It looks like NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley may have some competition for the worst golf swing. Washington Wizards big man Moe Wagner tried to enjoy his off day at Top Golf, but instead was the butt of a joke after his golf swing went viral on the internet.

Wagner may want to just focus on basketball at this point because that's one of the worst looking golf swings. The Wizards are hoping Wagner can redeem himself by producing well for them on the basketball court this season. Washington acquired Wagner from the Lakers in a three-team trade on July 6.
Wagner, a 6-11 center, averaged 4.8 points and 2.0 rebounds for the Lakers last season in 43 games. He was the 25th overall pick in the 2018 Draft out of Michigan.
Both Hart and Wagner were dealt by the Lakers this offseason in the blockbuster Anthony Davis trade. Hart gets to restart his NBA career with the Pelicans alongside Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram, while Wagner will try and carve out a role with the Wizards.
One thing which is clear is that Wagner will probably steer clear of hitting the driving range, especially if there is a camera around.
