Watch: Charles Barkley's golf swing is actually decent

At first it was comical, but eventually observers had to cover their eyes when Charles Barkley tried to hit a golf ball.

Barkley has been dealing with the yips on the golf course for years, but the basketball Hall of Famer showed up to the American Century Championship this week with much better form.

The secret for Barkley's improvement looks to be in his hands, as he's switched to a left-handed low grip, a style used by many golfers to correct putting troubles.
