Barkley.Regions.jpgBIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Former basketball star Charles Barkley, whose difficulties with golf have been well chronicled, had a hiccup of a different kind on the first hole of the pro-am at the Regions Tradition on Wednesday at Shoal Creek.

Barkley's look says it all after his driver clubhead snapped off. Fortunately, it flew down the fairway and no one was hurt.
