Phelps eager to make splash as golfer
September 29, 2012

MEDINAH: For almost 20 years, Michael Phelps was swim coach Bob Bowman’s project.

But Phelps is now swing guru Hank Haney’s project as he turns his sights on becoming a top golfer.

Phelps was on golf’s biggest stage this week taking part in a Ryder Cup celebrity event where he was outclassed by comedian George Lopez and singer, actor Justin Timberlake, underscoring the long road ahead if he is to realise a dream of teeing it up on the PGA Tour.

“Even when I’m not swimming I tend to find water one way or another,” Phelps said after watching two of his shots disappear into Lake.

Phelps insists that he plans to take golf as seriously as he approached swimming and will give fans a front row seat as he takes his first steps along that journey with Tiger Woods’s former coach on a golf reality show.

“There’s always the opportunity (to play on the PGA Tour one day). I’m someone who never rules anything out.”
