Everybody knows Charles Barkley isn’t the best when it comes to handling his money and whether or not he wants to admit it–there’s no question the former NBA star and current analyst has a gambling problem. So when a story is released surrounding Sir Charles and how he just started handing out $100 bills for no reason over the weekend to fans at a golf course–it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone.
Barkley participated in the American Century Championship in Lake Tahoe over the weekend and he apparently was carrying a boatload of cash on him as he decided to be generous and just start handing out $100 bills to those in attendance. Check out some of the tweets below by fans who were lucky enough to receive this special gift from Barkley.

A note to all of you sports fans for the future, if Barkley is participating in a local golf event in your area, it may not be a bad idea to go watch him participate. Even if Barkley isn’t the best golfer in the world to watch live, at least it could work out in the end if you’re lucky enough to land a cash prize just for being in attendance.
