Earlier this week, the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship Tournament kicked off from Lake Tahoe.
A few former athletes, including Tony Romo and Charles Barkley were in the field. Romo entered as the favorite to win the tournament while Barkley was happy just being there.
We’ve all seen Barkley’s golf swing at one point or another – and it’s a truly terrifying experience.
However, Barkley appears to have improved his swing tremendously within the last few years.
During the ACC Championship this weekend, Barkley pulled off an incredible shot – even for a professional golfer.
Barkley chipped to within a few feet of the hole on No. 16.

Of course, everyone who has ever stepped foot on a golf course knows these shots are few and far between during a regular round.
Later in the tournament, Barkley was back to his normal self. He hit a poor shot during the round and let out a NSFW reply.
The former NBA star shot a 94 on the first day of the tournament. It’s not great, but Barkley did well enough to avoid sitting in last place on the day.
Barkley finished a few shots ahead of former NFL stars Jordy Nelson and Reggie Bush.
