Phelps sinks 159-foot putt in Scotland

We might have been too harsh on American swimmer golfer Michael Phelps after he and partner Paul Casey finished day one of the Alfred Dunhill Links pro-am in 160th place (out of 168) after shooting a par 72.

On Friday the 18-time gold medalist made up for his performance with probably the best shot of the day from either an amateur or pro when he sank an amazing 159-foot putt (now measured) for eagle on the par 4 sixth hole at Kingbarns Golf Links in St. Andrews, Scotland.

We could describe it, but better to just let you watch for yourselves:
