VIDEO: And now Charles Barkley has resorted to a one-handed golf swing


Just when you thought Charles Barkley's golf swing couldn't get any worse, he decides to take one hand out of the equation entirely.

At the American Century Championship this weekend, the NBA on TNT analyst showed the hitch in his swing has become so inhibiting that Barkley has to hit the golf ball one-handed. That's turrible.

As you might imagine, Barkley finished last in the modified Stableford format. He was -98 -- and that's bad in the format -- locking up DFL by five points over Hilary Knight. Barkley lost to Larry the Cable Guy by 41 points.

He basically shot 106 for each of three rounds. The good news is, Paul Azinger believes Barkley has nowhere to go but up, and he's putting his mane on the line.

Take him up on it, Chuckwagon.
