Michael Phelps is a marvel. 23 gold medals at the Olympics, the biggest stage of them all. He said he would do it – win all gold medals at the Olympics and boy did he do it in style at the Beijing Olympics back in 2008. He’s definitely one of the greatest Olympians of all time.
Phelps retired in 2016 after the Rio Olympics, in which he took part coming out of retirement. Michael has been known to play golf and has often been seen around golf stars, plying his trade with theirs. He has an unusual record in the game of golf too.
Michael Phelps astonish 160 feet putt shocks everyone
Michael’s love for the game is widespread as he’s seen dabbling with his golf clubs from time to time. It was in 2012, that he was seen participating in some tournaments. And be it “beginner’s luck” or whatever you might want to call it, a special moment arrived for Phelps.
Phelps has broken many records in the swimming pool. His ability to swim is definitely unparalleled. Also, his sheer will and mentality are what make him stand apart from the rest. He shattered another record but not at the pool this time around. It was just land, a green patch of land.
Michael was playing at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship where he made the longest recorded putt on television. A rare hit for ‘hole-in-one’, Phelps was astonished as he didn’t believe what he had done. A 159 feet putt, is something professional players also can’t produce on a daily basis.
Looks like, a sports person can adapt to anything they want. Although, it is Ian Poulter who holds the record for the longest putt, a 163-feet shot; Phelps just shy by 4 feet.
