JORDAN, BARKLEY MOBBED; TREVINO FINDS LOST BALLS

SHARE JORDAN, BARKLEY MOBBED; TREVINO FINDS LOST BALLS

Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley got all the attention, and Lee Trevino got golf balls.

His Airness and Sir Charles overshadowed Trevino, Arnold Palmer and everyone else on the Greystone Golf Club course Thursday with a $1,500-a-hole skins game for charity.Palmer and Alabama football coach Gene Stallings didn't have to contend with the crush of fans and media surrounding the basketball stars; their group had a later tee time.

But Trevino was right in the middle of it, playing in a fivesome with two of the best-known shaved heads in sports.

"It was the most relaxing day I've had in a while. Nobody wanted my autograph. Everybody wanted Jordan's and Barkley's," said Trevino, who spent part of the round dipping an iron in creeks in search of lost balls.

"Barkley had 10 skins, Michael had eight, and I found 10 balls. I got nothing," Trevino said.

Jordan, playing with a 1 handicap to Barkley's 11, claimed he didn't know what he shot.

"Charles hit 'em better than I did, that's what so sad," the retired NBA star said before heading off to his real job: playing right field with the Birmingham Barons.
