LIV Golf has its eyes set on Charles Barkley.

The Saudibacked golf organization has already poached some of the best players in the world away from the PGA Tour, and LIV Golf is now gunning for a partnership of some kind with Charles Barkley. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

“I’m going to meet with LIV…They called me and asked if I would meet with them, and I said yes. Nothing is imminent. I actually don’t know everything they want from me or what the want me to do, but you’ve always got to look at every opportunity that’s available,” the former NBA superstar said during an appearance on “The Next Round” when asked about if he’s looking at teaming up with the golf organization.

If LIV Golf manages to snatch Charles Barkley and make him some kind of spokesman or media representative, it would be another massive boost for the startup golf league.

Already, some of the best players on the planet, including Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Bryan DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka, have already jumped ship to LIV Golf.

Their departures from the PGA Golf have caused major issues in the golf world as LIV Golf continues to ascend. Making Charles Barkley the face of the organization and promoter would be an unreal boost.

He’s one of the most popular athletes in America and everyone loves him. If LIV Golf can team up with him, it would only add further credibility to the organization.

Will it happen? Only time will tell, but clearly the wheels are turning at least a little bit!
