Phelps’ athletic achievements are only equaled by the philanthropic work he’s done out of the pool.
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
The 2013 Waste Management Phoenix Open is underway in Scottsdale, Arizona. Prior to the official start of “The Greatest Show on Grass,” the popular Annexus Pro-Am event was held at TPC Scottsdale on Wednesday. One of the biggest stars on the course was legendary Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps, who created a lot of buzz with his appearance.
SilverTribe, an online leader in Native American turquoise rings, had the chance to spend some time with Phelps during the event.
“Though he may be young, Phelps truly is a living American Olympic legend,” said SilverTribe spokesman Chris Anderson. “Phelps’ athletic achievements are only equaled by the philanthropic work he’s done out of the pool. It truly was an honor to spend time with one of the great guys in all of sports.”
SilverTribe is a proud sponsor of the 2013 Waste Management Open. The four-day event at TPC Scottsdale has raised nearly $75-million for Arizona charities since its creation. More than 500,000 fans attended the event in 2012 and that number is expected to grow this year.
With 22 total medals, Phelps is the most decorated Olympian of all time. The 27-year-old Phelps finished his swimming career with six medals at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, four of which were gold.
Phelps now appears to be turning his attention to golf. He agreed to a deal that provided him with custom-built clubs for the Waste Management Open, and he will appear on a new golf series that is set to air later this year. Phelps played alongside defending Masters champion Bubba Watson at the Waste Management Open Annexus Pro-Am.
