Michael Phelps has a 24 handicap, which is, wow, a lot. But anyone who doubts that the potential is there for the great swimmer to become a great golfer should watch the video below. It’s in the hole!

It happened at the Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland, on the par 4 6th.

This is what can happen when there are no dogs around to steal your ball.
