Charles Barkley turned 51 years young in February, so to celebrate we gathered nine of Sir Charles’ worst golf swings in the history of the universe.
Happy golfing, good Sir. With any luck you’ll be out torturing a a tee box at some point in the near future. Preferably not within striking distance of another human being. No offense.
The Ol’ Stanky Leg Equalizer
I’m not quite sure how Charles manages to move his back leg in front of his left at impact, because that should be physically impossible, seeing as though his weight remains in the middle of his “stance.” He might be a magician.
Reload until You’re Ready (Slo-Mo)
This is really painful to watch, so I apologize. But just look at how hard Charles is working to stop his swing, reload, stop, reload, stop and reload one last time. It’s as if he forgets where he is three times in the midst of his swing.
Swizzle Legs Club Breaker Shock and Awe
Charles’ leg muscles are on overdrive in this video, shaking to the point of failure milliseconds before breaking his driver. The expression on his face is absolutely fantastic. It’s as if he can’t believe how bad that was.
The $1,000 Long Drive Bet
For some ungodly reason, Charles bet Kenny Smith $1,000 that he could outdrive him. He also agreed to do that on video. I feel like he needs an intervention.
We Are Getting Closer!
Actually, this one wasn’t so bad. He still has a hitch, but it’s only one stutter before hitting a monstrous 100-yard drive. On the roll, kids. On the roll.
Just Keep Your Head Down, Chuck!
UGH. JUST SO CLOSE. WHY DO YOU STOP?!? So frustrating.
The One-Handed Miracle
He just hit that shot one-handed. Even crazier? It almost looked natural.
The Sweaty Camera Man Assassin
Chuck’s had a long day. His shirt is drenched in sweat. He lost his hat somewhere. He’s out of sunscreen. And you are sitting there with a damn video camera. Chuck’s got something for you.
Tiger Makes Fun of Charles
You know what? If Tiger Woods wants to take time out of his day to make fun of my golf swing, I say go for it. I’ll consider it a badge of honor.
...And One For Good Luck
Seeing as it's his birthday, (and because it's just so turribly funny,) we give you the ultimate Charles Barkley montage of turrible swings:
