Michael Phelps Books First Post Olympics Reality TV Gig!

Michael Phelps will be following up his record-breaking wins at the 2012 Summer Olympics by tackling a different sport – golf!

The 27-year-old swimmer will be starring on the upcoming fifth season of the Golf Channel’s The Haney Project as the student of Hank Haney, the former coach to 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 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 entire season will chronicle Michael filling up his pegboard of the greatest golf courses in the world while mastering his skills as a golfer. Former stars of The Haney Project include Adam Levine, Ray Romano, and Charles Barkley.
