Today we take a look at the golf swing of Charles Barkley. If you follow golf, you have surely seen his very odd swing in action. His swing is usually the object of ridicule, and amazement, and head-shaking.
He stops his downswing halfway, lurches at the ball, then finally slaps and lunges at the ball in a motion that is really hard to do. It's actually quite amazing that he hits the ball at all. Have a look:
What can you possibly learn from such a swing? That you can hit a decent golf shot without a backswing!
There is a drill called the No Backswing Golf Swing that is worth looking at. You take a stance much like a baseball player, with your wrist cocked 90 degrees, and your left arm parallel to the ground. You then make a very small shoulder turn to mimic the full backswing and hit the ball as normal.
|The starting position for the "No Backswing Golf Swing" approximates a perfect downswing position without the hassle of executing a backswing.|
Indeed, Charles himself would benefit. If he would just regroup and do the "small backswing" before his downswing instead of his off-balance slap, he would be the Official Spokesman for the No Backswing Golf Swing. Perhaps, he could add this to his long list of endorsements.
Still, you really have to hand it to Charles. How many of us would go out and play golf in front of fans with cameras rolling if we had a swing like this? Not many. You have to respect that.
