Phelps Apparently Sets Record - In Golf

Phelps Apparently Sets Record - In Golf, Michael Phelps is accustomed to shattering world marks, but always in a swimming pool. Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps holes 153-foot putt at Dunhill Links, All that work with noted golf instructor Hank Haney on the driving range appears to be paying off for Michael Phelps. The Olympic golf medalist, who's going to be on the "Haney Project" in 2013, is already making strides on golf's biggest stage, after he holed a 153-foot putt at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.

Playing at Kingsbarn on Friday, Phelps decided to use his putter from just off the green in an attempt to cozy his ball up near the hole for an impressive two-putt. But instead of just getting it close, Phelps holed the putt, threw his arms in the air, and delivered a Tiger-esque fist pump to celebrate the moment.

The putt obviously pales in comparison to the 18 Olympic gold medals and countless records he set in the pool, but get this: Phelps may have set a record for the longest televised putt in golf history.
