Phelps the subject of the next 'The Haney Project' on Golf Channel
Now we know what Michael Phelps will be doing at the start of his post-swimming career.
The Golf Channel announced Saturday that Phelps, who has the Olympic record for most medals won with 22, will be the subject of the next "The Haney Project."
TGC's Hank Haney, the former swing coach of Tiger Woods, will help Phelps improve his game from tee-to-green.
"I have traveled the world through swimming, but really haven’t had an opportunity to experience the world through my travels," Phelps said in a statement. "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. If I have a goal of dropping a certain amount of shots, or working on my short game or putting, those things are going to keep me motivated and fire me up and keep me excited. 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."
The show will begin taping in September.
