Charles Barkley is a notoriously bad golfer. He’s got one of the ugliest celebrity swings due to an inexplicable hitch in the middle of his swing. So anytime Charles decides to pick up a club, comedy ensues. Wednesday’s Pro-Am at the Regions Tradition at Shoal Creek was bound to be comedy gold and it didn’t disappoint.
When Barkley swings, he typically winds up and then stalls in the middle only to raise his club again, reset his feet and then try and cruch the ball as his body spins violently on one leg. It’s not the way they teach you but it is hilarious and normally the only thing that breaks Charles’ ego. On Wednesday, things didn’t go as smoothly.
On the very first tee of the day, Charles lined up the ball, shook his legs and… destroyed his golf club. Yes, his swing was so bad that the head on his driver came flying off and went down the fairway. Check out the video:
Charles blamed the clubs, saying that he left them out of the bag and they were frozen so when he hit the
ball, err, the ground, it broke the club. Good thing they were free.
