Michael Phelps is the most decorated Olympian of all time, and now he takes on a new challenge as he steps onto the golf course for the Icons Series.
The 36-year-old retired swimmer is known as the G.O.A.T. of the pool, but for two days in New Jersey the 36-year-old will be trying to avoid water hazards as part of Team USA. The Americans are a diverse crew representing several major sports, and they'll take on Team ROW in a match-play format designed to maximize the entertainment value of the event while also giving the athletes a different kind of challenge.
A champion many times over, Phelps hopes to lend his considerable pedigree to an entirely different discipline.
