On eBay: Barkley's clubhead, proceeds to charity

May 07, 2011

The clubhead that separated from the shaft on Charles Barkley's first swing of the Regions Tradition Pro-Am on Wednesday at Shoal Creek has been autographed and is now for sale at auction on eBay, proceeds to go to tornado disaster relief efforts.

Here is the YouTube video of the shot, which has been viewed more than 800,000 times.

"It's amazing," Barkley said after the clubhead snapped off. "The club went farther than the ball."

The latest bid for the clubhead was $150.
