Charles Barkley is an American former professional basketball player who is an analyst on Inside the NBA. Nicknamed “Sir Charles” and “the Round Mound of Rebound”, Barkley established himself as one of the National Basketball Association’s most dominant power forwards.
Barkley was an 11-time NBA All-Star, an 11-time member of the All-NBA Team, and the 1993 NBA Most Valuable Player (MVP). Charles Barkley has agreed to put his atrocious golf skills on display to the world, all for a charity match with Peyton Manning, Steph Curry and Phil Mickelson.
Yep, Sir Chuck is replacing Tom Brady for “The Match 3” which is expected to raise millions for Covid-19 relief, according to Sportico. Remember, The Match 2 back in May was a huge success, with Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning taking on Phil and Tom Brady. Since TB12 is a little busy these days with the NFL season, Barkley has offered to step in and take his spot.
The only issue, Barkley is a terrible golfer! Like, super bad! But, this event will be more about the trash talk than a showcase of Chuck’s skills on the links. Tiger is also out for the event he will be replaced by Steph Curry, who is actually really good. The Match 3 is set to go down on Friday, November 27 and will hope to break the USD20 million raised for charity by the Match 2.
Of course, Tom Brady famously struggled most of the way during The Match 2 (even splitting his pants on live TV) only to redeem himself with an unreal shot on the 7th hole! Can Chuck do better? Probably not, but it will be fun to watch!
