Is there anything Michael Phelps can’t do? Now as the world-record holder as the most decorated Olympian in history, Phelps took his mind-boggling athletic  achievements to whole new level over the weekend at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland.

Phelps has taken up golf in the past couple of months under the wing of instructor Hank Haney and showed off his amazing natural ability at the golf championship Friday. Playing with former Ryder Cup champ, Paul Casey, Phelps made an impressive shot by holing an over 50-yard putt just off the green.

His intentions were to get his ball closer to the hole for a two-putt shot, but instead, Phelps sunk the 153-foot shot, which may now be the new record for the longest putt caught on TV. The previous record was set by broadcaster Terry Wogan, who holed a 99-foot putt at Gleneagles in 1981, according to Yahoo! Sports.

Watch Phelps make the incredible putt, which took 17 seconds to reach the hole:
