Hank Haney

If any of you guys caught the American Century Championship on TV this weekend, you might have noticed something absolutely amazing… Charles Barkley making a full swing, right handed, without a hitch.

It was a far cry from what we saw at the Regents Tradition earlier this year.

Hank (who you could see walking with Barkley on TV) seemed on Twitter:

Charles Barkley had a better tournament this yr in Tahoe at the American Century Classic, at least he made some pars and didn’t finish DFL

That’s right.  It’s all about expectations.  Set them as low as possible and then not finishing DFL seems pretty darn good.  You can see Sir Charles’s 325-yard hitch free drive on #8 after the break:

Haney Project Charles Barkley

SI’s Gary Van Sickle caught up with Hank Haney on Monday to ask him about last night’s season finale of The Haney Project.  Of course they talked about Rush and the significant improvements he’s made over the course of this season, but the great quote from Hank came when he was asked about Charles Barkley’s swing:
