Your New World Record Holder For Longest Televised Putt Ever Made: Michael Phelps | Sharapova's Thigh

So apparently Michael Phelps should've been on the USA's Ryder Cup team? I say that after watching this 159-foot putt  that the 18-time Olympic gold medalist made at the Dunhill Links Championship Pro-Am on Friday in Scotland:


How amazing was that putt from the 27-year-old Phelps? Well, it took a whopping 17 seconds to go into the cup.

Oh, and I guess this is worth mentioning: According to The Daily Mail, the estimated 159-foot/53-yard putt is believed to be the LONGEST TELEVISED PUTT EVER MADE.

The Daily Mail adds, "It certainly beat the famous 33-yard putt by by broadcaster Terry Wogan at Gleneagles in 1981, which held the world record for the longest televised putt."

Absolutely unbelievable.
