Michael Phelps Lands New Golf Channel Gig
You would think Michael Phelps would be tired from all that swimming, but he's actually ready to take on new projects! The most-decorated Olympian in history has signed on to star in The Haney Project, a Golf Channel show that will make him the student of Hank Haney, the former coach of Tiger Woods.
“I have traveled the world through swimming, but really haven’t had an opportunity to experience the world through my travels,” Michael 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.”
The show will follow Michael as he receives one-on-one instruction from Hank, who is no stranger to celebrity students! Past seasons of the show have paired him with Ray Romano, Charles Barkley and Adam Levine.
“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.”
