Charles Barkley is the US’ and perhaps the world’s most famous
terrible golfer, and he debuted a new swing that could potentially
cement that claim for the rest of his life while competing in the
American Century Championship last weekend.
Barkley, the future NBA Hall of Famer whose game is about as erratic
as his weight, went with a one-handed tee shot during the competition,
to the delight, humor, and sheer amazement of fans in attendance at
Not surprisingly, Barkley finished dead last in the competition,
shooting a 106-107-106 – 319 to finish 103 strokes over par, giving him a
total of -98 points in the competition.
Barkley failed to par a single hole, and fired only five bogeys, everything else was at least a double bogey.
The tournament was won by former Super Bowl MVP quarterback Mark
Rypien, who finished 5-under thanks to a third-round 67, giving him a
tournament-leading 76 points.
Players get one point for every par recorded, three for every birdie, and six for every eagle.
On the flip side, they receive zero points for a bogey, and lose two
points for every hole where they score a double bogey or worse.
Rypien ran away with the crown in the third round, finishing 11
points ahead of former hockey player Jeremy Roenick and retired women’s
pro golfer Annika Sorenstam. Actor Jack Wagner was fourth, followed by
amputee golfer and Iraqi War veteran Chad Pfeifer.
Barkley finished 86th (last) behind such luminaries as Alan Thicke and Larry the Cable Guy.
