Watch: Barkley's golf swing no longer a disaster


Charles Barkley's golf swing used to have more hitch in it than a Will Smith romantic comedy.

Now ... not so much.

The NBA on TNT analyst showed off his fresh form during a practice round at tree-lined Edgewood Tahoe South G.C., which hosts the American Century Championship.

"This is the best I've seen him play, and I've known him a long time," said Harveys and Harrah's casinos executive Mark Mitchell, who was a part of Barkley's group. "He pauses in his swing occasionally, but not like he used to."

While not perfect, it's certainly light years better than what it once was.
