Now that was pretty classic.

Compared to the recent golf-related spoofs, I give this one a B-.
