A worse golf swing than Charles Barkley? Meet Alex Galchenyuk

It's hard to fathom a celebrity golf swing worse than Charles Barkley's. For God's sake, Hank Haney spent a whole season of his Golf Channel show trying to fix it and got nowhere.

But, maybe Barkley has a rival for the title "worst golf swing among athletes." Meet Montreal Canadiens rookie Alex Galchenyuk.

Earlier in the week, the Habs held their annual golf tournament at Laval-sur-le-Lac, and the 18-year-old teed it up to play. His swing was unfortunately captured on film.

It's not good. In fact, that's pretty much Galchenyuk's motion to take a slap shot, but a golf ball was in the way.

He's no Alex Ovechkin, that's for sure. Ovi had never played golf in his life before the Washington Capitals roped him into participating in their annual golf tournament in 2009. All the prolific scorer did was make an ace.
