PLAYERS: Michael Phelps
Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps has set his sights on improving his golf game. The Golf Channel says he’ll be the next student on “The Haney Project” — that’s the show where legendary golf instructor Hank Haney helps celebrities improve their golf game. “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, said Phelps. “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.”
