Steph Curry and Phil Mickelson already taking shots at Charles Barkley’s golf swing

Another celebrity golf match is set this week, though for the first time in this series it will be without Tiger Woods. Worried it will lack drama? Insert Charles Barkley, whose golf swing is, uh, interesting. (That’s being nice.) On Friday, he will team up with Phil Mickelson against three-time NBA champion Steph Curry and two-time Super Bowl winner Peyton Manning in “The Match: Champions for Change.”

Let’s just say Curry and Mickelson are getting a head start on heckling Barkley.

It started innocently enough, with a simple promo.

Count it! πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜‚ The “Phlop Shot” gets the @StephenCurry30 treatment. Look out @PhilMickelson….he’s comin’ for you. #TheMatch #ChampionsForChange pic.twitter.com/7vDKTs5QZL

That’s when Mickelson got involved.

I wasn’t worried about next week’s Match but I kind of am now 😳

They couldn’t resist, and so Barkley got dragged into things.

Your biggest worry should be your partner’s swing. πŸ‘€πŸ˜ #TheMatch #ChampionsforChange @CallawayGolf https://t.co/GCeU4deAj4

In case you’ve never seen Barkley’s swing, Curry was here to help.

They’re gonna have to put that 24 second shot clock on Chuck for this thing. He’s gonna be burning daylight out there @PhilMickelson πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ #TheMatch pic.twitter.com/1Wb38AL9QC

Losing to this swing will be DEVASTATING πŸ˜‚ https://t.co/wuiqHpQU9i

This is the third match in this series. The first one pitted Mickelson against Woods. The second had Woods and Peyton Manning team up against Mickelson and Tom Brady. For that one, Barkley was part of the broadcast group. Now, Barkley, and his much-talked-about golf swing, will be on full display.
