It might not beat his 22 Olympics medals - 18 of them gold - when he looks back on his life, but American swimming star Michael Phelps had another sporting moment to savour on Friday.

Magic moment for Phelps

The 27-year-old 'Baltimore Bullet' sank a 50-yard putt playing with former Ryder Cup player Paul Casey in the second round of the Dunhill Links Championship at Kingsbarns in Scotland.

"It was the longest putt I've ever had and to see it go in was a pretty cool feeling," Phelps said.

Playing off a 16-handicap - "he's got more Olympic golds than he has shots", said Casey - the monster putt gave Phelps a net hole-in-one at the 337-yard sixth and he followed it with a net eagle.
