Phelps Holes Longest Ever Televised Putt

Phelps Holes Longest Ever Televised Putt, Olympic swimming legend Michael Phelps holed an incredible putt at the Dunhill Links pro-am. Phelps holes longest ever televised putt, The American's drive at the downhill, 337-yard par-four sixth hole at Kingsbarns, one of three courses being used at this week's tournament, finished just short of the green and he jumped with delight after rolling in his eagle putt on Friday.

"A 50-yard putt!", exclaimed Phelps who has won 22 Olympic medals including 18 golds. "That was the longest putt I've ever holed so it was pretty incredible.

"To be able to have a net hole-in-one was special but even without that this trip has been even more special, just having the opportunity to come over here and play among these players on these courses is incredible."

Phelps's effort was shown on Sky Sports and the Tour said they believed it was "the longest televised putt in history", at least in Europe.
