Michael Phelps has announced that he will star in the fifth season of THE HANEY PROJECT, a reality show on The Golf Channel. The series follows Tiger Woods's former coach Hank Haney as he attempts to teach celebrities how to master the game of golf.
Revealed the Olympian, "I have traveled the world through swimming, but really haven't had an opportunity to experience the world through my travels. 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 swimmer added that he hopes the series will improve his golf game commenting, "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."
In explaining his decision to join the show, Phelps added, "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."
