Charles has been all over the news this Summer with stories on him still going to casinos, sending a Busboy to College, calling the media a bunch of "jackasses" who are "out to get him" and taking up boxing. Life never slows down for Barkley and now he's actually looking to add a reality show on the Golf Channel to his busy schedule.
What's the show going to be about you ask? Well Charles has talked to Tiger Woods' Swing Coach, Hank Haney about doing a show to help him with his Golf game and wants to call it "Fix Charles Barkley's Swing". Via Game On....
The Hall of Fame basketball player and TNT analyst tells USA TODAY’s Jon Saraceno that he met with Hank Haney, who is Tiger Woods’ swing coach, to discuss a show to be televised by the Golf Channel. Filming, he says, begins in a couple of weeks in Dallas.

In the last celebrity tournament Sir Charles played in, he finished dead last. Well that's not true....Gene Upshaw withdrew and finished eighty second. Barkley shot a -81 (Stableford scoring) and was beaten by such "celebrities" as Kevin Nealon, Stone Phillips, Pedro Cerano, and Lou F'ING Holtz!
The goal: “Fix Charles Barkley’s swing,’’ says Sir Charles, who took Woods’ suggestion and called Haney. “It’s some ugly (stuff), isn’t it? It’s not only terrible, it’s embarrassing.’’
“I was telling Hank (Tuesday) that when I’m standing over the ball, I’m (expletive deleted) terrified. I have no idea what’s going to happen. He told me he used to have the yips, but not as bad as me. That’s what makes me think he can fix what’s wrong.’’
These days you either, have to accept that you're terrible and cut your losses, or just do a reality show completely making fun of yourself. I think we can all agree that he should go with option number two.
For Charles Barkley it don't mean a thing if you don't have that swing (Game On)
