There have been some terrific moments at today's Celebrity Scramble during the lead-up to the Ryder Cup at Hazeltine.

But no one is going to top Olympic Gold Medalist Michael Phelps, who stole the show during his pre-scramble warmup Tuesday.

Phelps, who is the most decorated athlete in Olympic history, was introduced before a standing ovation this afternoon. He didn't disappoint the crowd either – preparing for the tee shot the same way he prepared before jumping into the pool.
