Charles Barkley fixed his golf swing?

Posted by Ryan Wilson

When talking about golf, Charles Barkley is familiar with last place. Despite the worst swing in the 600-year history of the sport, Sir Charles continues to persevere, often with thousands, if not millions of people watching. He was featured on Golf Channel's "Haney Project," a reality show where swing coach Hank Haney was tasked with fixing this. Not surprisingly, Barkley's hitch won out.

But there is a happy ending of sorts. Last week was the American Century Championship, an annual celebrity golf event in Tahoe, Nevada, where Barkley finished dead last a year ago. This time around, with a shiny, new swing in tow, Barkley finished 81st out of 83 players (if you're interested, Jimmer Fredette brought up the rear this time around).

Hey, it's progress. And more than that, Chuck appears to have conquered the demons that had taken over his body. No longer does he appear to have a seizure mid-backstroke.

And to celebrate the occasion, Charles did the "Dougie" (of course he did):
