Michael Phelps moving on?


Olympic champion Michael Phelps tries his luck at none other than golf on a new reality show.

After winning 22 Olympic medals and being titled as the best swimmer of all times, Phelps is looking for a drier experience on the golf course, as he takes part in the fifth season of the Golf Channel's The Haney Project.

When speaking of his new path, Phelps said ", As I enter this next chapter of my life, I think I will be able to shift my competitiveness to anything I put my mind to and golf is one of the things I want to focus on." He then added ", I want to play all the world's great golf courses, but I'd like to play them well. I'm excited about this project with Golf Channel and I'm looking forward to working with Hank and see what we can do together on the golf course."

Previous celebrity students include Charles Barkley, Ray Romano and Adam Levine.
