Barkley’s Swing Somehow Gets Worse
By Stephanie Wei under Humor

If you were watching the post-game show on TNT after the Mavs beat the Lakers (woohoo!) at the wee hours of the morning, then you probably saw the segment (video above) where Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson clown on Charles Barkley and his golf swing. Well, it’s just as funny (if not funnier) the second time around.

Barkley played in the Regions Tradition pro-am at Shoal Creek with Fuzzy Zoeller on Wednesday. He didn’t exactly get off to the start he was hoping for, but leave it to Sir Charles to make the best out of the situation. On his first swing, his driver head flew off. Barkley ended up signing it and auctioning it off with proceeds going to charity.

I love how he’s incorporated a new dance move during his trademark 15-second pause when he reaches the top of his backswing! It needs a name — the Wobbly?

Oh, and good to see that whole Haney Project thing worked out so well!
