Every few months, a video surfaces of one of the most recognizable athletes in the world and his golf swing. Charles Barkley, a Hall of Fame basketball player turned entertaining analyst, loves the game of golf, but the two have never been able to work things out.
That was clear once again this weekend at the Lake Tahoe American Century Celebrity Golf Championship, where Barkley finished dead last and this video popped up of his "new" move.
Barkley stops his hitched golf swing in the middle of it to start over, a pretty admirable move considering he obviously wasn't ready to hit it, but then just whacked the ball with one hand and went about his round.
We've had some fun with his golf swing before, and we will continue to marvel at what happens between the ears of one of the greatest basketball players ever when he stands over a golf ball.
If nothing else, Barkley's dedication to the game of golf should be something we should all strive to achieve, but I know if I had those demons on the course like he does, I would have locked my clubs in the back of a closet long ago, never to be seen again.
