Barkley's most recent outing was at the Regions Tradition Pro-Am, where he was paired with golf legend Fred Couples and Bruce Pearl, the new basketball coach at Barkley's alma mater Auburn. Sir Charles did not disappoint, hacking his way through 18 holes to the delight of the crowd.

Barkley said he was heartened by the fact that Pearl was also a bad golfer, although reports Pearl got a pretty good shot on the former MVP when he tried to tee up outside of the box.

"I know this is the SEC," Pearl said, "but we actually play by the rules here."
