He could always make a gentlemen’s bet with Lou Holtz for who will come in dead last, right?
On a conference call this week for the American Century Golf Championship, Jason Kidd said that Barkley is staying on the wagon:
“I was at a recent event with Charles in Palm Springs and we were at a casino. While he could have been tempted by the surroundings, he did not participate. I think once he makes up his mind not to do something, he sticks with it and will be alright.”
Barkley is a 500-1 underdog to win the Celebrity-Am Tournament that takes place in Lake Tahoe the first week in July. Lou Holtz, Brandy Chastain, and Kevin Nealon are the next biggest underdogs at 300-1.
On Barkley’s golf, Kidd said:
“Everyone knows he’s the worst golfer. But he’s also one of the funniest and most popular. But he is the worst golfer I’ve ever seen.”
