Charles Barclay is not afraid to speak his mind. It is one of the many reasons why he is one of the most famous sports analysts in the field after becoming one of the most famous sports analysts.
While appearing on Friday’s Pat McAfee Show, the 11-time All-Star and current TNT analyst on the LIV Golf and PGA Tour controversy and backing players took money to join the Greg Norman Series that was funded by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund .
“I want all the LIV guys to top the leaderboard,” Barkley said of what he wants to see at the US Open this week. “I want to see the PGA Tour rocking in their damn shoes. Listen, I’m not a religious guy but I want to mess around this weekend at the US Open.”
“I don’t judge others. Listen, if someone gave me $200 million I would kill one of their relatives,” Barkley joked before he doubled down on the matter. “I’m serious. They say Phil Mickelson got $200 million, Dustin Johnson got $150 million, for $150 million I’ll kill soon, even if I love him.”
Unfortunately for Barkley, players who joined the LIV series suffered greatly at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts, outside Dustin Johnson and a few others. Barkley’s close friend Mickelson fired 78-73 to finish 11 after 36 holes.
