Michael Phelps might be trading in his goggles and speedo for golf clubs and a caddy! Just kidding, but the winner of a record 18 gold medals in Olympic swimming did sign a golf deal with Ping!

He made an appearance in the Phoenix Open pro-am on Wednesday and was fitted for a set of clubs to fit his 6-foot-4 frame.

When Phelps was told that he sport might be joining the Olympic program at the 2016 Rio Games, he chuckled and said:

Hey, you never know. Being a golfer at the Olympics would be kind of fun.

Phelps, an Olympic golfer? Hmmm…not sure about that. What do you think?

Meanwhile, the 27-year-old posed for this month’s GQ Italia’s! He looks quite spiffy with his suit and coiffed hair posing in some cool underwater shots. Make sure to launch the gallery to check out photos of the shoot!
