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
