Michael Phelps is done with swimming, so what sport will he try to dominate next?
How about golf?
The Golf Channel announced Saturday that the Olympic legend would be the next student on The Haney Project, a show that features teaching guru Hank Haney helping celebrities improve their golf game.
"I have traveled the world through swimming but really haven't had an opportunity to experience the world through my travels," Phelps said in a news release issued by the Golf Channel. "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."
Previous celebrities on the show include Charles Barkley, Rush Limbaugh and Ray Romano.
Phelps, who just put his name in the record books by winning the most medals in Olympic history, is very serious about improving his game.
"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," he said in the release. "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."
