Who is the worst retired NBA star turned golfer?
For years Charles Barkley was the runaway winner in this category, but now he has some competition. Yao Ming played in a celebrity golf tournament in China and… he’s not good. Not that you really expect him to be — when you are 7’6″ there are a whole lot of things that can go wrong in your swing. But he’s not good. The stance is awkward, the club seems too short (can you say custom-made shafts?) and there is just a whole lot of badness.
But it’s for charity, so we’ll just laugh it off. And if you want to compare it to Barkley…
