Charles Barkley to Swing it Around Dallas for Golf Channel Series
Maybe you'll see Charles Barkley around town in coming days, as it looks as though he'll be in the DFW to shoot a series for the Golf Channel about how awful he is with a stick. Barkley will be here specifically to work with Hank Haney -- Tiger Woods' coach, course -- to fix his own swing, which is "some ugly [stuff], isn’t it?," Barkley tells USA Today, though I don't think he said "stuff." Barkley says the show will start filming in Dallas in a couple of weeks. Till then, may I suggest the advice of Roy McAvoy, who once said of the golf swing that "it's alive, this swing, a living sculpture and down through contact, always down, striking the ball crisply, with character. A tuning fork goes off in your heart and your balls. Such a pure feeling is the well-struck golf shot." So I hear. --Robert Wilonsky
