Charles Barkley’s golf swing is…improving

Published

on

Charles Barkley, long a punchline of the golfing world, is taking an atypical route to making something resembling a traditional golf swing. This is a good thing. Do you want to read another article about how bad the Round Mound of Rebound looks on the tee box?

Specifically, Sir Charles is now using a non-traditional grip, going left-hand low. You can get a look at his new action courtesy of a gent by the name of Rick Schwartz.

For the sake of comparison, here’s what Barkley’s “full-body spasm” of a swing looked like with a traditional grip. It was a discordant symphony of yippiness. Behold.

Jokes about Chuck’s swing long lost any semblance of originality; hardly worth a chuckle. While Barkley’s new action certainly doesn’t look like a low-handicapper’s move, it does at least look like a golf swing, which is progress.

    Looks about as good as Eldrick’s dip. May be Eldrick should try cross-handed.

    I still can’t, for the life of me figure out why he can make a practice swing that’s mostly fluid and resembles a real swing, but the second he’s over the ball, any sense of what he’s JUST done goes out the window. The mind is a powerful thing.

    Whatever it takes. Sometimes takes something extreme to get past something extreme
