Michael Phelps, who snatched his 22nd Olympic medal this year, caught the eye of some eager eyes as he donned a golf gear instead of his swim-wear at the pro-am golf tournament that took place in China. He also attracted some golf players.
When some players spend long time to perfect their game, the Olympic champion seems to have all the needed skills to be a professional golfer. He learnt golf from Hank Haney, the coach of Tiger Woods.
The Olympic told that he had scope to speak with Matt Kuchar coming down to the seventeenth and they talked about it. Matt told him that Michael has a smooth and good swing. For the Olympic, it is all about learning how to hit the right shot at a perfect time and getting muscle memory. Michael Phelps added that he would see a lot more results when he will spend a lot of time in the range.
But Michael’s new found love have not kept him out of the water for very long as the Olympic champion took some time to teach swimming to his fellow US golfer Matt Kuchar’s kids at the Mission Hills Resort located at an tropical island Hainan.
In the Mission Hills World Celebrity Pro-Am event, Michael was joined by several other acting and sporting legends like Darren Clarke, Pat Cash, Stephen Hendry, Ronaldo, Yao Ming, Minka Kelly, Adrien Brody, Ryan Reynolds and Andy Garcia.
