STATELINE — The Round Mound of Rebound put his new hip — and same old swing — on display Thursday, July 21, at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course. Charles Barkley’s 2016 debut highlighted the conclusion of the celebrity-am on the eve of the 27th annual American Century Championship.

Stephen Curry had the largest gallery of the day, even with an 8 a.m. tee time. Barkley got his round going in the afternoon — and only required two attempts to hit his opening tee shot on the first hole.
